Kim Kardashian has a lot of Instagram followers — 42 million to be exact. Mrs Kardashian West celebrated the milestone by posting a titillating selfie that focused on her lips, neck, cleavage, and not much else. You can check out that slightly racy photo by heading to Kim’s Instagram.
Her current follower tally makes Kim Kardashian one of the most popular celebrities on the social media app, Us Magazine reports. It means that if her Instagram followers were a country, it would be the 33rd largest in the world, with a larger population than Algeria, a country with one of the biggest populations in the Muslim world.
She doesn’t have the biggest Instagram following, though. She’s currently trailing Beyonce’s Instagram follower count. The “Queen Bey” currently has 42.6 million Instagram followers. Only one Instagram account eclipses both Kim’s and Beyonce’s and that’s Instagram itself. The app’s account has close to one billion followers, close to Mrs. Carter’s and Mrs. Kardashian-West’s combined. It’s extremely likely that Kim will surpass Beyonce pretty soon.
In February, Kim celebrated reaching 27 million Instagram followers, the Daily Mail reports. This means that her Instagram account grew by 19 million followers between then and now. Kim’s Instagram is also more current. Her last photo was posted 14 hours ago as of this writing. On the other hand, Beyonce’s last Instagram post was six weeks ago.
Kim Kardashian’s Instagram account has been making news lately for other reasons. Kim recently posted the first photo of Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner together.
She also posed with democratic presidential hopeful and former First Lady Hillary Clinton on August 6. Kim’s husband, Kanye West, was also in the shot.
“I got my selfie!!! I really loved hearing her speak & hearing her goals for our country! #HillaryForPresident,” Kardashian wrote in the caption.
Kim Kardashian’s sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, are also listed in the top 10 followed Instagram accounts. Kylie Jenner has 30.1 million followers, while Kendall Jenner has 33.9 million Instagram followers. Khloe Kardashian falls just a little short of the top 10 most followed list with a still respectable 29.1 million followers.
Kim and her sisters have been raising lots of eyebrows with their Instagram posts recently. Kim and Kourtney recently posted selfies while clad in skin-tight latex outfits, dark vampy makeup and black wigs with bangs.
“Banger sisters,” Kim captioned the photo.
The looks may have been all a part of birthday celebrations for Kylie Jenner, who turns 18 on August 10, People reports. Earlier on Saturday, Kylie posted a photo of her living room, in front of the large fireplace at her Calabasas home.
“The calm before the storm,” Kylie wrote in the caption.
The photo features a black skull on a coffee table, which seems to match the theme of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian’s vampy outfits.
