Gomez has revealed in the past that she limits her time on Instagram, but she doesn't want to ever completely quit since it allows her to connect with fans.

"I feel for people, and I think that's what kind of keeps me in check, to be honest," she previously told The Hollywood Reporter. "I think I can be a little reckless with my emotions and having conversations with young people, women who are going through divorces or going through chemo — it's not just about me, and I'm fully aware of that."

"I will just always cherish it. It's a big responsibility, though," the "Single Soon" vocalist added of curating her account. "It's a little scary."

The Rare Beauty founder did once delete the app in 2018 after her breakup from on-off ex Justin Bieber.

"I had just gotten my heart broken. I didn’t need to see what everyone was doing," she shared. "Then there were those moments of not feeling positive about how I looked because of what I’d see on Instagram. 'Wow, I wish my body looked like that.'"

Gomez noted she also had body image issues due to growing up in the spotlight.

"None of the sample sizes were fitting, and that would make me feel embarrassed," she recalled. "Although how unrealistic is it to expect a normal woman’s body not to change?"
