Selena Gomez celebrated her 26th birthday over the weekend;
Whilst it looks like the singer had a lot of fun at the weekend, with a private yacht party involved; later came an extra special reason to celebrate the day…
Gomez broke another Instagram record! She already is the most followed account on the whole platform, with a total of 135 million followers. However, following her birthday party, she uploaded some of the photos depicting her day.
Within 13 minutes Selena’s photos had broken an Instagram record, held previously by Beyonce for over a year.
What was the record?
The fastest Instagram post to get 1 million likes
“Another year down… Thank you all for the bday love, I couldn’t be more appreciative of you and my best friends for celebrating with me. I love you guys like crazy! God bless!”
It only took 13 minutes for the post to hit 1 million likes on the app. Which, so we’re told by Elle Magazine, is the quickest time taken for a single post to hit 1 million in the entire history of the Instagram platform.
This record was previously held by Beyoncé; we all remember the day when she finally showed the world newborn twins Rumi and Sir.
Beyonce no longer holds the record, but she’s still amassed more likes on her own post than Selena’s, with 10.3 million likes, compared to Gomez’s 9.1 million so far.

Gomez has been through a lot in the past year, with constant questions about her break up with Justin Bieber; not to mention her kidney issues, which resulted in a kidney transplant from one of her close friends.
We’re happy she was able to celebrate her birthday in style and break a social media record to add the icing on the cake. Selena has an amazing future ahead of her in the next few years to come.
