Selena Gomez explains social media hiatus

BANG! NEWS – Selena Gomez took a social media break because “it felt a little insensitive” to post anything too “joyful”.

The 28-year-old singer returned to Instagram on Wednesday as she explained her recent absence, which came during the coronavirus pandemic and amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

She told her followers: “Hey! I wanted to take some time to do a quick message for you guys because I haven’t been posting that much.

“I just wanted to let you know that I love you guys and I miss you and there’s so many exciting things coming up that I can’t wait to share with all of you.

“I just think at the beginning of this year, with everything going on, it felt a little insensitive to post things that may be a little just… joyful or celebratory, it was really hard for me.”

The Lose You to Love Me hitmaker revealed she would start posting again now after her hiatus.

She explained, “And, I’ve taken the time to learn, truly learn about what’s going on and I continue to make that my priority.

“But, just letting you know that I’m going to be a little bit more involved and I’m just sending more love and gonna show you some more of my personal stuff and what I have been doing.”
