    Selena Gomez Just Opened Up About Social Media, And It's Refreshingly Honest

    "I think it’s really hard to be a kid now, especially with social media."

    Ya'll know Selena Gomez (not a question). She's fierce, fabulous, and mega-talented, so it should be no surprise that she's the most followed celebrity on Instagram.

    In fact last September, Selena actually made history as the first person to ever reach 100 million followers.

    Because of her groundbreaking accomplishment, the "Bad Liar" singer was featured in Time's special project, "Firsts."

    Selena, who was labeled by Time as "The Tastemaker," opened up to the magazine about her relationship with social media.

    The singer continued:

    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.

    And she really does share a lot with her fans, such as late-night selfies...

    ...adorable couple photos with The Weeknd...

    ...special family moments...

    ...and priceless #TBT's.

    With over 126 million followers, all hail the Queen of Instagram!
