Popular singer, Selena Gomez has said social media platforms are actually destroying our youths.

Selena recently revealed that Instagram, most especially, Instagram, keeps damaging the young ones on a daily basis.

According to her, if she had her way, she would avoid it completely.

She added that something must be done fast because it is denting the identity of the youths.

Her words, “I think I’d have a lot of people not liking me for saying yes (switching Instagram off). If I could find a balanced, happy medium that would be great, but I would be lying if I said that it is not destroying some of my generation, their identity.”

After appearing on the children’s television series Barney & Friends (2002–2004), she received wider recognition for her portrayal of Alex Russo on the Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel television series Wizards of Waverly Place, which aired from 2007 until 2012. Gomez also starred in the films Another Cinderella Story (2008), Princess Protection Program (2009), Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie (2009), Ramona and Beezus (2010), and Monte Carlo (2011). Thereafter, she focused on more mature roles in Spring Breakers (2012), Getaway (2013), The Fundamentals of Caring (2016), and The Dead Don’t Die (2019). She voices the character of Mavis in the Hotel Transylvania film franchise, and serves as an executive producer of the Netflix television drama series 13 Reasons Why (2017–present) and the Netflix documentary series Living Undocumented (2019).

Selena Marie Gomez was born in Grand Prairie, Texas on July 22, 1992 to Ricardo Joel Gomez and former stage actress Amanda Dawn “Mandy” Cornett. Gomez was named after Tejano singer and actress Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, who died in 1995. Her father is of Mexican descent while her mother, who was adopted, has some Italian ancestry. Regarding her Hispanic heritage, Gomez has stated, “My family does have Quinceañeras, and we go to the communion church. We do everything that’s Catholic, but we don’t really have anything traditional except [that we] go to the park and have barbecues on Sundays after church.” Gomez’s parents divorced when she was five years old, and she remained with her mother. Selena has two younger half-sisters: Gracie Elliot Teefey, through Amanda and her second husband Brian Teefey, and Victoria “Tori” Gomez, through Ricardo and his wife Sara. She earned her high-school diploma through homeschooling in May 2010.

Gomez was raised Catholic. When she was 13, she wanted a purity ring, and her dad went to the church and got it blessed. She stated, “He actually used me as an example for other kids. I’m going to keep my promise to myself, to my family and to God.” The singer stopped wearing the ring in 2010. Gomez later stated in 2017 that she did not like the term “religion” and that sometimes it “freaks me out”, adding “I don’t know if it’s necessarily that I believe in religion, as much as I believe in faith and a relationship with God.” In 2014, she said that she listened to Hillsong United’s song “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” before performing in the American Music Awards 2014. In 2016, she appeared at a Hillsong Young & Free concert in Los Angeles, leading worship by singing her song titled “Nobody”. When a fan asked her who the lyrics in “Nobody” referred to, Gomez answered on Twitter that the lyrics referred to God. She also covered Hillsong Worship’s song “Transfiguration” during her Revival Tour. In 2020, she revealed that she no longer attends Hillsong Church and stated that she doesn’t consider herself religious.
