A necessary hindsight. Selena Gomez is an artist whose career began when she was very young. The actress rose to prominence for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place. Quickly appreciated by viewers, she has met with immense success and has been doing interviews, television appearances and albums for several years. Very transparent with her fans, she has always mentioned her mental health, which has had its ups and downs. While on the cover of the American version of ELLE magazine, the singer spoke about her social networks and she made a surprising revelation. Although she is very present on her Instagram account, Selena Gomez has confirmed that she does not have the app on her own phone. A decision she made in 2017, when she was the most followed celebrity on the social network. “This app, on which I was followed by over 150 million people … I just deleted it from my phone. And it was such a relief for me,” she said. However, she is at the origin of the various publications since it is she who sends her assistants the photos as well as the captions that must be shared with her subscribers.

It was boring because in the past I could spend hours looking at other people’s lives,” she said. clarified before adding, “Now I’m getting the information the right way. When my friends have something to say, they call me and say, ‘Oh, I did that.’ They don’t tell me. : “Wait, have you seen my post?” Taking a step back with social networks allowed Selena Gomez to find herself and focus on her personal projects, notably Rare Beauty, her cosmetics brand.
