Selena Gomez Just Broke An Instagram Record With One Photo

This image of Selena Gomez is now the most liked photograph on Instagram.

when your lyrics are on the bottle ?

The lyrics on the bottle are from the Share a Coke and a Song campaign Coca-Cola had with Gomez, who, with over 89.6 million followers, is also the most popular person on Instagram. The photo features all the hallmarks of a classic pin up style photo, amazing hair, vibrant colors… and a soda.

So what makes that photo so special compared to, say, this one:

s'mores

Maybe I’m biased because I love s’mores, but this photo is seriously underrated. I mean, it’s no slouch in the likes department, but it’s no where near four million and counting likes. C’mon people, s’mores! And Gomez. But S’MORES!

And then there’s this one, featuring more food!

In case you’re wondering, Gomez insists she did not rent out a grocery store just to get this shot.

When looking for the next photo, Gomez says, “I try to find a good balance of just being 100 percent myself and knowing when to post a really good selfie with good lighting.”

Dated nearly three years ago, this is one of the earliest selfies posted to Gomez’s Instagram account. Back then, she averaged around 500-thousand likes per photo.

The previous most liked photograph on Instagram came from Justin Bieber’s account, featuring, you guessed it, Selena Gomez.

With over 3.7 millions likes, even a blurry photo of Selena Gomez gets amazing love from fans.

And this one:

Turns out I’m not the only person who likes s’mores.

In case you were wondering, this is the most popular Tarsier on Instagram.

@FransLanting Tarsiers have been called dawn monkeys. They are believed to be living links to a branch of early primates who evolved in the rainforests of Southeast Asia some 50 million years ago. Tarsiers use their huge eyes to hunt for insects in the dark understory of the Borneo night. Like all primates, they do not possess reflective structures in the backs of their eyes, which boost night vision for other nocturnal creatures such as cats. To make up for this deficiency, tarsiers evolved the largest eyes of any living primate. The size of a tarsier’s eyeball equals the size of its brain. Tarsiers are small enough to fit in a human hand, and with their giant ears and eyes, they seem to live in a constant state of sensory overkill, wearing expressions that seem to vacillate between outrage and surprise. I photographed this tiny primate on assignment for @natgeo. To see who else lives in the amazing forests of Borneo, #Followme @FransLanting. @natgeo @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @natgeotravel #Borneo #Primate #Rainforest #Tarsier

The tarsier is not friends with Gomez, though we assume they’d get along famously if they were ever to meet.

Aside from pics, Selena Gomez is known to post the occasional video, like this one:

9 Things You Should Never Say To Latinos Who Simply Aren’t Religious

Above Papi’s punishments and Mom’s mal genio, there was always the fear of God. The deal was pretty simple: If you behaved well, you’d wind up in heaven. If you misbehaved, you’d burn in hell.

Pero what happened to those who grew up in a Latino household and didn’t believe in any particular religion? They’d most likely hear some of these comments:

<Abuelita voice> “Vas a arder en el infierno.”

If you sin, you can always buy yourself back into God’s good grace if you confess. But, as far as abuela is concerned, there is no saving your soul if you deny Dios’ mere existence altogether.

“You’re not part of this family.”

I mean you still are, sort of, but it feels like EVERYONE from abuelo to los primos is looking down on you for not saying grace before dinner.

“Te envidio.”

ENVY

Even though los primos have to pretend to be as into religion as abuelita and las tías, they secretly envy the fact that you never again have to wake up early on Sundays to attend mass.

“You’re a disgrace.”

PENA

Mami avoids the topic altogether with her amigas, but she still reminds you how much shame you put in the family every chance she gets. It’s not a good feeling, to say the least.

“¿Cómo que no estás bautizada?”

Luckily, second generation atheists can blame the whole thing on their parents. #ProTip

“How are you ever going to get married?”

roll eyes

It’s exhausting trying to get people to wrap their minds around the concept of non-religious weddings. (Do they even know the religious ceremony does not constitute a legal binding marriage? #Facts)

“If you don’t believe in God, ¿en qué crees?”

ENQUE CREES

Hmm, more tangible things, like, you know… dogs, cats and those sort of things. Pizza?

“Aren’t you afraid God’s going to punish you?”

mm

As much as I fear my childhood imaginary friend is mad at me for ditching him for real amigos… What part of “I don’t believe in that” do people not understand?

“It’s just a rebellious phase; you’ll grow out of it.”

Are you growing out of your beliefs any time soon? No, right? Same deal for us.
