Here's Why Selena Gomez Has Made Her Instagram Private
The most followed person on Instagram has just made her profile private.
That's right, quietly in the night, Selena Gomez switched her account to top secret...unless of course you were one of the 130 million people already following her.
The 25-year-old singer is sending a clear message - if you're not a fan of hers already, she doesn't want your follow. But why?
Last week Billboard magazine honoured her with a cover and a feature article that covered everything from her breakup with The Weeknd to her reconciliation with ex Justin Bieber. Days later she accepted Billboard's Woman Of The Year award, and even posted multiple times from the ceremony.
So everything is all sweet then? Yeh, nah.
Yesterday Sel took to her Insta stories to express her disappointment over one particular part of the article, calling them out for including a casual chat she had in her home. And she's claiming they really twisted her words.
This is the excerpt from the article:
"There’s a five-foot teddy bear sprawled across the kitchen floor in Selena Gomez's North Hollywood home. “I know, I know,” says Gomez, rolling her eyes, acknowledging that the stuffed animal doesn't quite blend with the trio of armchairs nestled in the inviting, marble-accented nook. “It was a gift, and at first I thought, ‘This is so ridiculous, I can’t wait until I give it away to another person.’”
But Gomez, 25, hasn't let go of it -- yet."
Whilst we don't think it's the most damning thing ever written about a celeb, it didn't sit well with Selena and she gave the author a dressing down.
Selena Gomez isn’t mad at billboard for saying she’s ambivalent about woody Allen’s rape allegations. She mad at them for saying she wanted to throw out her teddy bear

"Never will I let another human guess my words ever again. Or invite them into my home," she wrote. "That is so hurtful. The most 'ridiculous' part of that is no one knowing my heart when I say things."

She then posted (and deleted) an Instagram story saying she needed "some alone time."

It's obvious that Selena is hurting after making herself vulnerable and we will be the first to say that she's probably been burnt by the media many times before this. But unfortunately fame is a double edge sword, and chastising the media who also helps you to become successful is an age old debate.
Given her tumultuous past we hope Selena can continue to surround herself with voices of reason and an unwavering support system.
