‘I Went Through A Difficult Time Last Year And I just Can’t Stand Social Media’: Says Selena Gomez.

In August, Gomez, 24, took a career break after suffering from “anxiety, panic attacks and depression” due to her lupus diagnosis. At the same time that the superstar took off time to care for herself, her new Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why — which addresses serious topics including depression and suicide — was at the beginning of production.


“I was actually going through a really difficult time when they started production,” Gomez, who serves as an executive producer on the new drama, said Wednesday at a Netflix press event, The Hollywood Reporter reports. “I went away for 90 days and I actually met tons of kids in this place that we’re talking about with a lot of the issues that these characters are experiencing.”

During the singer and actress’ 90-day break, Gomez revealed that she gave up her phone for the three month period, which she described as “the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling.” Although Gomez has since returned to engaging with fans on Instagram, and holds the title of the most followed person on the photo-sharing app, she is still not too keen on social media.

“It’s hard right now. I can’t stand social media, I can’t stand what they’re looking at,” said Gomez. “I can’t stand what they think is reality and the show is real as it could possibly get.
