Selena Gomez racks up millions of likes in minutes with latest Instagram selfie

Reigning Instagram queen Selena Gomez has racked up millions of likes in a matter of minutes for her latest selfie.

The 30-year-old former Disney Channel star has been in and out of headlines during the past few months, predominantly due to her apparent online feud with Hailey Bieber, 26.

For those who are unaware, fans of both stars have claimed that Hailey and Selena have been taking shots at each other – which started when Bieber and friend Kylie Jenner seemed to taunt Gomez over her eyebrows. Both Bieber and Jenner denied their posts had anything to do with Gomez.

Fan theories only escalated when Gomez announced that she would be taking a break from TikTok, stating on a TikTok Live: “I’m going to be taking a second from social media because this is a little silly. I’m 30 and am too old for this. But I love you so much and I’ll see you guys sooner than later. I’m just gonna take a break from everything.”

Then, amid the drama, Gomez was then spotted out and about with former One Directioner, Zayn Malik. The pair had been dining at a swanky restaurant in New York in late March, where they were apparently seen canoodling and getting rather intimate, according to Sky News.

Aside from the rumored internet feuds – and potential new love interest – Gomez garnered the support of millions of her fans in her latest Instagram post, which was a selfie of the red lipstick-wearing ‘Good For You’ singer with her hair slicked back into a bun and sporting a white tank top.

The actress – who has been appearing in the Disney+ series Only Murders In The Building alongside Steve Martin and Martin Short – did, however, make the pic a little bit flirty, having taken the image from below so her chest was rather prominent.

Many of the comments were focused on Malik and Bieber, with one person writing: “zayn baby, please don’t open Instagram.”

And the flame emojis and compliments just kept coming:

In fact, after racking hundreds of thousands of likes in minutes, the total currently stands just shy of 8 million likes in less than 8 hours. Pretty darn impressive.

Regardless of the commentary, there’s no denying that Gomez has rightfully earned her place as the most followed woman on Instagram.

Gomez herself had been linked to several other celebrities since breaking up with Justin Bieber – who is married to her apparent rival, Hailey, which is probably why the internet keeps constantly pitting the two women against each other – for the final time in 2018 – including Drew Taggart from The Chainsmokers.

As for Malik, he was last publicly linked to 27-year-old supermodel Gigi Hadid, with whom he shares two-year-old daughter Khai. Malik and Hadid split in 2021 after the British singer was reportedly physically violent towards Hadid’s mother, Yolanda. He was sentenced to 360 days probation by a Pennsylvania court, BBC News detailed at the time.
