In this 6 million users, any one from any where can be in the list because the hacker did not revealed that which accounts they targeted. So the list of hacked accounts can contain anyone! popular or common person, sports stars, politicians or media companies can be in the list, Its not possible to predict which kind of accounts they targeted.
However, Instagram did not confirmed that the Incident of Selena Gomez’s was related to data breach.
