Selena is gracing the cover for being the first to hit 100 million followers on instagram and the influential power that comes with that. Selena is the most followed person on instagram and can make upwards of $550,000 from ads.
Selena opened up about how it can be difficult to feel good about yourself when you’re constantly comparing the highlights of your life to others on social media.
She went on to say – “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.”
Selena also opened up about being raised by her mother who was 16 years old when she had her. Selena explained their close relationship saying QUOTE –“…we kind of grew up together. When I started working, my mom was the person in my life that helped guide me through most of that. Everything that I am has become a little bit of what my mom’s gone through. She had the ability of making me feel like I was still capable of doing everything I wanted.” The two of them now co-produce 13 Reasons Why together.
Selena shared her Time cover on instagram along with a pinned letter that says QUOTE – “Sometimes it’s incredibly difficult to wake up every day knowing there is so much going on in the world. At times I feel selfish, I ask why, I ask how can this change? Will it actually ever change? I try to contribute my heart before anything because it can be so easy to lose the desire to have hope when sometimes all I want to be is angry. When I read about the beautiful women who wake up consciously every day to make a change, it inspires me to want to do so much more. Not really sure how I got so lucky @time but thank you for highlighting the power of what we can and will always strive to be. I believe in the goodness in the land of the living. I hope this is just the beginning of more change.”
