From her early beginnings as a Disney Channel star, to her successful music career, Gomez has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. Her ability to connect with fans on a personal level through her heartfelt lyrics and genuine personality has earned her a place as one of the most influential pop stars of her generation. With her philanthropic efforts and commitment to using her platform for social causes, Gomez has shown that her impact extends far beyond the entertainment industry. However, it now appears as if Selena Gomez may be reducing her platform reach.

The Wizards of Waverly Place star recently took to TikTok to let her fans know that she was taking a break from social media following weeks of body shaming and reports about her relationship with Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber.

In a heartfelt video posted to TikTok, she addressed her feelings and provided reasoning for leaving social media. She said:

“I’m so blessed. I have the best friends, the best fans in the whole world. And I just couldn’t be happier. I’m good. I love who I am, I don’t care. I’m big, I’m not. I don’t care. I love who I am. I’m gonna be taking a second from social media because this is a little silly. And I’m 30. I’m too old for this.”


The 30-year-old star has been taking medication for Lupus which has affected her weight. This caused a lot of fans to body shame. Gomez even responded to her body shaming by explaining the reason behind her weight but it did little to stop the hurtful comments.

This will not be the first time that Selena Gomez will be taking a step back from social media. She made her return to Instagram this year after handing it off to her management team.

As of writing this article, Selena’s TikTok is inactive but her Instagram account is still up. We will have to wait and see if she will deactivate all her social media accounts. Stay tuned to Thirsty For News as we bring you similar stories.
