Here’s a brief list of the top 5 most popular celebrities on Instagram, their follower count, and where you might know them from!
#5 – Taylor Swift

Taylor has accumulated over 161 million followers on Instagram.
Although the “Lover” crooner deleted her social media profile during her “Reputation” phase back in 2017, she’s back showing her “Style” with silly bear costumes, parties with friends, and, of course, her cats.
#4 – Justin Bieber
Bieber has accumulated over 176 million followers on Instagram.

Although the “7 Rings” singer was a hit even before “Thank U, Next” became a viral sensation, she recently made headlines when she revealed that she had a surprise wedding with real estate developer Dalton Gomez last month.
