The Wolves singer has been inching her way back into the public eye over the past few months, and returned to platforms like Instagram in January.
Gomez, who has more than 150 million Instagram followers, has also posted less on social media than many other celebs amid her struggles. "Do you think I should wear red on a red carpet", asked Deepika.
A performer with an extensive following on social media says that the platforms are risky. "It's selfish - I don't wanna say selfish because it feels rude - but it's unsafe for sure". I noticed with me, I got kind of depressed looking at these people who look lovely and awesome, and it would just get me down a lot.
"I think it's pretty impossible to make it safe at this point", Gomez said. "I'm grateful I have the platform".
"I also don't do a lot of pointless pictures. I like to be intentional with it". It just scares me. I'll see these young girls at meet and greets. I see these young girls ... It can be great in moments. I mean, you still can't tell me who the hell "Selena Gomez" is - but Gomez, as he calls her, "I really like".
In late 2018, Gomez revealed to Vogue Magazine that part of her therapy involved stepping away from her popular social platforms. "She's a remarkable person".
"Please stop reading into things so much and making something out of nothing". Back in March, the star revealed: "I'm now in the studio and it's going really good".
It is that time of the year again when we have our favourite stars glide down one of the most prestigious red carpets in the world.
The singer's appearance at Cannes comes just a week after she skipped out on the 2019 Met Gala. A study released in 2017 showed that there has been a dramatic rise in teen suicides since 2011 - a rise, the study suggested, that could be linked to social media use, cyberbullying, and the temptation most social media users have to portray their lives as "perfect" and "Insta-worthy".
