For, the entertainer has been dethroned on the social media platform.

Who did it? Who dared to outperform the stage-blazing superstar?

Meet the new Queen of the ‘gram below…


It’s the Reality TV royal Kim Kardashian.

Beyonce had owned the crown thanks to 43,935,648 followers but found herself forced to claim the position of #2 when Kim’s follower count surpassed hers to lock lips with the 44,005,604 mark.

Peep the current Top Ten below…

    Only by a few thousand, the Thotashians pay for followers anyway!

    • Lana Del Fan *HONEYMOON COMING SOON* August 25, 2015

      Honesty, it’s a sad world we live in when how many random people follow you is an accomplishment. And to add injury to insult, the most followed person is a p*** star ???????????????????? I caaaaant even.

    • You tried August 25, 2015

      Blah???? This post lmao #THIRST and mention how bey has 0ver 43mill followers but she follows 0! No one can share that feat on FB! On here comes the basic delusional Navy saying their fav got kicked off INSTA two years ago and been back for a year and still can’t reach 30mill follows even with NUDE pics !! Stop it.. She’s tired .. Just google her and her v***** is all over the Internet.. Who needs to follow her on Insta

    • Kayla C August 25, 2015

      Do you f@gz ever get tired of worshipping beyonce? Like why is it that gays seem to have the most time devoted to Stan, like get a life please.

  2. african music lover August 25, 2015

    I thought it was Taylor….well congrats Kim,i dont know what you r famous for but do ur thing mama,So Rihanna is not on Instagram because she is usually huge on social media?

    • Sugar&Spice August 25, 2015

      Rihanna has 24.9m followers on IG.

      • african music lover August 25, 2015

        ohh! I see,thnx

    • Lana Del Fan *HONEYMOON COMING SOON* August 25, 2015

      Rihanna would’ve had more than Beyonc eat this point but remember her page was taken down for like 3 months due to risqué pictures. Before they were taken down, she was in the lead

      • Cupid August 25, 2015

        And now she’s no longer as active on IG… I doubt she’ll catch up

  3. Theman August 25, 2015

    This is irrelevant. What does Kim do to have that many followers? She’s beautiful. But…. For people like Kim this is a highlight, because, stuff like this helps her brand. It’s all about fame & fortune with them. Taylor may come through or Ariana & it’ll flip. Maybe. As for musicians, if these likes don’t help your singles/album sales then they’re pointless..

  4. Mark111 /.\ August 25, 2015


  5. Legend B August 25, 2015

    I thought it was Taylor too. Well The Queen will return back to #1 after she release her Epic in the fall biitches kii kii. Oh and RIP Baby Girl!!!! We Miss You!!!!!!

  6. NickisHalloweenCostume2013 August 25, 2015

    Bey look white af in that pic

    • NickisHalloweenCostume2013 August 25, 2015

      Except for those gorgeous s*** legs

  7. blue August 25, 2015

    im sure the exact number matters more to kim then bey, for actual celebs(bey, taylor), its more about having the following then how big it is compared to someone else.

  8. RihannaIsMadonna August 25, 2015

    Haaaaa! I remember the #Beyhive rubbing this on our faces, wipe that egg off y’all faces kiii

    • african music lover August 25, 2015

      I think they were just returning a favour because the navy was a bit cocky when Rihanna was the most followed before her account being taken off.

    • Tyler Makivelli August 25, 2015

      Rihannas not even in the top 10

      • J-Dog August 25, 2015

        Rihanna was number until her page got deviated a couple months ago

    • Legend B August 25, 2015

      The Hive dont care about Intragram followers because The Queen can sell albums, meanwhile R**** twit her Cuunts about her albums and still cant sell albums ????????????????

  9. Stephy August 25, 2015

    Beyoncé will surpass her in the near future.

  10. Banks’ #1 Fan. Chile, go buy Goddess right now! August 25, 2015

    Ooh, not the amateur pornstar that can’t suck a d*** to save her life beating the queen of questionable songwriting and producing credits. Where’s the “bi-racial model with blue eyes” to comment when you need it to clean up the ness that is sure to be this post. Oh well! It’s probably too busy preparing it’s colored contacts, bleaching it’s skin, dying it’s thinning hair beach blond, and seething over the dark skinned boy that rejected it in middle school. I guess some people can’t learn to let go of grudges.

