Selena Gomez Becomes First Instagram User to Reach 100 Million Followers

Though Selena hasn't posted any new images for a month, her followers started an online campaign so she could reach the milestone.

Selena Gomez is currently taking a break from social media and the spotlight, but Selenators never sleep.

For proof, look at Gomez's Instagram account, which just became the first one ever to hit the 100 million follower mark, thanks to a campaign by fans to put her over the top.

Though Selena hasn't posted any new images since a photo from her now-canceled Revival Tour, the high score puts her above such fellow Instagram queens as Taylor Swift (91.4 million), Beyonce (85.3 million), Ariana Grande (85 million) and even Kim Kardashian West (83.6 million). 

Gomez canceled the remainder of her Revival Tour to deal with what she said was Lupus-related depression, which also spurred her social media holiday. She was already the top Insta celeb, but when Selenators saw she was near the 100 million mark they started the #SelenaBreakTheInternet hashtag to get her over the hump.
