Shakira has overtaken Rihanna as the most-liked person on Facebook. The Columbian superstar has 86.6 million followers compared to Rihann's 86.3.

Shakira posed on the social media site: "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."

Hopefully the news won't come between the pair's friendship - they recently paired up together on the song "Can't Remember to Forget You."
