Top 10 Instagram Users // August 2016

Michael Brown // 09th September 2016

Beyoncé continues her climb up the Instagram chart this month, leveraging a few hundred thousand extra fans to overtake Ariana Grande and claim her spot at number 4.

If her outfit at the VMAs is anything to go by, Beyoncé wants the world to know the Queen is back, and her eyes are set firmly on Selena’s throne.

In other news, Justin made the word ‘Sorry’ famous for other reasons this month as he followed through on his threats to ‘delete’ his Instagram account. Fans are now greeted with ‘Sorry, this page isn’t available’ if they try to access his collection of selfies. His account was ‘mistakenly’ reactivated for a brief period, though, so we don’t expect it will be long before the Beliebers can sleep soundly again.

Despite his inactivity on the platform he did manage to keep hold of spot number 7, holding a 2.4 million lead over Ronaldo for this month. How long can the Biebz hold out for? We can’t wait to see what happens in September!
