Selena Gomez posted a video on Instagram, sharing an update with her fans on why she had taken some time away from her social media platforms.
After going silent on social media for some time, Selena came back to her fans with a video explaining herself on Wednesday. “I wanted to take some time to do a quick message for you guys because I haven’t been posting that much,” she began.
“I just wanted to let you know that I love you guys and I miss you and there’s so many exciting things coming up that I can’t wait to share with all of you. I just think at the beginning of this year, with everything going on, it felt a little insensitive to post things that may be a little just joyful or celebratory.
It was really hard for me and I’ve taken the time to learn, truly learn, about what’s going on and I continue to make that my priority,” she added, before she went on to tell fans that she would start posting again soon.
“But, just letting you know that I’m going to be a little bit more involved and I’m just sending more love and gonna show you some more of my personal stuff and what I have been doing. But, thank you for being here, and thank you for supporting me always and I will talk to you soon,” she concluded.
The 28-year-old singer also made a return to her official Twitter account, addressing her fans directly and sharing a sentimental post, writing: “Missing you guys a lot today,” alongside a set of photos.
Prior to her recent Instagram message, Selena was amongst a group of celebrities who handed over their Instagram handles to Black community leaders amid the Black Lives Matter movement in an effort to educate viewers about important and timely issues in the fight against systemic racism.
The “Good For You” songstress turned her account over to people including actor and activist Kendrick Sampson, civil rights activist and author Ruby Bridges, and Alicia Garza, one of the co-creators of Black Lives Matter.
In a lengthy post, Selena appreciated a total of 12 individuals for their time before she urged her 180 million followers to continue educating themselves and vote. All of their conversations remain available to view on her Instagram Story highlights.
