Los Angeles, CA — Sheesh Selena, you obviously meant that with every fiber of your bean!
Several days back, out of the blue clear sky, Selena Gomez went on her Instagram and unfollowed close to 300 accounts — which included the likes of Demi Lovato and Gigi Hadid (both of whom she spent the New Year’s holiday with), Camila Cabello (who she publicly said she was a huge fan of) and even Theresa Mingus (her personal assistant)!
The primary question here is: “Why would she do that though?” Gomez took it as far as commenting “FIRE” on a swimsuit photo of Lovato’s, just before she unfollowed her! Gomez even revealed in a 2017 interview, that she does not know the password to her own IG account and that it’s ‘in the hands of her assistant’ (Theresa Mingus); if that’s the case however, why would Mingus unfollow herself? Things are just not adding up here.
Nonetheless . . . Gomez is now following only 37 accounts on her IG page, and the bulk of them are companies and fan pages! As for the actual individuals she’s presently following, the list goes: Taylor Swift, Jessica Alba, Amy Schumer, Justin Tranter, Julia Michaels, Kate Young, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Stuart Vevers, Francia Raisa, Connar Franklin, Brooke Fraser, and Jake Bailey.
And no, your eyes are not deceiving you—for Gomez is not following her boyfriend, Justin Bieber, and she’s (still) not following the woman that birthed her, Mandy Teefey. With that said, perhaps the unfollowing of her celeb pals and friend/assistant was nothing personal.
