Beyonce and Kim Kardashian at NY Fashion Week 2015

Socialite Kim Kardashian easily defeated singer Beyonce in the battle of the narcissists.

On a list that ranks a star's popularity by her number of followers, Kim was crowned the Queen of Instagram, beating out Beyonce for the top honors with 44 million followers to Beyonce's 43 million.

At this very moment Bey is somewhere licking her wounds and working on a strategy to topple Kim from her lofty perch.

These things mean a lot to a narcissist.

From Us Weekly magazine:

The social media maven tops Instagram’s Top 10 list — which features two of her famous siblings, too. Following Beyonce is Taylor Swift with an impressive 43,533,226 followers. Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Nicki Minaj and Khloe Kardashian round out the rest.

Absent from the list, surprisingly, are Katy Perry (26 million) and Rihanna (24 million).

1. Kim Kardashian — 44,005,604

2. Beyoncé — 43,935,648

3. Taylor Swift — 43,533,226

4. Selena Gomez — 41,843,095

5. Ariana Grande — 41,696,873

6. Justin Bieber — 36,994,254

7. Kendall Jenner — 35,388,483

8. Kylie Jenner — 33,703,166

9. Nicki Minaj — 32,278,123

10. Khloé Kardashian — 30,522,261

  • stav

    I thought KK was just caught not too long ago trying to buy followers, if that's so, why should we believe this is legit?

  • SummerBaby

    ???

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Jay Z smokes? I had to find something more interesting than their faux followers.

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    +2 Again I dont get it.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    edit: ooooooooooohh OJ's daughter. Amber Rose, ur so funny.

  • Its Me

  • Michelle Peele

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    kardashians couldnt even much keep they chit in Sears. Go in there all they chit was trampled.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    and Bey ain't pressed for sh!t. But when that #BeyHive swarmssssss... It's curtainsss lmaooooo

  • Michelle Peele

    lmao!!! khloe simpson...wonder have she been to see her daddy in prison!

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I CAN'T DEAL. lmao. I bet those lips feel so good. Now those lips with that James Harden beard all in the spot....mmm mmm mmm. I can hardly stand up thinking about it.

  • Michelle Peele

    that gal's daddy is in the big house...somebody need to tell her! i bet she cry every time she drank orange juice! lmao!!!

  • SummerBaby

    Beyoncé follows zero on her ig. ??

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    You know Kim was standing in the mirror like Sally Fields when she saw this. 'They love me. They really love me'
    How many of my fellow 'old heads' know that reference?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    yeah, not quite a sears audience, so that was a bad business decision. I can see the Macy's or Dillards carrying their brand, but not Sears. Sears is my grandparents' go to place.

  • SummerBaby

    ?????

  • Sexy CJ

    ....................

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Out of all the followers that they have, how many are:

    Bought accounts
    Folks only there to talk chit
    Folks only there to lurk and be nosy
    Actual fans

  • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

    Kim is going to look like Kris no matter how much surgery she does.

  • zatshiphassailed

    She has a weave line.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Kim up there lookin like Blade from Puppet Master

  • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

    I think it's far to say that about 30% of those accounts are fake. 4 of them in the top 10... gtfoh.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I feel somewhat stalker-ish when I'm checking out someone's GIF...and I accidentally up vote their comment. Ish to close together!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    As the list shows, the Kardashians are the masters of social media. All of them are in the top 10 because that is how they earn their living unlike everyone else on the list who actually have a marketable talent.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    That wind that you speak of, could that be what dries out that chick's coot????

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Lil nasty wench

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I do, I do! ?? And I like Sally Fields! ?

  • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

    Why did my dirty mind read donut as cnut (switch the n and u). Smh

  • LittleAJ

    Who gives a flying fluck???

    http://i.imgur.com/i3IfafU.gif

  • I cAll ThE sHoTs…

    Thought this was her daddy?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    agreed. I gotta figure out something too before this social media stuff takes a turn. I kinda like my privacy though and not whoring myself out. I need to rethink that.

