Selena Gomez Points Fans To God As She Leads Worship At Hillsong
Disney star turned pop-singer, 25-year-old Selena Gomez is tan from the spotlight, but despite her stardom, she has not been immune to struggle. After having launched a solo music career, selling over 7 million albums and 22 million singles, she abruptly ended two tours, retreated to a private life of solitude, and wrote her first Christian hit single “Nobody.” Read on to find out why!

On Instagram she’s a hit. She thanks her 110 million Instagram followers (a.k.a. “Selenators”) for their passionate support, which allows her to do what she loves to do every day. Her fans love her down-to-Earth, “I’m-just-like-you” posts, which range from a picture of her leading worship at a Hillsong concert to comments about a Judah Smith sermon.
But Selena isn’t just putting on a show for her fans. The very things they like most about her–authenticity, groundedness, and maturity–are the motivation behind her recent retreat from the limelight.
In an interview with Vogue, Selena revealed that she deleted Instagram from her phone and purposely forgot her password because she hated the emotional rollercoaster of likes, dislikes, and comments; when she realized she was addicted to Instagram and it was controlling her life, she distanced herself from it.
