Kim Kardashian selfie

Have we reached peak Kim Kardashian selfies? Today, the reality TV star and occasional home video mogul celebrated reaching 45 million Instagram followers–the most on the platform by half-a-million folks–with exactly what she’s most-known for.

As a matter of fact, Kim spent the whole day in bed–as part of a trans-continental photography shoot, soon to be published in Interview magazine. She documented the session for her loyal Instagram following before noting that the total number of those loyal followers had eclipsed previous record-holder Beyoncé. So, Kim celebrated with a trio of now-patented Kim Kardashian selfies:

45 million Instagram followers!!!!! I love you guys!!!!!

Indeed, Kim Kardashian’s Instagram followers now number ju-u-ust about 400,000 more than those of Beyoncé. Bey’s got 44.6 million to Kim’s 45–most striking, though, is that Kim Kardashian’s Instagram following numbered “only” 27 million as recently as February. That is a whole lot of people who’ve decided over the past six months that “Kim Kardashian Instagram” is a thing worth following.