  • Ateya

    So Sandra...you going to act like in this picture JayZ isn't holding a drink with a joint....I see it...is that a staged photo...

  • Ateya

    Or is this a ring....yeah I think its a ring...he wouldn't be at a show with a joint...and a drink...lol

  • Monday

    If Beyonce had kept on doing like Taylor Swift is doing... meaning.. PERFORM then she would be back on lead... Heard Taylor did a great job in one of her shows yesterday.

    Music BEYONCE!!!!! Wait... GREAT MUSIC BEYONCE PLLEEEAASSEE. The Grammy music submission deadline has already passed now....

  • Letmecommentbeforeicant

    You have to take into consideration the number of pervs that follow Kim for the occasional nude, the trans people who follow her to get closer to Bruce, and the fact that she pours her time into her account because that's her career. Beyonce just post pics occasionally for her fans while Kim is on there on the daily.

  • JENNYJONES1

    BUT KIM K COULDN'T EVEN SALE 44K OF HER BOOK WHICH IS 1% OF HER SUPPOSED 44 MILL INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS. BEYONCE SOLD OVER 2 MILL ON A ALBUM SHE DIDN'T EVEN DO ANY PROMO ON AND DID A SURPRISE RELEASE ON IT. ALL 4 OF HER ALBUMS HAVE SOLD OVER 2 MILL. I'LL TAKE HER ALBUM SALES OVER KIM K'S SUPPOSED IG FOLLOWER NUMBERS. I LIKE KIM K A LOT BUT SHE AIN'T HURTING BEYONCE'S NUMBERS AT ALL............JENNY JONES!!!!

  • barbeez

    I follow all of the Kardashians and Jenners except for Brucette because they're clowns. At least most of Beyoncé's followers are fans. I'm not a fan of Beyoncé and I don't even know if I follow her...if so she must be boring. Kim's so called fans rip her apart on the daily. I love it.

  • Tip

    COSIGN ?!!!! That pic is priceless!!!!!

  • MsVAllDay

    Just wait til that chick drop another album! IJS

  • Indies beauty

    I'm a business manager at Dillard's and they would never carry that line. No shade to the Kardashians but their line is not considered a luxury or semi luxury brand. It's also doesn't have a solid target or established brand name. J.C pennys, kohl's or even Belk would be a better choice.

  • Mahogany

    I was at Barnes and nobles the other day and caught glimpses of it. What a waste of paper.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I couldn't find a care if my life depended on it.

  • Soon2BWife

    The Trashians buy theirs!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Got it. I just knew sears was the wrong place for their line of clothes. So Dillards is along the lines of Nordstroms? Are they as expensive? I have a Nordstrom's card. I've never been inside Dillards.

  • lovelygamour

    katy perry and Rhiannon are probably the only people who didn't buy followers. also too many people on that list are in cohoots with jenner for this to be accurate.
    the only people moving weight on that list is blank beyonce and jealous swift.

  • Queen Negus

    Or buying followers?

  • scentsychick30

    Hopefully they buy her book?if only her followers got off Instagram and went to Barnes and noble ????

  • Queen Negus

    ??

  • Canary Red™

    I do the same thing???

  • Indies beauty

    Aww wish you were in Fl to invite you in the store, if you shop at Nordstorm you would love it. it's similar in regards to service and ambiance but more comparable to Macys (with out all the sales) in regards to brand selection.

  • Teachmeeatme

    Phahahahahahahaha!!!

  • lovelygamour

    how could that guy not be her father. I wonder do they acknowledge it in private.

  • lovelygamour

    when the sears by me had a going out of business sale that lasted at least 6 months the kardashian line didn't move. when they marked it down to like 5-12 then you saw some movement.

  • Baddiebeymyfav??????????????

    Lmaoo Right!

    Bey doesn't post that much. If she did, her IG followers would be wayyyy over 44 million. Wayy ahead of thirsty arse KUm.

  • QueenyBean

    At first I was like ?, then I was like ??, but your edit had me like ????

  • SpillyNillie

    And make sure it's the little gold star...

