Pop star and actress Selena Gomez has been through a lot.
After taking a sudden hiatus in the middle of her world tour, Selena checked herself into rehab following her issues of anxiety and depression linked to her lupus condition.
And while she’s making a strong comeback, it’s still a process. After admitting that she was addicted to Instagram, the 24-year-old star revealed that she reads the comments — at the expense of heartbreak.
“You can’t avoid it sometimes. I delete the app from my phone at least once a week. You fixate on the negative ones. They’re not like, ‘You’re ugly.’ It’s like they want to cut to your soul. Imagine all the insecurities that you already feel about yourself and having someone write a paragraph pointing out every little thing — even if it’s just physical.”
Hence the need for her to delete the app once a week, because of trolls.
Despite her weekly cleanses, Selena is still the most-followed person on Instagram, with over 114 million followers.
Stay strong, Sel!
