A 4-Year-Old Pic of Justin & Selena Kissing Is the Most Liked Pic on Instagram Now
Just when you thought the universe couldn’t possibly have devised a new way to shove Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s non-relationship down your throat, an old picture of Justin and Selena kissing becomes the most liked picture on Instagram.
It all started back in December of 2015 when Justin posted a throwback picture of him and Selena from their couple days.
People were v. confused but also v. convinced this was a sign that Justin and Selena were back together, which prompted Justin to eventually go back and caption the photo with “just a throwback please calm down.”
Then a couple months later, Justin surprised us all by posting yet another throwback photo of the couple with the mysterious caption “feels.”
And this time he wasn’t just affectionately pushing his head against Selena’s back while wearing a bucket hat, this time he was kissing her on the mouth, and she was kissing back — in a bathing suit!

Obviously, everybody freaked out a little and by a little we mean they freaked out a lot.
And the freakout kept going when news broke that Selena Gomez not only liked the photo, but she even commented on the photo saying it was “perfect.”

Then while we were off obsessing about other things like Lemonade and the Met Ball, Justin’s throwback picture was slowly accumulating likes, which is how we got to where we are now.
At the time of writing this article, Justin and Selena’s throwback kiss has 3,569,479 million likes.
By comparison, the second most liked picture on Instagram, which is of Kendall Jenner lying on the floor in a white dress with her hair arranged into numerous hearts, “only” has 3,561,172 million likes.
Seeing as Selena Gomez is currently the most liked person on Instagram and the world is still obsessed with the idea of her and Justin Bieber getting back together, this all makes sense.
But still, it’s also like, can’t we all just get a grip and let these twenty-somethings move on?
Or will it be Jelena 4eva?
Only time will tell.
