There’s no question Selena Gomez has made an indelible mark on the entertainment, fashion and beauty industries. Now the star is being recognized by Time Magazine as one of 46 “Women Who Are Changing the World” for the next-level impact she’s had on her fans.
The 25-year-old singer was given the distinction for being the first person to reach 100 million followers on Instagram, though in an interview with the mag she notes the gift and the curse of social media.
“I think it’s really hard to be a kid now, especially with social media,” the “Fetish” singer told Time. “It’s already difficult to get up every day and just feel good about yourself without seeing the highlights of everyone else’s life. 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… I hope that they know that strength doesn’t mean that you have to put on a facade. Strength is being vulnerable.”
Other power women to make the list include Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and Rita Moreno. Not bad company, Selena!
The Coach spokesperson shared her cover on Instagram with the #Selenators that got her there.
