Selena Gomez isn't having it with Billboard Magazine. While profiling the international singing sensation in their Women of the Year issue, Billboard included some details about Gomez that she's apparently not too happy about, and in a since-deleted Instagram Story, she expressed her discontent by posting a screen cap of the offending article with the caption:
Never will I let another human guess my words ever again. Or invite them in my home. That is so hurtful. The most 'ridiculous' part of that is no one knowing my heart when I say things.
The lady doth protest too much? Gomez didn't stop there, and has now set her Instagram account - the most followed one in the universe - to private, meaning that only those following her can see her posts. And since that's currently 130 million people, Gomez is still not really private as much as she is sharing her account with over a third of the population of the United States. But still. Go get 'em girl.
The specific Billboard passage that seems to have Gomez's panties in a bunch references what could be considered her flippant attitude towards her fans:
There's a five-foot teddy bear sprawled across the kitchen floor in Selena Gomez's North Hollywood home. 'I know, I know,' says Gomez, rolling her eyes, acknowledging that the stuffed animal doesn't quite blend with the trio of armchairs nestled in the inviting, marble-accented nook. 'It was a gift, and at first I thought, This is so ridiculous, I can't wait until I give it away to another person.'
But Gomez, 25, hasn't let go of it — yet.
Do you think that Billboard crossed a line, or do you think Gomez still has a way to go until she's achieved the peace and serenity afforded by Hillsong Church? Spill in the comment below, and head to the gallery to see the bunched panties in question.
