Obviously, the B stands for complete bae; look how gorgeous she is. We're actually obsessed. 

Taylor Swift comes in at #3. There isn't anyone or anything missing from her feed. She's friends with everyone from Jay Z and Beyoncé to Fetty WapTaylor Swift's birthday party

Some of her pictures are hella cute and there is no debate in that, go Taylor. 

Ariana Grande has got no "Problem" with having 40.5 million followers.donut licker

The battle of the ex’s is on at #5 and #6 with Selena Gomez (40.3 million) and Justin Bieber (35.8 million), who is the highest ranked male on the list. It’s a shame we couldn’t have combined both their followers together, but that’s a debate for another time (*crys inside*).
