Gigi Hadid Is the Latest Celeb to Leave Instagram
Well congratulations guys, weâ€™ve lost another one.
Like Kendall Jenner, Justin Bieber, and Kim Kardashian before her, Gigi Hadid just announced sheâ€™s taking a month-long break from social media, specifically Instagram, and thereâ€™s nothing you can do about it.
â€œIâ€™m not deleting my account,â€ Gigi told a crowd at a Reebok event. â€œIâ€™m just taking the app off my phone. Itâ€™s empowering, not just for people in the spotlight, for everyone.â€
As somebody who recently went on a social media cleanse,Â I have to disagree.
Going on a cleanse isnâ€™t actually empowering or even necessarily productive. I thought it would be, but it wasnâ€™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.
â€œAt the end of the day Iâ€™m choosing what Iâ€™m showing you. A lot of the world feels so entitled to other peoplesâ€™ 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, thatâ€™s great. But if youâ€™re going to be upset that I need to be human for a month, then maybe I donâ€™t want your follow anyway.â€
Don’t you just love it when celebrities get sassy?
Oh well, goodbye Gigi.
Have a nice cleanse â€” just don’t be surprised when it’s not all you hoped it would be.
