The year 2019 is still young, but a couple months in Instagram Time can feel like eons (so many selfies, so little time). Whether they have the most compelling feeds or just the most loyal fandoms, the celebrities with the biggest Instagram followings say a lot about the year in pop culture so far—whose feeds we're thirsty to scroll though for endless glam shots and what makes us hit that "like" button.

2017 was a rough year for Grande after the Manchester bombing at her concert, though she continues to remain on the list of top 10 most-followed with frequent vacation selfies and photos with boyfriend Mac Miller. Ironically, she hasn't posted any new Instagrams yet this year.

Ronaldo continuously has a solid yearof action shots, chiseled shirtless portraits, and "get you a guy who can do both" suit and tie poses: the bread and butter. And it's paid off: he's still the No. 1 most followed guy on Instagram, moving from his post as sixth most popular to second most popular overall.

1. Selena Gomez: 133 million followers
Birth Name: Selena Marie Gómez
Age: 26, born 22 July 1992

For a young star who has historically had a difficult past with social media—taking hiatuses for mental health reasons—Selena Gomez has maintained the most loyal stream of followers on Instagram, topping the list again this year. Whether it's the rare romantic selfie with now ex Abel Tesfaye AKA The Weeknd or a photo of her snacking on pizza post-performance, she continues to give her fans adorable sneak peeks into her private life—and a ton of fashion inspo as the brand ambassador of Coach.

Honorable Mention: Kendall Jenner: 87.6 million followers

Age: 23, born 3 November 1995
Born and residing in:  United States
Height: 5' 9"

It wouldn't feel right if we left Jenner off the list—just 2.1 million followers short from Neymar Jr. After her whole Pepsi fiasco last year, it took fans a while to recover from the controversial ad, but they're clearly still very much a fan of the model.
