Gigi Hadid Is the Latest Celeb to Leave Instagram
Well congratulations guys, we’ve lost another one.
Like Kendall Jenner, Justin Bieber, and Kim Kardashian before her, Gigi Hadid just announced she’s taking a month-long break from social media, specifically Instagram, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
“I’m not deleting my account,” Gigi told a crowd at a Reebok event. “I’m just taking the app off my phone. It’s empowering, not just for people in the spotlight, for everyone.”
As somebody who recently went on a social media cleanse, I have to disagree.
Going on a cleanse isn’t actually empowering or even necessarily productive. I thought it would be, but it wasn’t. It just gave more more time to procrastinate by watching TV and riding around in my car.
But just like cutting your own hair or buying a pair of jelly sandals, going on a cleanse is a mistake that every woman needs to make for herself at least once.
“At the end of the day I’m choosing what I’m showing you. A lot of the world feels so entitled to other peoples’ lives, which is so crazy. I’m going to take a break when I feel like it, and when I come back and share it with you, if you want to be supportive and still follow me, that’s great. But if you’re going to be upset that I need to be human for a month, then maybe I don’t want your follow anyway.”
Don’t you just love it when celebrities get sassy?
Oh well, goodbye Gigi.
Have a nice cleanse — just don’t be surprised when it’s not all you hoped it would be.
