After stirring up some excitement among fans and making news with her TikTok comments about potential drama involving herself, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Bieber, Selena Gomez decided to leave the platform. However, she returned just a few hours later. According to Cosmopolitan, Gomez even went live on TikTok to explain her choice to leave before deactivating her account on Thursday afternoon.
Gomez briefly deactivated her TikTok account, but it was quickly reactivated a few hours later after a fan account noticed the change. As of Friday morning, she has not posted any new content, indicating that her social media break is still ongoing. In a TikTok live on Thursday, Gomez expressed her gratitude for her fans and friends before announcing her decision to take a break from social media, stating that she felt too old for it. Despite this, she assured her followers that she will be back soon.
During an interview with Vanity Fair published this month, Gomez discussed her social media use, revealing that TikTok was the only platform she had on her phone. She explained that she found it to be a less hostile environment compared to other social media sites. While there are benefits to social media, such as connecting with fans and sharing their stories, Gomez has created a system where everything she does is sent to her assistant for posting. As for comments, her team puts together positive and encouraging responses. In recent news, Gomez has surpassed Jenner to become the most followed woman on Instagram.
