Pop star Selena Gomez has become the most followed celebrity on the photo-sharing site Instagram.

Gomez's Instagram account became the first to hit the 100 million follower mark this week.

The Hands To Myself and Same Old Love singer now tops such fellow celebrity Instagram users as Taylor Swift (91.4m), Beyonce (85.3m), Ariana Grande (85m) and Kim Kardashian West (83.6m).

The last photo she posted was an image of her on stage six weeks ago. Gomez said in a statement last month that she is taking a break from the spotlight to deal with anxiety, panic attacks and depression stemming from her battle with lupus.
