Shakira Trumps Taylor Swift, Rihanna, & More For Facebook Guinness Record

Shakira‘s hips don’t lie and, as the 2015 Guinness Book of World records indicates, numbers don’t either.

Shortly after reports revealed Kim Kardashian‘s crowning as the “Queen of Instagram,” the annual publication has unveiled its new set of records, one of which sees the Colombian crooner continue to dominate female counterparts Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Beyonce, and more to be Facebook’s potentate.

In 2014 the songstress set the record for being the first person to cross the 100 million follower threshold on the social media network, making her the most “liked” person on the planet.  Now, find out where her number sits (as of time reporting):


Cristiano Ronaldo follows, with 102,782,118 likes. According to Guinness, only two Facebook pages have more “likes” than Shakira’s: Facebook for Every Phone (547,111,981) and Facebook itself (169,250,505). – source

    • Slay my cookie please September 10, 2015

      • When RIHSUS Says Yes… September 10, 2015

        #mouthdrops If I haven’t seen a wig snatched so hard, it definitely happened right here.

      • #JACKIE September 10, 2015

        But not even Rihogre could give her a hit. Bye

    • rosy September 10, 2015

      I know who f****** cares about Facebook anymore Kim k sold two book with all those followers their clothes could not save sears from closing so Sam gtfoh with this s*** Facebook ain’t relevant no more all those followers are voyeurs

  2. Truthtea September 10, 2015

    Excuse me but how many copies has Jackie sold? Ciara is just as irrelevant and her last successful album was 10 years ago. #BOOM

    • #JACKIE September 10, 2015

      Album sales don’t equal relevance. Ciara is very much more relevant than shakira. Her brand is on fleek while shakira….she’s breathing 🙂

  3. Slay my cookie please September 10, 2015

    Taylor swift is now the new queen of Instagram

  4. Arianator Barb September 10, 2015

    Really? Shakira? I don’t get it but congrats I guess

  5. BeyRihLiyah September 10, 2015

    Why is this news worthy who cares about facebook likes

  6. Lake Erie September 10, 2015

    LMAO! ! Some of yal ain’t shyt, smh. Let it had been yal fave, yal’d be taging, dragging and retweeting the hell out of this post. Anyways, Congratulations ShaKira!

  7. Here to kill September 10, 2015

    Sha what now?

  8. Fancy BISH September 10, 2015

    Look, ya’ll know I’m not the biggest Rihanna fan, but let’s keep it ALL the way real…Shakira ain’t trumpin’ shiiit…she need to go find Wyclef Jean…lol

  9. Tyler Makiavelli September 10, 2015

    Facebook is still a thing??? Lol

  10. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 10, 2015

    Many of you all let media bought headlines dictate an artist’s relevance. Yes, many of your faves are huge in the US and Western Europe, but that does not equal international dominance where people from Laos to Bostwana know you. Whether you like her not, Shakira is THE biggest international pop star of the 21st century. Check out her numbers; she will sell out a stadium in 3rd world country in seconds!

    • Tyler Makiavelli September 10, 2015

      Maybe back in 2007 but not now. Oral Fixation was her highest grossing world tour brining in 200 mill….

    • Fancy BISH September 10, 2015

      I don’t want to come across rude, but seriously SHOW THEM RECEIPTS…her wikipedia page says 70 million albums and 125 million singles…honey, that’s a DAMN LIE…her biggest song sold 13 million singles…ain’t NOTHING ELSE she recorded comes close to that number of singles sold…her first album sold 1,200 copies…kii…her second album flopped too….where the hell is 195 MILLION RECORDS AT? Buried with that E.T. video game in the desert somewhere I guess…lol

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 10, 2015

        Just like her hips, her numbers don’t lie! Again like I said, go do some research. She is a powerhouse of a brand who’s truly international; not just popular because mainstream continually talks about you on Good Morning America does not mean the entire world actually likes you…

  11. Tamartian Stan! K. Michelle who? I don’t know her! September 10, 2015

    Facebook likes? Kii! How about getting the Colombian goat to yodel her way to a platinum album? She hasn’t seen one of those in years! The general public is over her and if she want’s another hit she better call up Rih again and beg for a feature. As far as I’m concerned, her “Oral Fixation” (which sounds very convenient as to what she needs right now) days of slaying a b**** bald are done. And I don’t give af about cheesy ass YouTube views. Selling albums and singles matters, Guinness World Records! Tell her to sell albums!

  12. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 10, 2015

    Let’s take a moment to recognize miss Rihanna SHIITTTTIIINNNGGG on the rest of y’all faves #ThatReign

  13. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 10, 2015

    I’m not even gonna lie. That “Cant Remember to Forget You” video was everything slayage and more. I often revisit it. It actually made me like the song too, and when Rih and Shaki whined those Caribbean and Latin hips up on that wall at the same time, I almkst died! Those women know how to arch those backs like nothing!

  14. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 10, 2015

    To be honest, I’m here for another collab with her and Rih.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 10, 2015

      ME TOOOOO! CRTFY was just a basic song that Rih should’ve never been on; I don’t know who on Shak’s camp thought that was a good move. If anything, Rih should’ve been on Dare. But whatever the case may be, they need to do something again. Oooh imagine if they did a World Cup song together…The slayage!

  15. Navy Gravy September 10, 2015

    All those artists with all those likes and only one album went platinum this year? I think these ppl are doing some things wrong smh

  16. shakira stan September 10, 2015

    The ultimate drag is seeing a ciara fan speak of relevancy. …when all the men in hippop have f***** the b**** and she still can’t get a platinum album …you guys are reaching .

  17. andres September 11, 2015

    Love shakira and ignoring all negative comments. And ppl always have to bring up ciara jezzzz she is underrated and has talent. Tired of hearing negativity everywhere.
