“They’re not aware of the news or anything going on. It’s selfish I don’t wanna say selfish because it feels rude but it’s dangerous for sure. I think our world is going through a lot, obviously. But for my generation, specifically, social media has been terrible,” she said.
She went on to state that it is “impossible” at this point to make it safe, when asked what she could do with her influence concerning social media.
She akso reveaked that she tries everythibg possible to avoid putting unnecessary pressure on her fans.
“I’m very grateful I have the platform in any way, I can still share things I’m passionate about. I don’t do a lot of pointless pictures. I like to be intentional with it.”
“I see these young girls, I’ll meet them and they’re just devastated dealing with bullying and not being able to have their own voice” she said.
Gomez also called on people to take breaks in social media use:
“It can be great in moments, but I would just be careful and allow yourself some time limits when you should use it and when not.”
