Selena Gomez has become the most-followed female celebrity on Instagram. The singer dethroned media and fashion mogul Kylie Jenner and now sits with 382 million followers, two million more than Jenner.

But, shortly after, Gomez announced that she is taking a break from Instagram.

Page Six reported that on Thursday, Gomez went live on TikTok saying, "I'm very happy, I'm so blessed. I have the best friends and the best fans in the whole world and I just couldn't be happier."

"I'm good, I love the way I am, I don't care," she added.

"And yeah, I'm gonna be taking a second from social media 'cause this is a little silly and I'm 30. I'm too old for this," she said further, adding, "I love you guys so much and I will see you guys sooner than later. I just have to take a break from everything."

This is not the first time that she would be taking a break from social media.

The singer has, in the past, on many occasions, taken a break from social media citing her mental health.

In 2014, she entered a mental health facility shortly after being diagnosed with lupus and later revealed she had also been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
