Just a few weeks after supplanting Beyoncé as Instagram’s most followed, Kim Kardashian now finds herself in the number two spot, ABC News reports. Because over the weekend, Taylor Swift became the most followed celebrity on Instagram. Bow down to your new InstaQueen.

But don’t despair, Kim fans! The two stars are separated by barely ​40,000 or so followers. Taylor currently claims 45,522,135​ cat and sweater-obsessed fans, while Kim clocks in at a highly respectable 45,479,141​, according to SocialBlade. Taylor may have taken the edge this weekend when she Instagrammed a photo of herself wearing a sweater knitted by a fan. (Perhaps the surge could be attributed to a surge of excited knitters, taking over Taylor’s follows?)

Rounding out the top five are Beyoncé ​with 45,077,505​, Selena Gomez with 43,163,698​, and Ariana Grande with 42,677,226​. Damn, that’s a lot of people following celebrities on Instagram. ​
