Selena Gomez, who has an on-and-off relationship with social media, is ready to take another break from it!
“I’m good,” she said in a TikTok live. “I love who I am, I don’t care. I’m big, I’m not, I don’t care. I love who I am. And yeah, I’m gonna be taking a second from social media ’cause this is a little silly. And I’m 30, I’m too old for this. But I love you guys so much! And I will see you guys sooner than later. I’m just gonna take a break from everything.”
Selena Gomez announced about her break on the same day she crossed Kylie Jenner and became the most-followed woman on Instagram with 381 million followers. Recently, fans speculated a feud between Gomez and The Kardashians after accidentally laminating her eyebrows too much. However, she shut down the rumours and is still good friends with Kylie Jenner.
Gomez has always been vocal about the impact of social media on her health, and has never shied away from stepping away from it for a while. “Taking a break from social media was the best decision that I’ve ever made for my mental health,” she said in an interview. I created a system where I still don’t have my passwords. And the unnecessary hate and comparisons went away once I put my phone down. I’ll have moments where that weird feeling will come back, but now I have a much better relationship with myself.”
