As artists, Jay-Z and Beyoncé can rank their combined successes in many ways: Awards, sales, and much more. But what about their social media status? Take a look at this list of celebrity couples with the largest Instagram followings to see where they rank.
Before every celebrity couple had a portmanteau, there was Posh and Becks. Former Spice Girl Victoria (née Adams) Beckham (aka Posh Spice) began dating athlete David Beckham back in her heyday. She launched a fashion empire, he later retired and switched to the managerial side of things, and the rest is history.
The couple tied the knot almost 21 years ago, but between photos of their kids, frequent throwbacks, and their many celebrity connections (specifically the royal ones), they’ve remained as relevant as ever. They have a combined follower count of around 91 million, with David edging out Victoria.
When actor Orlando Bloom and singer Katy Perry first met and hit it off years ago, it was one of those romantic Hollywood moments that people live for. They dated for a while, broke up, and got back together fairly quickly. Now, the two are engaged and expecting their first child.
All of that is great for garnering a social media following. But it also helps that both have established fan bases. Bloom cemented his fame with major The Lord of the Rings and the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchises. And Perry is a chart-topping artist. Though he only has a few million followers, his number combined with Perry’s larger count is over 101 million.
Superstar Jennifer Lopez and athlete Alex Rodriguez make their lives look easy. Lopez, an ever-evolving musician and actor, has twins with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Former New York Yankee Rodriguez has two daughters with his own ex. And together, they’ve created what appears to be the happiest blended family around.
By sharing photos and videos featuring themselves and their kids, along with the usual celebrity content, Lopez and Rodriguez have racked up an impressive follower count. With over 122 million Instagram followers herself, adding in Rodriguez’s followers puts them at No. 3 with more than 125 million.
It’s hard to remember what the world was like before music’s wealthiest couple took it by storm. Following the one-two punch of “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” and “Crazy in Love,” rapper Jay-Z and Beyoncé, the break out solo act of Destiny’s Child, became inextricably linked. And after tying the knot and having three kids together, it’s hard to imagine it any other way.
Though they only land at No. 2 on this list, it’s a bit unfair. After all, Jay-Z doesn’t have his own Instagram account. So the number in question, 147 million followers, is entirely attributed to Queen Bey herself.
Yes, that’s right: The couple that tops this list is the youngest one. Which makes sense, given Instagram’s demographic and those who grew up on it. Musician Justin Bieber got his start as a preteen YouTube celebrity, which he turned into an impressive career as a pop singer.
Meanwhile, his wife, the model formerly known as Hailey Baldwin, is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin. After previously dating a number of years ago, the couple later got back together, tying the knot in 2018. Since then, their social media followings have grown such that they are the most-followed celebrity couple on Instagram, with more than 164 million followers combined.

Another week of social distancing at-home means another week of celebrity making major hair changes, including giving their significant other a matching haircut. Well, that is if you’re Miley Cyrus!
In addition to Cody Simpson‘s new ‘do, Khloe Kardashian made headlines when she showed off her major hair transformation, debuting darker tresses, and a reality star unveiled her natural look sans her signature extensions.
Plus, a wellness expert is opening up about her 50-pound weight loss journey after giving birth, and Chrissy Teigen made a major reveal on Instagram about a surgery she’s about to undergo.
And Jason Derulo once again is proving he’s one of Hollywood’s best follows on TikTok, taking yet another one of the social media platform’s viral challenges to the next level, turning into a Marvel superhero. (Seriously, we’re wondering if he went to a certain Avenger’s house to snag the suit, that’s how good his transformation was.)

The health and wellness expert revealed that she has lost 50 pounds nine months after welcoming her daughter Giovanna “Gigi” Ines in an Instagram post showing off her postpartum transformation.
“I still have a way to go, but my aim to feel strong in my skin, energetic for my kids, and to love the way my clothes fit have been my guide,” Oz, who is a WW ambassador, wrote, “I’ve had these goals in the back of my mind throughout the upheaval and stress of the past few months, because historically for me it would have been such an easy way to slip back into old emotional eating habits.”
Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson
The couple that mohawks together stays together!
The “Mother’s Daughter” singer gave her Australian beau a matching hairstyle, posting a photo of the couple on Instagram with the caption, “Matching mohawks.”
Just last week Miley shared a photo of her latest hairstyle, a pixie mullet that her mom Tish Cyrus gave her with a little virtual help from celeb hair guru Sally Hershberger.
As part of the “Wipe It Down” challenge, Derulo turned into the famous web-slinging superhero, showing off his dance moves while donning the famous red and blue suit.
On Instagram, the TV personality and cookbook author revealed she had gotten tested for coronavirus ahead of a surgery, documenting the process and later revealing what surgery she was undergoing.
“So I posted myself getting a covid test on the twitter, as I’m getting surgery soon,” she wrote. “A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out! They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it.”
“location: under bitches skin,” the Good American designer cheekily captioned a series of selfies on Instagram showing off her café brown ‘do brightened with blonde highlights.
Khloe’s darker tresses were a hit with fans and friends, with one comment reading, “Bronde has finally returned… We missed you baby.” The reality star wrote back, “Amen.”
Kim Zolciak’s daughter showed off her natural hair and skin on Instagram, posting an extensions and make-up free selfie.
“no hair extensions no makeup just chillin,” she captioned the pic.
Hours later, the 23-year-old star took to her Instagram Stories to defend accusations that she was lying about weird make-up in the photo, writing in a series of posts, “”Hahahha what the f–k. Why would i [sic] lie about not having makeup on..?..I’m allergic to eyelash extensions so i [sic] don’t get them. I literally came from the pool to the spa… if you don’t see me with a full face of makeup I’m not wearing any. I literally put a LIL swish of mascara on every day and call it a day. Thankful for good skin to keep y’all thinking it’s foundation.”
