In 2019, the singer had occupied the same position, but when Ariana Grande published a photo with Kylie Jenner, she ended up enjoying the position. By early 2023, Kardashian dominated the platform and had around 380 million followers.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Selena Gomez said that even though she is the most followed person, she remains away from the social network due to comments that hurt her: “People can call me ugly or stupid and I’m like, whatever. But these people are detailed. They write paragraphs that are so specific and petty. I was constantly crying. I constantly had anxiety… I couldn’t do it anymore. It was a waste of time.”

The actress also said that because of this, she was able to organize a method for her team to post publications on the social network: “There are wonderful things about social media – connecting with fans, seeing how happy and excited they are and their stories . But usually that filters down [to me now]. I created a system. Everything I do I send to my assistant who publishes. As far as comments go, my team will gather some things that are encouraging.”
Currently, through a live on TikTok, Selena Gomez announced that she will be absent from the platform for a while. The singer reported that she only has the application on her cell phone and that she uses it as a way to interact and connect with her followers through calls and videos.
