Kim Kardashian vs. Justin Bieber: Whose ‘Most Liked’ Instagram Photo Deserves the Title? – Readers Pollby Mandi Salerno | PopCrush
Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber rule their own separate corners of the social media universe. Each has her or his legions of fans that will like and share just about everything the two stars post on Twitter and Instagram. Up until recently, Justin Bieber held the record for the photo with the most ever ‘likes’ on Instagram, but Kim swept in with her hugely anticipated wedding with Kanye West and stole the prize. Who do you think is most deserving of the record?
We have to admit, the photo Justin posted that first earned him the ‘most likes’ is a pretty sweet pic. In the Insta you can see Justin being hugged from behind by his on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez. At the time the photo was posted, it was huge news to Beliebers and Selenators everywhere, as it was the first confirmation that the singers were once again back together. The romantic selfie racked up over 1.8 million likes and has since become a somewhat iconic part of the Jelena fandom. The photo clearly means a lot to both Justin and Selena fans — no wonder it kept the record for so long!
Kim K. took the entire media world by storm with her wedding to Kanye. The megastar couple struck a clever balance between releasing just enough information about the wedding to excite fans, while leaving all the details a big mystery to keep everyone guessing. It brewed a media frenzy. Every detail and photo released before and after the ceremony was eagerly absorbed. It’s no wonder, then, that the wedding shot that the newlywed posted of herself and Kanye sharing their first kiss received an explosion of attention. Within two days it had beat Justin’s record, and in the week since it was posted, it has earned over 2.1 million likes!
Both photos are sweet in their own ways, showing off the new or old love between two high-profile couples. So what do you think, PopCrushers? Should Justin’s photo of Selena have kept the record-breaking title or did Kim and Kanye deserve their wedding sweep?
