Taylor Swift dethroned Kim Kardashian on Tuesday to become the most followed person on Instagram. Swift now boasts 45.5 million followers compared to Kardashian’s 45.4 million.

As Gossip Cop reported, Kardashian claimed the Instagram record for most followers fewer than two weeks ago when she surpassed original title holder Beyonce. But the reality star’s victory was short lived as Swift is now a few thousand followers ahead of her.

Kardashian and Beyonce’s Instagram popularity is largely due to the two superstars posting many personal photos of themselves and their families. But Swift typically posts photos of herself with her celebrity friends, backstage at her concerts, and of course, with her beloved pet cats.

Other celebrities included on the top 10 list of people with the most Instagram followers are Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and Nicki Minaj. Just outside the top 10 is Katy Perry.

But with Swift in the lead by only a thousand followers, it remains to be seen how long the ranking will remain as it is. Do you think Kardashian or Beyonce can reclaim the honor or will Swift hold onto the title? Tell Gossip Cop below.
