Of all the social media sites, Instagram might be your best shot at taking a closer glimpse of your favorite celeb’s personal life. Trying to find the perfect stars to follow may be a strenuous process but have no fear; we’ve generated a list of the top ten celebrities you MUST follow on Instagram.
1. Rihanna (@badgalriri)
A post shared by badgalriri (@badgalriri) on
Unless you reside under a rock, there’s a major chance that you already follow the Grammy award-wining singer. With over 57 million followers on Instagram, Rihanna is one of those accounts that you just can’t ignore. Not only does the Bajan superstar keep fans up-to-date on her latest business ventures but she also posts the occasional controversial photo-op. If Rihanna isn’t already a consistent face on your timeline, you should probably change that.
2. Beyoncé (@beyonce)
If you’re into aesthetically pleasing visuals, Beyoncé’s Instagram is the place for you. Knowles-Carter shares a plethora of personal moments featuring her closest family members and friends while simultaneously organizing her uploads in stylish manner. With over 107 million followers, the multi-talented entertainer’s profile is arguably one of the most popular on Instagram to date.
3. Zoë Kravitz (@zoeisabellakravitz)
Zoë Kravitz is probably well known for being the daughter of actress Lisa Bonet and singer Lenny Kravitz but the 28-year old Lolawolf singer has definitely made a name for herself. Kravitz’s Instagram is a cluster of high fashion shots, personal photo-ops and bold political statements. The actress/singer/model doesn’t censor her Instagram posts whatsoever and proudly shows off her support for the Black Lives Matter movement, feminist movement and even LGBTQ+ groups. If you haven’t already, be sure to become a part of the 3.1 million following Zoë on Instagram asap.
4. Cardi B (@iamcardib)
Cardi B’s rise to music fame may have been fairly recent but her presence as an Instagram personality has been existent for years. The Bronx native is well-known for her relatable and equally hilarious Instagram videos about everyday struggles as well as her posts of humorous memes. Cardi has over 12.4 million followers and never fails to keep her supporters in good spirits.
5. DJ Khaled (@djkhaled)
DJ Khaled might be one of the most boisterous figures in music right now and his Instagram definitely matches his energy. Khaled is always providing his 8.2 million followers with inspirational posts and of course, pictures of his adorable son Asahd (who you can also follow @asahdkhaled). If you’re looking for a pick-me-up or just want to see pictures of a super cute baby, you should probably give DJ Khaled a follow.

Along with being the leader of the South Korean girl group Girls’ Generation, Taeyeon is the second most followed K-Pop idol with 10.5 million followers. Taeyeon’s Instagram account is a great example of seeing “The Two Sides of The Same Person”. The first half of her life can be seen through the videos and pictures of her “idol life” through self-promoting either the group’s upcoming album or even her own solo work. The other half of life is her everyday life as the adorable homebody that is always looking for a new adventure. From taking a glimpse of her Instagram page, it brings a smile and they can relate to her to some extent.
7. SHINee’s Key (@bumkeyk)
Kim Kibum, or better known as Key is part of a five-member South Korean boy group called SHINee. With 4.4 million followers, Key is the most followed SHINee member on Instagram. Unlike the typical celebrity Instagram page, Key’s Instagram page isn’t completely flashy and into your face.

Talking about his dogs, Key recently made an instagram page for Commes Des and Garcons and you can follow them @commegalife.

10. Roger Mathews (@rogermathewsnj)

He isn’t afraid to post candid pictures of his wife and his two children Meilani Alexandra and Greyson Valor.
