Popular singer and actress, Selena Gomez has disclosed that she has not used the internet in over four years despite having 300 million followers on her verified Instagram page.
The 29-year-old celeb said she has been off the web for four-and-a-half years and hasn’t been keeping up with what is going on online to protect her mental health.
According to her, she gets any information she needs from people around her and doesn’t need to be online, and she feels happier.
Speaking in an interview on Good Morning America, Selena said,
“I am happier, I am more present, I connect more with people. I understand how powerful the internet is, and in so many ways it’s done the best things for the world.
“But for me, I get to my news that is actually important I get through people in my life.”
The “lose you to love you” singer who grew up in the spotlight as she started acting and singing at a young age, said she had to leave the internet to avoid constantly being in the public eye.
She added that her assistant manages her social media accounts, including her IG page which has more followers than Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and even Beyoncé.
“I don’t have it on my phone, so there’s no temptation,” she added.
