Kim Kardashian Defeats Beyonce, Becomes Most Popular On Instagram

Kim Kardashian is ahead of Beyonce in popularity on Instagram. She is now the most popular person on the picture sharing app with 44 million followers, ahead of the competitor by more than 70,000 acolytes.

The 34-year-old TV reality star gained more than 2 million disciples in only two weeks time. She was ranked then as number two with 42 million followers.

Kim had 27 million followers earlier in February this year and this mean in the span of just 7 months she gained 17 million more followers. If she keeps clawing in the followers, she may one day overtake the combine total of her and Beyonce of today on the platform.

If the Instagram account of Kim were a country, it would be about a million ahead of Argentina and close to Ukraine.

One of the reasons for her immense popularity on Instagram may be her racy pictures that she keeps on posting. In fact her 27 million milestone in February was a result of her infamous ‘belfie’ shot. With the 42 million mark some fourteen days ago the star treated her followers with a cleavage selfie.

Her younger half sisters Kylie and Kendall too are doing well in gaining popularity on the platform and both are in the top 10 list. Kylie Jenner holds the number eight slot and Khloe Kardashian has just stepped in at number 10.
