It is probably impossible to not have heard about Ariana Grande previously. This chart-topping and record-breaking singer is constantly making the Instagram “headlines”. At just the age of 26, she managed to rack up 160 million followers on her Instagram, which is absolutely insane. She usually posts pictures goofing off with their friends, chilling at some ridiculous mansion-like apartments or sharing some behind-the-scenes pictures from her amazing concerts.

Not only she is a famous actor, but also an even more famous singer. A few years ago she used to hold first place for the most Instagram followers, before Ronaldo and Ariana Grande took her down to the third place. However, having almost 150 million followers is still very impressive. She occasionally posts about the projects she is working on, and more casual, fun photos and selfies.
