Selena Gomez dominated Instagram's Top 10 most liked photos and videos in 2016.

Despite not posting for months at a time to focus on bettering her mental health, Selena Gomez remains the most-popular celebrity on Instagram this year in terms of followers and "likes" count.

The Revival singer has more followers than any other person, has had eight of the 10 most-liked celebrity photos and seven of the top 10 celebrity videos this year, BBC reports.

Others topping the list include Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian. Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is the most popular male Instagrammer.

hostess vibes. Happy 4th everyone!

It's a feat Gomez could probably do without. During her acceptance speech at the American Music Awards last month, the pop star said: "I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see what's in here [points to chest]. I'm not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore. All I can say is I'm so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every day with people that I love. I have to say thank you so much to my fans, because you guys are so damn loyal, and I don't know what I did to deserve you. But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. That's one thing you should know about me: I care about people. And this is for you."

This could perhaps be an explanation as to why ex Justin Bieber is so repulsed with the app. "Nah, I don't want to get my Instagram back... I'm sure... I think hell is Instagram," he told concert-goers this week. "I'm 90 percent sure. We get sent to hell, we get like locked in the Instagram server."

This is Selena's second most popular picture on the site (the first is the Coca Cola Insta up top).
