Grande has beaten Back to You hit maker Selena Gomez to become the most followed woman on Instagram.

The 25-year-old singer is the most followed woman on Instagram, accumulating 146,311,467 followers, passing Selena Gomez (146,274,798) as the most followed female on the social media platform, according to Billboard.

Grande posts multiple times a day via Instagram proper and its stories feature, sharing behind-the-scenes looks at her music videos, photos of her pets, and selfies.

She also took to Twitter today, where she has another 61 million followers, to announce that she will be the headlining act of Manchester Pride.

She is returning to Manchester, nearly two years after a suicide bomber killed 22 attendees at her concert in May 2017. The Manchester Pride concert will take place on August 25, including Years & Years, Bananarama and Kim Petras.

Grande has also released a four-part docu-series called Dangerous Woman Diaries to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the One Love Manchester benefit concert and her Dangerous Woman tour. The series released last November.
