Recently, singer Selena Gomez said goodbye in a live video before deleting her TikTok account with more than 47 million followers.
” I’m so happy and blessed to have the best friends and fans in the world,” Selena said. I couldn’t be any happier. I’m fine and love myself. I will stop using social media. I’m 30 years old and too old to use it. But I still love you very much. See you soon. I will pause everything .”
After the above confided words, Selena deleted her TikTok account but her Instagram account is still in a normal state. Before deleting her TikTok account, Selena told Vanity Fair earlier this month that although she doesn’t like social networks, she has been interested in TikTok recently.
Selena’s move comes after the scandal involving Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber (Justin Bieber’s wife). Specifically, Selena publicly defended her best friend Taylor after a video posted by a user on TikTok showed Hailey expressing a sarcastic attitude when hearing Taylor’s name on the program Drop the Mic. Previously, in a 2016 interview, Hailey hinted that she did not like Taylor’s close friends (including Selena).
In addition, recently, Kylie Jenner also denied that she and Hailey bullied Selena. For her part, Selena responded to Kylie: ” Agree with Kylie. All this fuss is meaningless. I’m a fan of Kylie .”
In fact, this isn’t the first time Selena has announced she’s stopped using social media. In 2019, she announced to delete the Instagram app because malicious comments under the post made her depressed. However, by last month, she was using Instagram again.
On February 23, Selena surpassed Kylie to become the most followed woman on Instagram. Specifically, she currently has 381 million followers, surpassing Kylie’s 380 million figure. Four years ago, she was once called the “Instagram Queen” before being usurped by singers Ariana Grande and Kylie Jenner years later.
In addition to artistic activities, Selena is also known as an entrepreneur. In the summer of 2020, she launched the cosmetics company Rare Beauty. The brand quickly enjoyed initial success, including $60 million in profits and 3 million Instagram followers.
One of the main reasons for Rare Beauty’s success is that the products are all under $30. This has attracted more customers, not just Selena’s fans.
However, Selena said she was worried that Rare Beauty would fail. “ I think Rare Beauty has defied all standards when it comes to making products accessible to everyone,” she told People. However, I used to fear that I would not be able to sell. This is a big risk and challenge that worries me .”
But contrary to Selena’s worries, Rare Beauty has achieved success and gradually gained a foothold in the cosmetics industry.
