Time has changed again and again and there has been one head after another on which the crown of the most followed Instagram celebrity went to. And that’s how we see the success of a celebrity nowadays, don’t we? Who has got the most followers, who is making the most headlines, and who has the best merch out there? But we have just got another parameter to judge their ‘celeb-dom’ altogether.
Hopper HQ has released a list of 100 people who are highest paid for this year on the photo-sharing site. The list topper is none other than the world’s youngest billionaire Kylie Jenner who charges $1.2 million for each sponsored post she makes from her handle. BTW She’s the 6th most followed person on the social media site.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the most followed person on Insta, has been ranked 3rd on the list. He charges $975,000 per post.
From India, only two people have made it to the list – Priyanka Chopra and Virat Kohli. PeeCee, who is the most followed Indian, makes $271,000 each time she has a sponsored post from her account. She is ranked 19 on the list. Virat Kohli has locked the 23rd spot with $196,000 per post.
Second on the list is none other than the ‘Thank U, Next’ hitmaker Ariana Grande ($996,000 per post). And I’m sure you are wondering where is Kim Kardashian in all this? Well, she is holding on to the fourth position on the list – $910,000 per post. At consequent positions are Selena Gomez ($886,000 per post), Dwayne Johnson ($882,000 per post), Beyonce Knowles ($785,000 per post), Taylor Swift ($748,000 per post), sport star Neymar da Silva Santos Junior ($722,000 per post), and Justin Bieber ($722,000 per post).
Also, in the list appear beauty bloggers and fashion models like James Charles, Huda Kattan, and Bella Hadid. Among the football stars, LeBron James, David Beckham, and Lionel Messi have managed to grab the spots on the top 100.
Were there any surprises?
