We can't say we're surprised...

When you meet someone, your head is dizzy with happiness and you just want to tell everyone about your newfound love (whether they like it or not). But how do you inform your nearest and dearest? Forget a Facebook relationship status (that's so 2010), these days it's all about the debut selfie on Instagram...

And Selena Gomez is certainly no stranger to the game, as she took to the social media platform to confirm her relationship with The Weeknd (AKA Abel Tesfaye) in the most millennial way possible. Back in April, the singer posted the couple's first selfie at Coachella and it quickly became her most liked Instagram snap to date, garnering over 6.9 million likes.

So it comes as no surprise that Selena has earnt the top spot as Instagram's highest earner. According to Hopper HQ, Selena Gomez makes approximately £425,000 per post. The 24-year-old is also the most followed on the social media app with over 122 million followers. But the singer has been reigning Instagram for a while now, as just last year, Instagram reported that eight of the most liked Instagram posts belonged to Selena.

But who took second place? It probably won't susprise you that Kim Kardashian is the second highest earner on the social media app with her sisters following closely behind. Kylie Jenner came third followed by Kendall, Khloe and Kourtney. While Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid took the eighth and ninth spots.
