Ariana Grande had subtly told us that she was a goddess when she sang if god is a woman, and right now she has become the chief goddess of Instagram.
The if god is a woman singer has officially taken the throne from Selena Gomez as she now becomes the most followed female on Instagram. However, the results are still pretty tight. According to the information gathered from billboard Ariana Grande now has a total of 146,286,173 active followers on Instagram well Selena Gomez follows closely behind with a total of 146,267,801 followers. No doubt both ladies have done very well for themselves on this social media platform because these numbers are very remarkable and they are not easy to achieve.
I must, however, remind you that even though Ariana Grande now has followers as much as 146 million plus, she still has not taken the spot of the soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who has an increasing number of followers and currently has been able to gather above 155 million followers. Cristiano Ronaldo became the god of Instagram in October last year when he took the number one spot from Selena Gomez.
According to the billboard in the last four months over thirteen million more people added the seven rings singer to their Instagram feeds. This massive following likely has a whole lot to do with the release of her second studio album in six months titled thank you, next. There is also a high chance that it had some connections with her breakup with Pete Davidson back in October last year.
Ariana Grande who is 25 years old has frequently made use of social media as a channel of close communication with her millions of fans around the world. Grande has a total of 61 million followers on Twitter, and that platform seems to be her favourite social media platform of all time it has been noticed that Twitter is where she drops hints and secrets about her music and personal life. For example, she recently told her followers on twitter about how she had plans of returning to Manchester for a show exactly two years after the tragic attack at the Manchester arena where she was having a concert. The attack left a total of 22 people dead.
In a tweet on Monday Grande wrote “manchester babes, I’m so thrilled to be headlining pride. My heart. i can’t wait to see u, and i love u so so much.”
Ariana also seems to be a fan of Instagram stories because that is where she has been posting some updates about her daily activities and her life with her pet, her family, and her friends.
Ariana Grande also uses Instagram as a medium to show how honest she is to keep breaking records and remaining on top of the music charts.
While for Ariana Grande right now it is time to take social media by storm, Selena Gomez has decided to take the opposite route. Selena had earlier taken a four months break from posting content on her Instagram before months break started from September 2018 to January 2019.
In the month of October 2018, Selena Gomez checked into a treatment facility to get help for depression and anxiety; hence the hiatus she took from social media. A couple of weeks before she checked in to the facility Selena Gomez had opened up on a live video on Instagram about her depression and anxiety and how she’s convinced that the internet had a role to play in all of it. Gomez also revealed in the video that she does not even have the Instagram application on her phone and for that reason, she said she doesn’t understand why her number of followers were increasing at such a speed. “It’s just a number, and it’s insane that people are so obsessed with a number. It’s like chill out. Who gives an f—k?” Gomez said
The singer also took the opportunity to explain to her fans while she would like to take a break from the entire social media space. “As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given,” Selena shared. “Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember: negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings.”

It’s been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support. Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.
In January of 2019, Selena Gomez came back on social media, and she did so with a very candy post about her absence from the space.
She captioned some polaroid photos of herself “It’s been a while since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support. Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming.”
In conclusion, Ariana Grande said “Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.”
In the midst of all of this, there was a bright shining star we noticed, and that is on the 7th of February 2019 Zac Efron began following Selena Gomez on Instagram, and we are expecting a whole lot more from that relationship than just social media.
This is us saying a huge congratulation to Ariana Grande as she becomes queen of Instagram and we hope that thousands of new followers will flood her account in the coming months.
