Selena Gomez is not letting the Internet ruin her joy.
While celebrating the launch of her new platform, Wondermind, during an April 4 appearance on Good Morning America, the "Let Somebody Go" singer, 29, revealed that staying off the Internet has improved her mental health.
"I haven't been on the Internet in 4-and-a-half years," she said. "It has changed my life completely. I am happier, I am more present, I connect more with people. I understand how powerful the Internet is, and in so many ways it's done the best things for the world. But for me, I get to my news that is actually important I get through people in my life."
The Only Murders in the Building actress—who has been candid about her bipolar diagnosis, depression and anxiety—has always been open about her struggles with social media.
The Rare Beauty founder herself trying to fulfill beauty standards that were unrealistic, including not wanting to be seen without makeup on. After finding her confidence, she told the publication, she "created a system" so that she wouldn't have access to her social media passwords.
"The unnecessary hate and comparisons went away once I put my phone down," she told InStyle. "I'll have moments where that weird feeling will come back, but now I have a much better relationship with myself."
Now, Selena is using Wondermind to push the conversation of mental health forward, telling GMA that she wants the platform "to be a community and a space for people to feel like they're OK—that they're not alone."