    • Next Platinum Album Will Be R8. You can start seething now, closet stans! August 25, 2015

      Yes please, sis! Drag it to the pits of hell and back so good that it will seethe from inside its lonely, dark cave. Shade the fuuck out of that two-faced, dependent, closet-standing h** that likes to throw rocks and point fingers. Let it run behind the help to save it from an epic dragging, but it can’t hide from me. That wishy-washy, sometimish biitch better cling to a wall and get ready for this ass whooping instead of running for help under a certain Stan base. It better get its faves albums to sell more than her baby daddy’s instead of writing checks with its mouth that the h** can’t damn well cash. Better learn to please a man and suck a diick.

      • african music lover August 25, 2015

        Oh Jesus!!you guys are ruthless… LOL

  11. Arie August 25, 2015

    Rihanna is not as active on Social Media like before. She’s more private now considering that she has stalkers that are ready to pounce at any given time.

  12. Barb-wire August 25, 2015


  13. Bam Bam August 25, 2015

    Title is very misleading because technically she’s the most followed entertainer….

  14. Oscar the grouch August 25, 2015

    Kim isn’t an entertainer….

    • Music matters August 25, 2015

      What kim does is entertainment. Trashy but it’s still entertainment.

  15. lol August 25, 2015

    But Kim is a pornstar not an entertainer

    • african music lover August 25, 2015

      I guess P*** is considered some form of entertainment….

  16. B Lamont August 25, 2015

    It means nothing because social media followers don’t equate to record sales. Kim K and her sisters having zero talent proves that people just want to be voyeurs into celebrity life. So if I were Beyoncé or any other artist out here it wouldn’t matter one bit unless it was going to have an impact on my music sales and clearly Beyoncé (or any other artist) isn’t selling anywhere near 40 million every time she releases new music.

  17. Sherry August 25, 2015


  18. Centurion August 25, 2015

    She’s a recluse low self-esteem slave so of course she’s bùtt hurt. ???? ???? ????

    • Yonce August 25, 2015

      I’d be b*** hurt if I wasn’t in the top 10 and was getting slayed by newbies like Ariana Grande poor Flophanna.

      • rosy August 25, 2015

        You hives worrying about rih because your queen got beat by Kim so you haters coming on here dragging her rih is not on social media anymore like these h*** gtfoh with that s*** glad Kim beat by ass don’t come for rih

  19. Keri Qween August 25, 2015

    The hive+ cerebrating instagram followers how pathetic ????

    • african music lover August 25, 2015

      But what’s there to celebrate about your fav and please dont bore me with those pathetic “she wrote coutless hits” attempts?

    • Yonce August 25, 2015

      Is Keri even in the top 500 most followed people on IG?

  20. Suicide Blonde August 25, 2015

    LOL at the top ten, i don’t follow celebrities, only friends and rock bands/lead singers.

    • Legend B August 25, 2015

      Who Cares

    • blue August 25, 2015

      bey not bothered one bit, so i dont know why people are bashing kim for this when this is her job…her money is decided by the reach she has…as i said to some the following is more important then the number.rihanna isnt in the top ten and news reports are made about her account

  21. Pop August 25, 2015

    At least Kim follows some folks back…. Not even Solange got a follow back from her sis lmao! I guess Bey truly feels everyone has to bow down!

  22. LOL August 25, 2015

    Omg this site gives a good laugh for the foolishness. When Beyoncé had the most followers, Sam posted praised the Queen. Now she has been knocked to second, Sam is like “how important is it really?” Lmao #sad

  23. LOL August 25, 2015

    Sam and David are one in the same to me. Both bitter queens that hate on greatness

  24. Legend B August 25, 2015

    Kii Do anybody see what i see?? The Queen is the only entertainer or celebrity in the top 10 with 3 decades in the business!!! Where are her peers??? She slaying biitches of this generation. The Queen popularity “Wont Let Up”! #BowDownBiitches

    • blue August 25, 2015

      3 decades? Really? Really? Do u not know what a decade is?…or

      • Legend B August 26, 2015

        90s 2000s, 2010> dumb biitch.

  25. Molly August 25, 2015

    Smfh half the Kardashian/Jenner family is in the top 10 WOW. Im shocked Rihanna isn’t in top 10 but Nicki is . #HowTheMightyHaveFallen

    • What now August 25, 2015


      • Molly August 25, 2015

        Isn’t Rihanna a huge international star? Yet she’s being slayed by Onika and The Kardashians hahaha the mighty have fallen no one cares for it anymore.

