Shakira is officially the most liked person on Facebook after becoming the first person ever to reach 100 million likes!
The superstar hit the staggering social media milestone yesterday and was delighted with the news.
“I am honoured and humbled about reaching this milestone,” the 37-year-old Colombian singer said. “Social media and specifically Facebook has helped myself and other artists bridge the gap between the stage and the audience.”
To mark her achievement, Shakira posted a video of her most important Facebook moments since joining the social network in 2008. The video includes pictures of her album covers, her baby bump and glimpses of her son, Milan.
She also posted a video thanking fans for their support.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was clearly impressed with Shakira’s popularity, writing “‘Congrats!” in a comment on her page. He added, “What an amazing milestone for an amazing person.”
The only other page to have more likes than Shakira is Facebook’s own brand page.
Shakira has been in the spotlight recently thanks to her official video for her new World Cup 2014 song.
Congrats Shakira! It must be lovely to be so well liked, and we’re not jealous AT all!
