Peasants, it’s time to get on bended knee and bow to your new Instagram overlord. Late last month, Kim Kardashian was announced as the most followed celebrity on Instagram, beating out Beyoncé for what is likely the first and only time in her life. But the reality TV star barely had time to bask in the glory, now that her crown has been effectively snatched by newly-minted feminist Taylor Swift.
The singer currently boasts 45.6 million followers on Instagram, while Kardashian remains at a steady 45.5. Queen Bey still stands at 45 million followers, which is more than enough. Taylor Swift is one of the most popular celebrities out there, so it’s no surprise that her Instagram page would reflect that. Besides, what red-blooded human being doesn’t like browsing through images of a girl who is best friends with almost every celebrity that ever walked the earth, including Jesus Christ and the Loch Ness Monster?
