Selena Gomez breaks major Instagram record and pays tribute to her fans
On Friday, the 30-year-old reached an incredible 400 million followers on Instagram.
Gomez expressed her gratitude for the historic follower count with a sweet homage to her dedicated fans.
In her latest post, she shared a slideshow of photos with her fans with the caption, "Wishing I could hug all 400 million of you."
In addition to becoming the woman with the most Instagram followers, she is also now also the most-followed actor and singer on the app.
Despite her success on Instagram, Gomez has also been candid about the challenges that social media has posed for her.
Selena Gomez dishes on the downside of social media
Gomez previously took an extended break from running her own Instagram page, revealing in 2019 that she had her assistant post things for her after she deleted the app from her phone.
In a recent interview, the Disney alum admitted that she was "constantly" crying and suffering from bouts of anxiety related to social media.
She called the choice to leave "the best decision" for her mental health.
Thankfully, it looks like Gomez has found a way to manage her mental health while also taking back the reins of her account. And it seems to have paid off in popularity.
