When it comes to Instagram, birthday girl Selena Gomez has the magic touch. Not only is she the most-followed user on the popular photo sharing app, but as of last week, she also has the most-liked photo. So how does she do it? What does she know that we don't? The answer, which is actually quite simple, might surprise you. The 24-year-old superstar's Instagram presence feels so natural because she gives it very little thought.

"It comes in a moment when I capture something happening, and I go, 'Oh, that would be great for Instagram. I should post it,'" Gomez admitted to The Hollywood Reporter shortly after becoming the proud owner of the app's most-liked photo. "I know it's boring, but that's genuinely what I do."

"I'm not sure there's a method to my madness," Gomez confessed, although she did have a few bits of advice. For example, if you can't think of a good photo caption, use emoji and just "let it be," she said.

And when it comes to taking a good selfie, she believes it's a combination of staying true to yourself, and more importantly: good lighting. "I try to find a good balance of just being 100 percent myself and knowing when to post a really good selfie with good lighting," she said.

This means we had good lighting.. Right ladies?? 😂