  • SpillyNillie

    Bey! Don't let these hoez out do ya!!!

  • iWasteTime

    lolololol
    She has more IG followers. ..bwhahahahaha
    She has more sess tapes, more black peen, less talent

  • what?why

    Oh Please, stop with this nonsense of playing with numbers.

  • GTFOHWTBS

    Damn. Do ur thing kim

  • nekkkyj

    I have a life i'm not on social media all day everyday

  • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

    ...more like a GOLDEN SHOWER....that's more like her type of reward....

  • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

    .... I HATE her too Dub...wish I could sic a trillion angry rats on her to destroy that damn ponytail and a trillion wasps to sting her to death....Ole 25 but rather act like a 12 yr sex kitten, immature, disgusting, devious, M.Carey wannabe skank.... #uggghhh

  • butchie4ever

    Yeah, but I am sure that Kim K's are ghost followers who were paid for....

  • Vagirl

    wow Kris looks like Kort in this picture..

  • $103237338

    I was thinking the same thing. I thought they already said most of those "followers" are fake...

  • Brandifromdablock

    Ok so the president or the pope didnt make the list tho...

  • Nigg.Newton

    Lmfao!! Kim can have all the followers she wants but she will never accomplish what Beyonce has and she going to have to answer to her daughter when she gets older

  • eljjai

    it's actually 0.1%. So epic fail on kim's part. I smell fake accounts. For most of these people.

  • Theladiehuntress

    It's the only way Kim makes money

  • KB

    Thanks ?

  • Ridingfinest

    And this is news worthy why????

  • product of 79

    Que the BEYHIVE in 5 4 3 2...... They bouta make grams for granny, the dog the cat and the dead for the queen bey LOL... Meanwhile Kim rubbing her hands like birdman?

  • product of 79

    ??? COMMAADEE LOL

  • sunni_daze

    But how many of her followers are brought/ fake accounts. She did get exposed for buying followers.

  • https://www.wattpad.com/user/aleonhart Annie Leonhart

    Hmmm . . . Only two black people on that top 10 list.

  • Meme81

    Well, Bruce will knock both of them off soon, lol

  • Meme81

    She looks like a little mouse and she's as annoying as one, too.

  • Ladysweetthang

    But umm do Kim K fans even read books.

  • RoniV

    LMAO....this heifer here. Wish anonymous would hack this heifer cuz she stays buying followers.

  • Candance

    I really get the feeling that Bey doesn't care at all!!!! She probably sent Kim a text and said good for you... now what?

  • side_i

    Exactly, Beyoncé post like once a month, Kim post every 5 minutes of her worthless existence. That was mean but I don't care.

  • Felicia Smith

    slow day for Sandra

  • Nix

    wow she really looks like the oddball...but you know genetics! yeah right!

  • Nix

    i thought same thing...is that a joint in his hand lol sadly its a two finger ring?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Ok, ur right about all the sales. I rarely, if ever, see Dillards commercials, but I drive past the store every day here in Atlanta. I'll have to check them out. Thx for the tip.

  • Tammie Reed

    Oh! I really don't care lol

  • SpiceGirl

    not sure why this is news worthy....I def dont follow KIMYE!

  • Casey

    So Bee is short 70k followers. Either way that entire list has alot of followers!!

  • Sainthella

    I would have thought Kim had way more then bey since she posts much much more then her

  • PussyGal0re

    ?????

  • LA Chic

    Rhianna with due respect was banned from Instagram for 4 months for showing her nipple. That made her not gain followers those months

  • LA Chic

    Damn Kourtney Kardashian what happened...oh I forgot she's boring.

  • PussyGal0re

    Well damn!!

  • thehumble1

    It is fixed LOL, and Bey is not far behind.... but who cares anyway!

  • SpiceGirl

    Yawning

  • Toya T

    It is a picture book and they still didn't buy it.

  • Toya T

    It is a picture book and they still didn't buy it.

  • mesmerizineyez .

    Well if Bey bought followers... nvm. Anyway she aint fkn with Mrs. Carters bank account. That's what really matters
