But don’t despair, Kim fans! The two stars are separated by barely 40,000 or so followers. Taylor currently claims 45,522,135 cat and sweater-obsessed fans, while Kim clocks in at a highly respectable 45,479,141, according to SocialBlade. Taylor may have taken the edge this weekend when she Instagrammed a photo of herself wearing a sweater knitted by a fan. (Perhaps the surge could be attributed to a surge of excited knitters, taking over Taylor’s follows?)
Rounding out the top five are Beyoncé with 45,077,505, Selena Gomez with 43,163,698, and Ariana Grande with 42,677,226. Damn, that’s a lot of people following celebrities on Instagram.
