Selena Gomez: Returning to Social Media and Avoiding ‘Mean’ Girls

Selena Gomez has purposefully avoided social media for the past four years, instead allowing her assistant to post on her behalf. She verified to Time that she is now back on her channels and posting the majority of her own stuff. Gomez claimed that she restricts her time on Instagram and TikTok to safeguard her mental health—and it appears that she uses the same energy in real life. When it comes to friends, “it’s a cliché, but girls are mean,” Gomez admitted. “It’s a strange competition, being in the cool females area—and then I’m just kind of there. I’m not sure where I’m supposed to belong.”
