I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

Shockingly the rest of the top 10 most liked photos are just from these three celebrities. This shouldn’t be shocking considering that Selena, Cristiano and Beyoncé are three of the top four most followed celebrities on Instagram. Ariana Grande beat out Beyoncé for the third slot with 115 million followers, but none of Ariana’s post made the top 10.
The celeb with the most posts in the top 10 liked list is Selena. She has five of the top 10 most liked photos. All hail the queen of Instagram, Selena.
