Singer/designer/actress/social media queen Selena Gomez just lost her seriously impressive Instagram title to soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, who you might remember from those Giorgio Armani underwear ads if you're not a sports fan.

Gomez, 26, overtook Ariana Grande two years ago in a list which is dominated by stateside entertainment stars.

But now, she has lost that status to none other than Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo who, at this point in time, boasts almost 20K more followers than the singer.

The development comes just months after he swapped Real Madrid for Juventus in a deal worth €100 million (£88.93m/$114m). The pro athlete now sits at 144,352,910 followers while Gomez has 144,325,743 followers. While Selena, 25, also has 144 million followers, the breakdown goes a little bit more in depth. Last month, she announced to her army of fans that she had made a decision to take a step back from social media in order to take better care of herself.

'Taking a social media break.

Negative comments have driven Selena away from Instagram in recent weeks, with the star commenting, 'As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Obvi, ' she wrote at the time.
