Renowned singer-actress Selena Gomez has opted for a temporary break from social media, citing a desire to focus on more meaningful aspects of life. The decision comes in the wake of recent attention surrounding a viral video from the Golden Globe Awards 2024, where Gomez was seen engaging in light-hearted banter with close friends Taylor Swift and Keleigh Sperry.
In a recent Instagram stories post, Gomez shared an endearing video featuring her boyfriend Benny Blanco enjoying time with children, accompanied by a caption that read, “I’m off social media for a while. I’m focusing on what really matters.”
The Golden Globes incident involved a video capturing Gomez and Swift in conversation during an ad break, leading to online speculation about the content of their discussion, particularly regarding actor Timothee Chalamet and Kylie Jenner. However, sources close to Gomez later refuted the claims, emphasizing the private nature of the exchange.
Addressing the speculation, Gomez clarified in the comments section of an E! News Instagram post, stating, “Nooooo, I told Taylor about two of my friends who hooked up. Not that that’s anyone’s business.”
In a separate video, Timothee Chalamet dismissed any notion of discord between Gomez and Kylie Jenner, assuring that everything was amicable. The speculation arose from a scenario where fans inferred that Selena had requested a selfie with Timothee, and Kylie declined.
This brief hiatus from social media is not the first for Selena Gomez. In November 2023, she temporarily left Instagram, expressing a need to step back amid controversies related to her comments on the Israel-Palestine conflict. During that time, Gomez stated, “I am taking a break and deleting my Instagram. I’m done. I do not support any of what’s going on.” She returned to the platform a few days later.
Gomez’s decision to take breaks from social media reflects a personal choice to prioritize well-being and meaningful connections. As she steps away from the digital sphere once again, fans can anticipate her return while respecting her choice to focus on what truly matters in the present moment.
