Just look to Instagram to see who the most talked about people are. Instagram is like the new Access Hollywood. Only it’s even more Access Hollywood than Access Hollywood. Because now, you can see what the stars are doing around the clock. And you can see much more than stars running away from cameras, with their faces cloaked in Gucci sweaters terrified of the spotlight. Celebrities today love the camera. They love it so much, they’re willing to show you everything. You can see little moments you would have never gotten to see before, like Taylor Swift lounging in front of a barbecue grill or Kylie Jenner posted up with her high school diploma. It’s all out there people! All you need to do is click the follow button.

So in all honesty, there’s a whole world of celebrity dreamland available for the masses to see. Some pictures stood out more than others. Some pictures were so great I had to put together a list for you. Each picture has its own story. And that’s the great thing about pictures - they speak a thousand words. Each picture, except for the first, has anywhere from 1.5 to over 2.5 million likes. And that's not counting all the people who didn’t click the "<3," but liked the picture anyway.

So when you do the math, the top pictures on this list receive a new view every second, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Here are 11 Celebrity Instagram Pictures That Broke The Internet.

11 The First Ever Instagram Picture


It was the first photo ever taken on Instagram.  And it was taken by Kevin Systrom - entrepreneur and computer programmer best known as the co-founder and CEO of Instagram. The picture features Kevin and a dog he found in Mexico near a taco stand. The foot was of his girlfriend. At the time, it was a simple test of a filter. Kevin describes the project as an app he was working with “on the side.”

10 Kim Kardashian In Mexico


Kim Kardashian posted this photo in October, 2013. This was shortly after KimYe's wedding in Florence, Italy, where Andrea Bocelli treated the two to a serenade. The couple then took several trips around the world. This photo took place on Kanye and Kim’s second honeymoon in Mexico; the first being in Ireland. They were staying with friend Joe Francis in the "Punta Mita villa."

9 Lady Gaga V Magazine

Via V Magazine

In 2013, pop star Lady Gaga posed naked for V Magazine. Dutch photographers Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin first posted the picture, which was an outtake from their cover shoot with Lady Gaga. On Instagram the caption read, "Get ready world for our pics of @ladygaga for @vmagazine !kisses iv #artpop.” A week before, “Burqa,” a new Lady Gaga song, showed up on the Internet.

8 Selena Gomez Under The Curtains


In March 2014, Selena Gomez posted a picture of herself on Instagram. She appeared to not have any clothes on. The photo had no caption. This was around the same time people knew Selena and Justin were in a relationship. In fact, it could have even been Justin himself who took the photo. In January 2014, Selena spent two weeks at Dawn at the Meadows, a treatment center in Arizona. Her representative stated it was “voluntarily […] but not for substance abuse.”

7 Justin Bieber and “Uncle Will”


It was the most liked Instagram photo of 2013, receiving over 1.5 million likes. Justin Bieber and the Smith's are “totally tight” according to MTV. He and Jaden Smith have sparked a "bromance," having collaborated on “Happy New Year.” They’ve also done a cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You.” So it’s only right that Justin and Will Smith started bonding. The photo's caption read “Me and uncle Will.”

6 Rihanna Wears Prada


Rihanna is one of the most popular celebs on Instagram. This amazing photo was a thank you message to Miuccia Prada, Prada’s chief designer. Prada designed a pair of custom boots for Rihanna. And to show her vast appreciation, she wrote to Miuccia Prada, “Gotcha b*tch tip toeing on my marble flo!!! Sick ass custom Prada boots! Miuccia you RULE!!!”

5 Ariana Kissing Miley


Ariana Grande kissed Miley Cyrus at the 2014 MTV VMAs. This was also the same night the Ariana and Big Sean dating rumors were confirmed as they were seen holding hands backstage. Back to the kiss - it confirmed that the two women weren’t feuding. It happened as Ariana headed towards the stage to accept her award for Best Pop Video of the Year. Ariana's "Problem" was the winning song. Months later, the two performed a cover of Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” raising awareness for Miley’s Happy Hippie Foundation, which helps homeless and LGBT youths.

4 KimYe’s Wedding Picture


3 Taylor and Calvin


This photo garnered over 2.5 million likes on Instagram. Now Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are one of the most popular celebrity couples in the world. They’re also one of the most powerful. Forbes ranked them as the "highest-paid couple in music," with joint earnings of over $146 million. Jay Z and Beyoncé came in second place with $110.5 million.

2 From Kanye To Taylor


Kanye West and Taylor Swift are friends now. Kanye also announced that he is running for president in 2020. Taylor Swift posted a photo of Kanye’s gift to her on Twitter. So there's more validation for the two’s friendship. It was a cube of white roses with some flowers mixed in. Appreciatively she wrote, “Awww Kanye sent me the coolest flowers!!” She also included the hashtags #KanTay2020 and #BFFs. So now you know that they are friends. And they’ll be running for president together sometime in the oh so bright future.

1 Kendall Jenner - Most Liked Photo Ever


Kendall Jenner has now surpassed her half-sister Kim Kardashian in Instagram popularity. It’s only natural with her being a member of the Kardashian clan. With the saying “take that KimYe," this photo became the most liked photo on Instagram ever. The photo had over 2.5 million likes in a course of five weeks.

The fashion model and television personality's career has taken off ever since her breakout in 2014. She’s part of an emerging fashion movement. They call it “Social Media Modeling” or “the Instagirl era.” In the same month, she walked a fashion show in Antalya, Turkey. According to Kendall, she has no strategy for posting photos on Instagram, saying “I have really stayed true to myself on Instagram […] It’s what I want. I don’t have a strategy, and I don’t have a team doing it for me,[…] I don’t find it to be authentic.”
