She said this while also revealing that she doesn’t even have the password to her Instagram or the app on her phone anymore.

Ever wondered what it feels like being the most followed person on Instagram? More than a little overwhelming, according to Selena Gomez.

The singer who has over 113 million followers on the picture sharing platform makes this revelation as she covers her first ever American Vogue looking perfect in every shot.

In her words, ‘As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out. It had become so consuming to me. It’s what I woke up to and went to sleep to. I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn’t want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about. I always end up feeling like shit when I look at Instagram. Which is why I’m kind of under the radar, ghosting it a bit.’

She said this while also revealing that she doesn’t even have the password to her Instagram or the app on her phone anymore.

She also opens up to the magazine on depression and feeling like she wasn’t enough for her fans.‘Tours are a really lonely place for me,’ she explains.

‘My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage.

‘Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable. I felt I wasn’t giving my fans anything, and they could see it—which, I think, was a complete distortion.

That fact freaked her out and now, she doesn’t even have the password to her IG account of the app according to her

‘I was so used to performing for kids. At concerts I used to make the entire crowd raise up their pinkies and make a pinky promise never to allow anybody to make them feel that they weren’t good enough.

‘Suddenly I have kids smoking and drinking at my shows, people in their 20s, 30s, and I’m looking into their eyes, and I don’t know what to say.

‘I couldn’t say, ‘Everybody, let’s pinky-promise that you’re beautiful!’ It doesn’t work that way, and I know it because I’m dealing with the same shit they’re dealing with.

‘What I wanted to say is that life is so stressful, and I get the desire to just escape it.

‘But I wasn’t figuring my own stuff out, so I felt I had no wisdom to share. And so maybe I thought everybody out there was thinking, This is a waste of time.’

She also revealed how her concert crowd changed over time and left her wondering how to deal with the change
