Selena Gomez was previously the number two most-followed celebrity on Instagram, and the most-followed woman on the platform.
Gomez was Instagram's most followed user up until the end of October when football star, Cristiano Ronaldo took her top spot.
The Rock, Kim Kardashian West, Kylie Jenner, Beyonce, and Talyor Swift make up the top 10.
The "Wolves" singer also claimed she doesn't "have the damn app on my phone", so doesn't understand how she has so many followers - or why people care. As of now, Grande has 146,335,231 followers, while Gomez has 146,288,236 followers on Instagram.
The 25-year-old communicates with her army of fans on Instagram and Twitter, using the platforms to promote her latest music. On the other hand, Grande has more posts and stories than Gomez.