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 25, 2015

      But Ciara is being slayed by all three of them in terms of talent, net worth, relevance and deals. So where’s the drag? If you’re going to cling to the HIVE have your SHÏT together

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 25, 2015

      Rihanna was kicked off of Instagram. Do you remember or are you that dumb? She’s still reign supreme in all other social media outlets, and still THE most watched person on YouTube. Now go back to your underground sewer b*tch

  26. What now August 25, 2015

    POINTLESS POST. IT’S A PROVEN FACT THAT record companies buy their artists followers to help their artists feel relevant & keep their ego intact. And we all know dat Kris & the Kardashian Kult put their followers on the same credit card they used 2 buy their asses. Any 1 can b social media famous 4 only $20. Nothing 2 celebrate folks.

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 25, 2015

      And yet you’re still irrelevant, so what’s the excuse since it only cost $20. How much money are you paying to keep that dial-up service on your computer sis? And you STILL can’t keep up with the comments and replies?

      I thought since you were wise you’d also spend your money on a keyboard that has all the letters and special characters, much like those in your head, so that we could comprehend you better and not think you’re illiterate but…*shrugs* ????.

    Yonce is the real queen of the gram #FuckKim

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 25, 2015

      Yes, she is, but not you trying to drag Kim when she’s best friends with your fave. KIIIII Birds of feather flock together, and your dumbass clearly flocks with them.

  29. SMH August 25, 2015

    In typical fashion, the beyonce fans now wanna claim that IG followers don’t matter since their queen got knocked to the servant position, but were screaming about how she’s the queen when she was number one. Now watch how IG followers will all of a sudden mean something if she manages to get back to number one.

    Some queen she is, 43 million followers yet she can’t get an album to sell past 2 million lol.

    • Yonce August 25, 2015

      Where is Rihanna though? Don’t worry about Queen Bey atleast she made the list.

    • african music lover August 25, 2015

      I could swear she did that in USA
      alone with her last album
      something that goat has done
      once in her shambling career….
      But hey,i could be wrong.

    • Legend B August 26, 2015

      This biitch right here though kii kii. I have never saw a Hive member stan for instragram followers. Must got The Hive mixed up with Hoeianna Hoodrats???

  30. african music lover August 25, 2015

    Where is the global star?? how the mighty has indeed fallen! I mean she cant even get her last two singles to platinum yet her stans always have $hit to say and labelling other artists flops!

    • Molly August 25, 2015

      *sips this true tea*

    • african music lover August 25, 2015

      I love how they act like American pu$$y oxide never happened and those 3 flop songs from that soundtrack never existed… but hei, what do i know?

  31. african music lover August 25, 2015

    I could swear she did that in USA alone with her last album something that goat has done once in her shambling career…. But hey,i could be wrong.

  32. Yonce August 25, 2015

    Rihannnas flop ass fan are so mad must be because even the former fat Kardashian is slaying RiYawna in followers. Queen Bey ain’t bothered by no pornstar claiming the top spot when Kim can’t even claim any walls.

    • rosy August 25, 2015

      You hives worrying about rih because your queen got beat by Kim so you haters coming on here dragging her rih is not on social media anymore like these h*** gtfoh with that s*** glad Kim beat by ass don’t come for rih

  34. Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 25, 2015

    Molly shouldn’t even be on this post. Your fave’s pedigree doesn’t match up to that of those mentioned here.

  35. fatusankoh August 25, 2015

    Kim can buy all flawer s bey is the real deal she get what she have with talente and hard work haters will do anything to put bey down thank god they are not God

  36. Slay_Hive August 25, 2015

    The navy is a mess! Beyonce has gained nearly 30 million followers since Rihanna was allowed back on IG AND Rihanna posts more pics. They kill me with the excuses. She is just fading into irrelevancy. She is no longer that interesting!

    • Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) August 25, 2015

      I’m so glad you finally learned how to crop your avi. Look at God.

      • Slay_Hive August 25, 2015

        Biitch don’t bring your dunce ass kissing retarded ass in my reply box with your stupidity. My avi has always been the same. Don’t try it biitch!!

      • Jamie August 25, 2015

        Put dat b**** in check @Slay_hive

  37. Jamie August 25, 2015

    Rihnavy is so desperate for attention.

  38. Goldie August 25, 2015

    Poor Rihanna. No one cares about her anymore. She’s abandoned her own fans

  39. RihYonce August 25, 2015

    Beyoncé will pass this Thot again once she returns with new music in the fall
