On April 8, Gomez posted a photo in which she looked glam in a leather jacket and glittery cat eye sunglasses. The Only Murders in the Building star wore her dark tresses swept up in a topknot and further accessorized the look with hoop earrings, a nameplate necklace and some cool rings.
She wrote in the caption of the post, “They say go socialize, I said OK. Lasted 20 min = success.”
As she explained in a 2021 interview with WWD, “To be honest, I was just, like, this is too much information. This is too much of my personal life spread out everywhere, and it just felt uncontrollable. I felt like my thoughts and everything I was consuming revolved around a million different other people in the world saying good things and bad things. And I just thought, why would I—I don’t get anything from it. Nothing is giving me life. And I just snapped, and I was over it."
She told Good Morning America that the decision to never fully log on has “changed her life completely.”
“I am happier, I am more present, I connect more with people,” she shared. “I understand how powerful the internet is, and in so many ways it’s done the best things for the world. But for me, I get to my news — that is actually important — I get through people in my life.”
