Selena Gomez is taking a step back from social media.
In a TikTok live on February 23, the singer reveals that she’s taking a break from the apps. The announcement comes shortly after she dethroned Kylie Jenner as the most followed woman on Instagram.
“I’m very happy, I’m so blessed,” Selena said after hitting the major milestone. “I have the best friends, the best fans in the whole world. I just couldn’t be happier.”
“Selena Gomez has officially surpassed Kylie Jenner in Instagram followers,” Pop Crave reported. ‘She becomes the most-followed female celebrity on the platform.”

The Rare Beauty founder announced she was taking a break from social media after becoming embroiled in some alleged online drama over the most unexpected thing. After Gomez shared a TikTok video explaining that she had accidentally laminated her brows too much, both Jenner and Hailey Bieber, her longtime ex-boyfriend’s wife, were pictured on their Instagram stories, zooming in on their brows, with the caption “this was an accident?” which, according to SG fans is major shade toward Selena.
However, Gomez and Bieber have spoken out to deny there’s any beef between the two. Even Jenner responded to the mess, calling it “a reach.”
It makes logical that Gomez would want to take another social media break. She has recently experienced a lot. Gomez disclosed in a recent interview with Vanity Fair that she only used TikTok and had delegated management of all her other social media profiles to her assistant.
“People can call me ugly or stupid, and I’m like, ‘Whatever.’ But these people get detailed,” Gomez said regarding online trolls. “They write paragraphs that are so specific and mean. I would constantly be crying. I constantly had anxiety… I couldn’t do it anymore. It was a waste of my time.”
Selena Gomez reveals on a short TikTok Live that she’ll be “taking a second from social media” after commenting on videos about Hailey Bieber and Kylie Jenner.
