Selena Gomez says social media is

A performer with an extensive following on social media says that the platforms are unsafe.

"Social media has really been bad for my generation", Gomez, 26, told a news conference at Cannes on Wednesday, where the actress is promoting zombie movie "The Dead Don't Die" alongside actors Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton. It does scare me when you see how exposed these young boys and young girls are. Back in March, the star revealed: "I'm now in the studio and it's going really good". I noticed with me, I got kind of depressed looking at these people who look handsome and unbelievable, and it would just get me down a lot.

The film also stars Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Sara Driver, RZA, Selena Gomez, Austin Butler, Luka Sabbat and Tom Waits. Sharing pictures of blood bottles and bandages on her tummy, Ishita had written, "Recovering from surgery". She wrote, "Happy Mother's day Mom You've always been so strong and supported me in all my decisions, Specially in the past 1 month Always grateful for your blessings and support".
