Selena Gomez Had 8 Of Top 10 Instagrams Of 2016


There was an era, now buried deep in the annals of American history (April) when Kendall Jenner's artsy hair Instagram post reigned supreme as the app's most-liked photo.

Kendall was dethroned in May 2016 by Justin Bieber's perpetual heart boner for Selena Gomez and, by December 2016, has been full-on trounced by Selena herself.

The digital world has spoken: Cha'girl SG is the high priestess of Insta, with eight of her photos ranking among the site's top 10 most-liked posts of the calendar year.

In fact, the only other celeb to crack the top 10 was soccer hottie Cristiano Ronaldo.

Selena accomplished social media domination during the same year she took a break from the spotlight to seek treatment for anxiety and depression. She recently told Thrive Global,

The thing is, Selenators never take a day off, keeping their queen's Insta game unbeatable.

Overall? Great choices this year, people. Really solid stuff.

Despite her success online and IRL, Selena admitted to the audience at last month's American Music Awards she's done seeking validation from followers.

Amen, hallelujah.
