Selena Gomez is the fifth most-followed star on Instagram with a raking follower count of over 165 million. But, the social media force has decided to leave Instagram and this huge fan base after her new album drop.
It is not new for Gomez to take periodical breaks from social media. Her mental health has always remained at the top of her priority list over her social media life. The reason why this will not be her first time taking a break from Instagram. The American singer, actress, songwriter, and producer is all set to launch her latest album ‘Rare’ on the 10th of January 2020.
In a recent interview, she shared that she was back again on Instagram only to do her promotional activity for her latest album, and has told one of her friends that she will be taking it out of her phone soon. She is known to have an extremely close gang of friends who do not belong to the entertainment industry and help her enjoy a life offstage.
She further added that her friends are very much aware of her addictive personality and Instagram can be seriously unhealthy. Selena Gomez, 27 in an interview with Vogue, back in 2017 has confessed that being the most followed person on Instagram had started consuming her and made her an addict. She went to sleep with it and woke up to it. After consuming all kinds of information that she did not need and did not care about, the social media platform only made her feel bad at the end of the day. She freaked out and took her first social media break.
In September 2018, Selena announced her second break to her fans. She thanked her fans for the voice they have given her but also is grateful to her life away from the phone. Requesting, no negative comments, she left her Instagram family for almost 4 months. The reason why the news of Selena taking another social media break might not be a piece of good news for her fans.
