Selena Gomez is proving that the year 2020 is hers to conquer as she eyes the lead with her upcoming new music that announces her banging return.
But there is one crown that the diva is already wearing and that is of her social media fan following boasting of 165 million followers. In spite of the connection she shares with her fans directly through Instagram, the 27-year-old is ready to give all of that away once again.
The fifth most followed person on Instagram revealed in her recent interview with WSJ Magazine that after her new album Rare goes public, she will be calling it quits with the photo-video sharing app.
“I got back on [Instagram] because I was releasing music, but I just told my best friend Courtney [Lopez] yesterday, I’m going to have to take it off my phone again soon,” she said.
Speaking about her girl pals who have kept themselves away from the public and have helped her stay connected to a life away from the spotlight, Selena added: “They know I have an addictive personality, and it can be unhealthy.”
She had earlier walked the same path back in September 2018 as well as she announced: “Taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember – negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.”
