Selena Gomez returns to social media after three-month hiatus, thanks fans for love and support
Selena Gomez finally breaks her silence and rejoins social media after being out of the spotlight for almost three months now.
Selena Gomez is finally back on Instagram after almost three months of being away from the spotlight. After finishing her treatment post being hospitalized last year, the 26-year-old singer broke her silence on Monday afternoon.
The 'Back to You' singer took to Instagram to share a very emotional and heartfelt post along with three new pictures. She wrote below it, "It’s been a while since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support..."
Upon completing her treatment in December, she has been spending a lot of time with her family and loved ones including her BFF Taylor Swift. Just before Christmas, Selena was seen enjoying a snowy vacay with her friends and was also spotted hiking in LA and taking pilates classes.
As reported by PEOPLE, a source shared, "Selena’s feeling much better and looking forward to getting back to normalcy. She’s spending time with friends and family. Selena looks amazing. Since finishing her treatment, she is surrounding herself with friends. She seems very happy," the source continued.
Gomez had to be hospitalized twice last year in October and both times were because of a low white blood cell count which tends to affect kidney transplant patients. While on her second visit, Selena suffered from a major panic attack and headed to a treatment center located on the East Coast.
A source added, "She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point." Selena had opted to undergo dialectical behavior therapy which is a therapy method that is designed to help identify, change negative thinking and behavioral patterns.
Last year in September, Selena took to social media to share an image of herself along with the caption, "Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) Update: taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember — negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi."

Alright. Speaking from my heart for over an hour to someone who puts those thoughts into paid words can be hard for me. The older I get the more I want my voice to be mine. This is all apart of my work within an industry that’s been around longer than all of us have been. The purpose of my interview was three fold. My work with A21, my new collection with Coach, and some new music. As I’m aware there will always be interests in one’s personal life because that’s the pace of our ‘social’ generation. I’m grateful for my position and I will always find ways to make my job more about others and giving back— all while having the best time with my music, fashion, film and my love for learning about the world that I’m eager to tap into more and more. Church is a name for something far more personal. There’s always agenda seeking information on such a subject and I understand why. Rarely do I mention church (and I didn’t) but I’ll always feel comfortable talking about my values and beliefs. I respect that from everyone and anyone. I understand that reporters are working to grab the attention of a reader, however I will always work to ensure that what is public represents my truth. I’m a bit bummed but rarely surprised. Y’all know me and my heart. I can’t help it. So I’ll post some of MY photos from the collection and work with A21. My heart. And maybe edit my actual lyrics as you will all hear it soon 😊 I love you guys to the moon and back. For more information on the work I do with A21 please, please visit link in my bio. So much more on that soon!
