It's official: Ariana Grande has overtaken Selena Gomez as the world's most followed woman on Instagram. The figures are SO tight though; Ari now has 146,337,497 and Selena is slightly behind with  146,289,115.

Unfortunately for Thank U Next fans, Cristiano Ronaldo is still the most followed person, with 155 million followers compared to the Sweetener singer's 146 million.

However, considering everything Ms Grande has achieved this year, we believe she can gain the nine million needed in no time.

Billboard are claiming that Ariana gained a huge 13 million followers on the social media site over the last four months, coinciding with the release of her record breaking albums Sweetener and Thank U, Next.

Weirdly, it also comes at the same time as her break-up from former fiancé Pete Davidson in October. The pair made the headlines after the split, coming only five months after their engagements and six months after they began dating.

It was never going to end well, was it? Ari also had a turbulent time with the overdose and subsequent death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

More recently, she won the Best Pop Album Grammy award, and became the first solo artist to hold the top three Billboard Hot 100 singles (7 Rings, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and Thank U, Next), and hold the number one album spot at the same time.

Her online wars with the likes of Grammy producers who insulted her (how dare they??) and Piers Morgan has also drawn attention to her accounts.

Meanwhile, singer and actress Selena Gomez has lost followers after taking a four-month break from social media in September after entering a treatment facility for her mental health.

She required medical help with her anxiety and depression, saying in a video at the time;

"As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given."

"Kindness and encouragement only for a bit. Just remember: negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings," she said. 

Come on lads, lets dethrone Cristiano Ronaldo. Ari's Instagram game is far stronger…Just sayin'

Nicki Minaj has come out in support of Ariana Grande after her argument with Grammy producer led to her cancelling her performance and appearance at the awards.

Minaj has blasted producer Ken Ehrlich for "bullying her for seven years" just days after the Thank U, Next singer called him out for "lying" about her.

The Queen rapper's comments come after she pulled out of a BET Experience performance when the network made fun of her for losing out to Cardi B at the awards.

She wrote on Twitter; "I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. Grammy producer Ken. I was bullied into staying quiet for seven years out of fear, but I’ll tell my fans the real on the next episode of #QueenRadio, they deserve the truth."

The Good Form rapper has not won a Grammy in her 16-year music career, which is a big surprise considering how successful she's been as a female rapper in a typically male business.

Sex and relationship blogger, Oloni, questioned her lack of accolades, saying; "Nicki Minaj has been at the top of her game for way too long to not have had a Grammy. I don’t know what white man from the boards she pissed off."

Minaj responded by thanking her fans: "Whether I read it or not, I felt it. From the bottom of my heart. I love you so much. So so so so much. Stay tuned."

Ariana also put Ehrlich on blast last week after there was a disagreement over her song choice. On Thursday the star spoke out about the situation, calling out Ehrlich for "lying" about her to the Associated Press.

He said; “As it turned out when we finally got the point where we thought maybe it would work, she felt it was too late for her to pull something together for sure. And it’s too bad. She’s a great artist. And I’d love to get her in the show this year.”

Ari wasn't too pleased:

She called bullsh*t on his statements, responding on Twitter;

"I offered three different songs. It’s about collaboration. It’s about feeling supported. It’s about art and honesty. Not politics. Mot doing favours or playing games. It’'s just a game."

"I’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me," she concluded, basically saying Thank U, Next. "Passed a Grammy’s bus with my face on it typing those." SASS KWEEN.

She later posted; "Hope that helps everyone understand my decision. ‘I am still grateful for the acknowledgement this year." She went on to win Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.

Nicki is 100 percent team Ariana, that's for sure.
