Pop star Selena Gomez has just broken a major social media record – and she didn’t even lift a finger to do it.

The singer and actress has become the first person ever to hit the 100 million follower mark on Instagram, thanks largely to a campaign by her fans to get her to the top of the Instagram mountain.

Gomez hasn’t actually posted anything on Instagram since cancelling the remainder of her Revival tour last month to deal with a lupus diagnosis.

The social media milestone means Gomez is comfortably ahead in terms of followers of other Instagram queens including Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian.

We wouldn’t be too surprised if Taylor Swift and co are fiendishly coming up with ideas to dethrone Gomez from this social media milestone as we speak.

They might have some way to go to beat her popularity, though. Gomez also boasts the record for the most-liked Instagram post.

The below photo of her sipping on a Coca-Cola racked up an astonishing 5.6 million likes when she posted it earlier this year.

when your lyrics are on the bottle 😛 #ad
