Good vibes ONLY.

After a weekend full of Instagram stories, posts, and clothing giveaways, Selena Gomez announced she's taking another break from social media with an important message that everyone should remember when posting on any platform.

Selena, who was previously insulted by Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana on Instagram, has taken breaks from social media before. She previously told Elle, she doesn't even have the Instagram app on her phone because "it's not real." She explained that she's not hiding from anything and just wants some time to live in the moment.

"I'm not trying to hide," she said. "That's my life. I'm living it the way I want to live it. But it's about making a conscious effort—if I can have a moment to be with my friends, I'll take that time. So I don't have any of it. I had to make that decision."

Hopefully taking a break will leave her feeling refreshed and filled with ~good vibes.~
