Selena Gomez caused a stir among her fans when she took to TikTok and hinted at potential drama involving herself, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Bieber. However, after announcing her departure from the platform, the singer returned only a few hours later. Cosmopolitan reported that Gomez even went live on TikTok to explain why she decided to leave before eventually deactivating her account on Thursday afternoon.
Gomez took a short hiatus from TikTok by deactivating her account, but it didn’t last long as a fan account noticed the change and alerted others. She has yet to post any new content as of Friday morning, indicating that her social media break is still in place. During a TikTok live on Thursday, Gomez thanked her fans and friends before revealing her decision to step back from social media. She shared that she feels too old for it, but reassured her followers that she will return in the near future.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Selena Gomez opened up about her use of social media, stating that TikTok is the only platform she currently has on her phone. According to her, TikTok provides a more welcoming environment compared to other social media sites. However, while there are advantages to using social media such as connecting with fans and sharing stories, Gomez has implemented a system where all her content is sent to her assistant for posting. Her team also drafts positive and supportive responses to comments. In recent developments, Selena has become the most followed woman on Instagram, surpassing Kylie Jenner.
