Let’s delve into the world of the highest-paid Instagram celebrities.

According to Hopper HQ, a social media management company, some celebrities can earn up to USD 3.2 million for a single sponsored post on Instagram. This includes international soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo. To determine the highest-paid celebrities on Instagram, the Bored Panda team analyzed data on the 850 most-followed American personalities on the platform. They looked at 90,000 posts featuring terms like “paid partnership” or hashtags such as #ad or #sponsored between April 2023 and March 2024.

Leading the pack is actor and comedian Kevin Hart, who raked in a whopping USD 28.1 million in 2023 from 26 sponsored posts. With nearly 180 million followers, Kevin Hart promotes his own brands like Gran Coramino tequila and VitaHustle on his account.

Among musicians, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, and DJ Khalid stand out as top earners. Surprisingly, Taylor Swift, despite her musical success, did not make the list due to her wealth coming from music rather than sponsored posts.
