We're just going to go right ahead and give Selena Gomez the title of social media queen. She has millions of followers across her Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts and although we like to think of this as a way she's sharing part of her life with us that she wants everyone to see, Sel revealed in a new interview that she simply uses social media as a way to get her side of the story out there. Is she constantly being written about, especially since so much about her personal life has become public knowledge, so she sees this as her way of setting the record straight.
“I’m utilizing social media right now because of my age and because, to be honest, everybody else in the world was talking about me, so I wanted a say,” Selena explained. “I honestly had to, because I didn’t really expect my life to be as public as it was. Is this going to destroy me or make me? I still have to make that choice on a daily basis."
As much as we love seeing her drop some stunning selfies on us, it's so interesting to see that she views her social media presence as giving herself back some power and control over her life. That is truly something special, but she one day plans to just ditch it all.
“In a few years, I’ll give all of it up," she said.
And this is why Selena is the greatest. She does what she feels is best for herself, and that is always commendable.
