The world still pines for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez' teenage romance. That statement might be something of a stretch, but it's at least true when viewed in the context of Bieber's Instagram account. 

In March, Biebs posted that now infamous photo of him locking lips with Gomez in a swimming pool. In the intervening weeks, that grainy photo of pubescent bliss became the most popular photo on Instagram, boasting a total of 3.5 million likes as of Wednesday (May 3). The singer captioned it with "Feels," just to pull at your heartstrings a little bit. 

New York magazine reminds us that Kendall Jenner used to posses Instagram's most liked photo, but that Bieber's "Feels" now takes the cake, as it's fast accruing near 3.6 million double taps. Gomez, on the other hand, has the most popular Instagram account in existence, so she's probably not too caught up in her ex's cloying tributes.
