At this point, it can rightly be said that Selena Gomez has become one of the most interesting celebrities on social media.
She gets into spats with other celebrities, she’s extremely candid about her love life, and — this is the most important part — she takes social media breaks of varying length.
Selena’s up-and-down relationship with social media is understandable and well-documented. In 2021, she claimed she didn’t watch it at all for a while.
In January of this year, Selena announced that she was taking a break from social media that lasted less than 24 hours. She got kind of roasted online for that – and, I mean, look, it was pretty funny.
So, Selena’s mother, Mandy Teefey – who is CEO of mental health platform Wondermind – recently gave an interview to Elite Daily in which she was asked about the length of Selena’s social media breaks, and whether Selena had said that certain durations made a difference for her.
“No,” she told the publication. “It’s just all she needs during this time.”
“I can go a week without looking at social media, and then I’ll go and try to catch up. But that’s just the time Selena needs, she gives herself.”
Elite Daily also asked Mandy if she and Selena had ever considered stepping away from social media together. “Yeah,” she replied. “You are more comfortable in your world and living in the moment.”
“It’s so much more peaceful.”
