You'd have thought that someone like Justin Bieber or Beyonce would have the most popular Facebook page in the world, right?

Wrong! Because - and this may come as a surprise to some - that accolade was today awarded to Shakira whose page on the social network has become the most-followed.

The singer, 37, has notched up more than 86 million followers on her page, about 20 million more than Beebs and roughly 30 million more than Mrs Carter.

Today, the site broke the news to the Colombian star who seemed flabbergasted at the news! As many are no doubt!

And she thanked her fans when she said: "Wow... I was just told I now have the most-followed page on Facebook in the world! I still cannot believe it!

"I always wanted to have a lot of friends but never imagined it would be so many...86m! 

"So humbled, can't thank you guys enough for your support. I feel so fortunate to have you. Giant kiss! Forever thankful, Shak."

And she posted a snap of her lying on a bed blowing a kiss to her fans.

She also posted the same message on her Twitter page - which only has a measly 24.5 million followers in comparison.

Shakira's new self-titled album is due out next Monday and last night she was in Barcelona, Spain for the official launch.

She is set to perform her new single Empire on BBC One's The Voice a week tomorrow (March 29th).
