Selena Gomez Rules Social Media In 2017

December 13, 2017

Once again, Selena Gomez reigns as the queen of social media.

The pop superstar slash television producer beat out Ariana Grade by more than 15 million followers to keep her top spot among Instagram users. Amazingly, she also gained more than 34.4 million followers in 2017 alone.Its been an incredible, yet tumultuous year for Gomez, who has seen her typically successful musical output take a back seat to her personal life. Her affliction with Lupus necessitated a kidney transplant, and brought about plenty of charitable effort on her part as well. Her relationship with The Weeknd came and went, leading to her reunion with former partner Justin Bieber.Gomez also executive produced 13 Reasons Why, a Netflix drama, which opened up conversations about bullying and mental health. It was a year in which Gomez became a very vocal advocate for womens issues, as well as health issues both physical and mental. When people talk about pop starlets growing up, it usually means artists opening themselves up when it comes to their sexuality. While doing that should still naturally be encouraged and praised rather than demonized, the steps Gomez and her contemporaries like Grande, Demi Lovato, Lauren Jauregui and others have taken for various social efforts have been even more remarkable and groundbreaking.To close out the year, Gomez released a new single with Marshmello titled Wolves:
