Selena Gomez has unfollowed all of her celebrity friends on Instagram, what's the deal?
So, what’s the deal with Selena Gomez’s recent Instagram purge? Almost as soon as she said goodbye to the Jenner sisters at Coachella festival, Gomez stopped following them both on Instagram. It wasn’t just Kylie and Kendall Jenner who Selena decided to remove from her account, she also stopped following on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber (we ain’t complaining there), alleged BFF Taylor Swift (that one was a bit of a shock, we thought the pair were really close), fellow Spring Breakers Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel and Lily Collins. Either some serious celebrity beef went down at Coachella and we just don’t know about it, or Selena is taking care of some personal business.

While she may have unfollowed a whole host of fellow celebs, she also took it upon herself to remove all trace of Kylie and Kendall from her Instagram account. The trio had recently been hanging out at Coachella music festival, and had all been uploading pics to the social media site to show us all what a great time they were all having being hippies for the weekend...before heading back to their Beverly Hills mansions. Kylie still has her pics of Selena up on her account, so it looks like there’s no bad feelings, at least on one side.
Selena now officially follows nobody else on Instagram, but it’s OK, she still has around 8 million people who are following her. Selena recently completed a stint in rehab, following a high profile split (ish) with bad boy Canadian pop star Justin Bieber (a few years ago we never thought those words would all come in the same sentence). She’s recently been out and about, looking healthy and well, although it seems as though something is still bothering her. It’s a pretty extreme move to unfollow everyone on Instagram, as well as removing images which the whole world had already seen. Was it a statement or did Selena just not like those particular pics i.e. the ones which had the Jenner sisters in? Food for thought.

Since leaving rehab Selena has discussed peer pressure and her stint in rehab at the We Day event in California. “I”m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me, and some of them have and others haven’t. They pressure me: you gotta be sexy, you gotta be cute, you gotta be nice, you gotta be all these things…Until recently I had given into that pressure…I’ve learned from my mistakes.”
Perhaps Selena could envisage Kendall and Kylie becoming bad influences on her and thought it best to cut the girls out before she got back into her partying ways? It’s anyone’s guess.
