Selena Gomez (AKA the reigning ~queen~ of Instagram) was recently honoured by Time magazine by appearing on the cover star of their "Firsts" series as she is the first person to reach 100 million followers.
During her interview, she discusses being grateful that she is a part of the social media generation.
"I am glad I grew up in the time that I did. I think it’s really hard to be a kid now, especially with social media. I can’t imagine what it would be like to grow up with that. It’s already difficult to get up every day and just feel good about yourself without seeing the highlights of everyone else’s life."
She also opens up about sharing her most vulnerable moments with her fans and why it's important to be honest about your insecurities.
"That’s why I like being vulnerable with my fans on social media. I like that they’ve seen my mistakes. I try to use that as a way to connect with them. That’s all I can do. I hope that they know that strength doesn’t mean that you have to put on a facade. Strength is being vulnerable."
