Selena Gomez wants people to cut down on social media

BANG! NEWS – Selena Gomez wants to see more people cut down on their social media use, because she believes it negatively impacts mental health.

The 27-year-old singer took a break from social media in September last year, and while she’s now back on Instagram, she said she doesn’t pay much attention to what other people post, as she’s “very happy” with living life in the moment.

She said, “I’m very happy with living my life and being present. Because that’s it.

“Similar to me posting a photo and walking away; for me that’s it. I will do a red carpet, I will do whatever; I don’t need to see it; I participated; I felt wonderful and that’s where the extent of it is. I don’t care to expose myself to everyone and hear what they have to say.”

And the Lose You To Love Me hitmaker wants more people to do the same, because she sees “so many beautiful girls and amazing different characters” who are being “demolished by an image that they’re trying to chase.”
