Update (9/8): Taylor Swift has just beaten Kim Kardashian for the title of most followers on Instagram. The 1989 starlet has racked up 45.4 million, a cool 100,000 more than Kanye West's better half, who recently passed Beyoncé for the top spot. Let the games begin! Where you at, Bey?

Original Story (8/25): Beyoncé's Instagram account is truly a gift from the social media gods. It's dangerously easy to load that puppy up and find yourself liking scads of pics from baby Blue Ivy's earliest days on this planet, then images of mommy completely slaying the stage, then red carpet pics with Jay Z, on and on.

So Bey's feed is perfect, but apparently there's a new queen of the picture-sharing app: Kim Kardashian West has just passed the music mogul for most Insta followers. 

As of Monday, August 24, Beyoncé's 44 million follower count was surpassed by Kim K's 44.1 mill. How long will the rankings last? Taylor Swift is close, with 43.7 million followers...
