HOW MUCH?! This Is What Selena Gomez Earns Every Time She Posts Sponsored Content On Social Media
It's more than most people probably earn in a decade.
It pays to be popular, and Selena Gomez’s 180 million-strong following across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is apparently netting her some serious dollah, even more than the likes of Kendall, Kylie, Rihanna, Beyonce and Taylor in fact.
A report by social media ranking app D’Marie estimates that top social influencers like Kendall and Gigi are earning around $125,000 to $300,000 per social media post, which sounds like a pretty deadly deal, until you hear how Selena’s sponsored posts are doing in comparison.
The analytics app says that according to their algorithm she could be making upwards of $550,000 for every.single.post.
While that may seem like big bucks, it could be money well spent for advertisers, as her most recent ad post on Instagram is now the social media site’s most liked picture, netting Selena 4.6 million likes in the three weeks since it was posted.

Unfortunately, while Selena may be raking in serious cash from her social media channels, many are slamming her for not using her influence to talk about more important issues; the very thing she called out the industry for doing when she defended Taylor Swift recently.
There are more important things to talk about… Why can’t people use their voice for something that fucking matters?

But whether Selena chooses to tweet about her squad or ‘something that matters’, we don’t see her bank balance taking a hit anytime soon.
