Selena Gomez is no longer Instagram's most-followed woman after she recently lost the title to another famous singer, who just managed to swipe her place.

Read on to find out who...

Selena Gomez lost an Instagram title today...

And fans think there's a big reason behind it...

For a long time, Gomez hit the headlines for her relationship with Justin Bieber.

The pair had a longstanding on-again, off-again relationship - and many believed they would end up together in the end.

But sadly, things weren't to be.

And it seemed as though Bieber couldn't give Gomez the love she deserved amid his struggles with drug abuse and the struggles of fame.

Justin has since addressed his poor behavior.

And while not making excuses, he's owned up to his past and expressed regret for his treatment of Gomez in his youth.

The pair split for good in March of 2018.

And very quickly, Justin jumped into another tumultuous, whirlwind romance - this time with model and daughter of Stephen Baldwin, Hailey.

The pair secretly married in September of 2018.

Notice anything about that date? Well, just 5 months beforeJustin was still embroiled in his old Selena drama. In anyone's book, he moved on pretty quick.

And, as you'd probably expect...

Selena was nowhere to be seen among the guests.

It's awkward enough to consider having an ex as a wedding guest - let alone one who had been dating the groom up until months before the ceremony.

Gomez kept a composed silence on the topic.

But when she dropped her brand new single, let's just say fans began reading into the lyrics.

It seems to fans - the message of the song is clear.

Gomez wrote on her Vevo, "This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself."

With lyrics like "You turned me down, and now it's showing / In two months you replaced us / Like it was easy / Made me think I deserved it / In the thick of healing, yeah"...

It seems hard to deny Gomez is referencing the new Biebers.

And following on from this, Selena unveiled a very controversial new tattoo.

She's no stranger to an inking - but this one might be here most out-there yet.

Because people noticed something ...

And the Justin and Selena conspiracy theorists came out in full force.

She posted about the tatt on her Insta.

And, as ever, fans could not stop talking about Justin!

Many pointed this out.

There's another famous neck tattoo enthusiast out there - Bieber himself!

And that's not all.

Selena's tatt reads, "Rare," which is the name of her album.

... Aka the album that's basically about Justin Bieber.

What do you think? A message to Bieber? Or fans reading too much into things?

Well, now fans have even more to talk about.

Because the star has just lost her big title.

Up until now, Gomez was very much the queen of Instagram.

Having more followers than any other women on the platform!

But now she's lost her crown.


At the time of writing, Gomez boasts a massive 173,810,165 followers!

But she's been beaten...

By none other than Ariana Grande, who now has 181,459,075 followers.


But the reason for this might be to do with Gomez posting a lot less than she did before...

A source revealed last year that Gomez has made a conscious decision to post very rarely on her account. "She isn't going to be posting much on social because she is more aware of how social takes a toll on her mental health, but she will be updating her fans once in a while."

Gomez also talked about how she doesn't care about the title, during an Instagram Live in September last year...

"Numbers don't matter," she said. "None of this matters. I don't care how many followers I have. I don't. It's insane so many people are obsessed. Like, chill out."

Despite losing her ranking, Gomez did set another record this month...

Her post of her friend's bachelorette party is now the 4th most liked photo ever posted on the platform, with over 14.4 million likes.

I wonder if anyone will beat Ariana...

Or will she be at the top forever?
