Just call Selena Gomez the queen of Instagram.
The 24-year-old "Good For You" singer basically slayed the 'gram game in 2016, not only as the most-followed celebrity account, but also with her crazy popular photos and videos! According to new stats obtained exclusively by ET, Selena's most viral video of the year was this adorable clip dancing with 7-year-old Internet sensation Audrey Nethery.
Gomez tops Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Beyonce and more as the celeb with the most followers on the platform, totaling 103 million. Taylor comes in second place with 93.9 million, followed by Ariana's 90.2 million, and Bey's 89.2 million. Filling out the top five is Kim Kardashian West, with 88.2 million followers.
Elsewhere on the list is soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, in sixth place, who is the only person to give Gomez a run for her money in the "likes" department. Of the top 10 most-liked celebrity Insta posts of 2016, Selena contributed eight and Cristiano, two.
Gomez took a hard-earned break from the spotlight, and social media, earlier this year in order to focus on her health. The singer made her triumphant return to the stage on Nov. 20 to accept the Female Artist of the Year honor at the American Music Awards.
"I think it's safe to say most of you know my life whether I liked it or not. And I had to stop, because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside, and I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down," she said candidly.
"I have a lot to be thankful for this year," she wrote. "My year has been the hardest, yet most rewarding one yet. I've finally fought the fight of not 'being enough.' I have only wanted to reflect the love you guys have given me for years and show how important it is to take care of YOU. By grace through faith. Kindness always wins. I love you guys. God bless."
