Selena Gomez Talks Instagram with 'THR': 'It Wasn't My Goal to Be the Most Followed Person'

Selena Gomez and Kevin Hart pose with Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom on THR‘s brand new cover.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her thought process behind an Instagram photo: “It comes in a moment when I capture something happening, and I go, ‘Oh, that would be great for Instagram. I should post it.’ I know it’s boring, but that’s genuinely what I do.”

On when to post a selfie: “I try to find a good balance of just being 100 percent myself and knowing when to post a really good selfie with good lighting.”

On becoming Instagram’s most followed person: “It wasn’t my goal to be the most followed person. It’s my favorite social platform.”

FYI: Selena is wearing Jennifer Fisher jewelry.

    I wish celebs were a bit more honest about their instagram, I don’t follow Selena but I just looked through it and it’s pretty clear that all of the photos she posts are taken by professional photographers and then uploaded. Maybe one or two are actual candids she just snapped, but even those are probably just a photographer taking a good candid photo.
