Selena Gomez takes back her title as the most-followed woman on Instagram, knocking Kylie Jenner off the top spot. This is not the first time Gomez has held this title, but after taking a break from the platform, she has made a strong return, with both women currently boasting nearly 400 million followers as of Thursday.
Selena Gomez recently shared a photo of herself enjoying a drink with the caption, “I deleted this one time because I thought maybe it was too much but eh.” However, the singer has previously explained to Vanity Fair that she found Instagram toxic, and removed the app from her phone. Instead, her team now manages her account and posts on her behalf to help prevent negative comments from affecting her mental health.
Despite Gomez’s successful return to Instagram, she has announced in a TikTok Live video that she will be taking another break from social media. While there are many positive aspects to social media, such as connecting with fans and hearing their stories, the negativity and criticism can take a toll on mental health.
Fans of Selena Gomez have flooded her latest post with positive comments, showing their support for her and her decision to prioritize her well-being. It’s clear that while social media can be a powerful tool for connection and communication, it’s important to take breaks and step back when necessary to protect one’s mental health.
