Ariana Grande continues to shatter records across multiple social media platforms.
The 25-year-old singer, who is the most-followed female musician on YouTube, has now achieved the same status on Instagram. Grande, who counts 146.29 million followers, according to Billboard, has defeated Selena Gomez, who previously held the top spot and currently counts 146.27 million followers. Grande and Gomez are the second and third most-followed accounts on Instagram overall after soccer luminary Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 156 million followers.
Billboard notes that Grande has gained 13 million Instagram followers in the past four months due to her “hyperactive presence,” while Gomez, on the other hand, checked into an inpatient facility to treat mental health issues in September, sharing that she would be taking an extended break from social media.
Shortly before her ascent on Instagram, Grande became the most-subscribed female musician on YouTube earlier this month — with 33.2 million subscribers and counting — after surpassing previous record holders Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. On YouTube, Grande is second in subscribers only to Justin Bieber. On the video platform, she also holds the distinction of the biggest 24-hour music video debut for the title track form her latest album Thank U, Next.
