Kim Kardashian Is the Most Followed Person on Instagram Much to Beyonce's Dismay

kim kardashianWell, it's official. Kim Kardashian is the reigning Queen of Instagram. This week, Kim surpassed Beyoncé as the most followed person on Instagram. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star boasts an impressive 44,005,604 followers, while Bey lags behind with a paltry 43,935,64. Come on, Bey. Get it together. 


It actually was somewhat surprising that Beyoncé was at one point the most followed person on the social media app to begin with. I mean, Beyoncé is a queen and everybody knows it, but the pop star doesn't post to Instagram half as much as Kim. In fact, at the time of writing this, Beyoncé's last post was three days ago. Kim, on the other hand, went to dinner last night and there are three photos on her 'gram from the momentous occasion.

Also, as Tech Insider points out, in addition to posting far more frequently than Beyoncé, Kim's captions are significantly longer and more personal. While I love Beyoncé's gorgeous Instagram feed, I definitely can't argue with that. As ridiculous as it sounds, you get the sense that you "know" Kim when you read her Instagram captions. With Beyoncé's, it's sort of like you're looking at a magazine. One thing both ladies have in common, though, is the gorgeous photos they post of their sweet daughters. Keep those coming, please!

For anyone out there who's ever said that Kim Kardashian hasn't ever done anything of substance, let this be a message. Beating Beyoncé -- even if it's just at Instagram -- is no easy feat.
