Selena Gomez’s Mom Shuts Down Body Shamers After Revealing Near-Fatal Illness

The “Crowded Room” singer recently opened up about why she decided to go on a social media cleanse.

“To be honest, I was just, like, ‘This is too much information,'” Selena told WWD in October. “This is too much of my personal life spread out everywhere, and it just felt uncontrollable. I felt like my thoughts and everything I was consuming revolved around a million different other people in the world saying good things and bad things.”

She continued, “And I just thought, ‘Why would I—I don’t get anything from it. Nothing is giving me life.’ And I just snapped, and I was over it.”

While the Only Murders in the Building star admitted that social media is a “wonderful way to stay connected,” she explained that she still has boundaries in place.

“I’m completely unaware of, actually, what’s going on in pop culture, and that makes me really happy,” Selena said. “And maybe that doesn’t make everybody else happy, but for me, it’s really saved my life.”
