Selena Gomez Is ‘Taking a Social Media Break’ — Again
After an active weekend posting Instagram stories praising Jennifer Lopez and sharing giggly videos from inside the studio, Selena Gomez has decided to take a break from social media. Again.
On Sunday (Sept. 23), the pop star posted an adorable selfie with the caption, "Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!)" before updating the post to announce she'll be signing off for a little while.
"Update: taking a social media break. Again," she wrote. "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."
Check out the announcement below.
The "Back to You" singer has thicker skin than most, which she most recently proved by donning bejeweled letters spelling out "UGLY" in her hair during New York Fashion Week. Though she never publicly confirmed it, the statement was most likely in response to fashion designer Stefano Gabbana, of Dolce & Gabbana, who called Selena "ugly" on social media months ago.
