In 2019, Selena Gomez revealed that she'd deleted social media apps off her phone. Now, three years later, she's never put them back on -- and the star says that drastic move was a lifesaver for her.

Speaking to Women's Wear Daily, Selena says, "I do all of my posts through just texting my assistant and the caption that I want...that’s a huge, significant part of why I feel like I’ve been as healthy as I have been.”

“I’m completely unaware of actually what’s going on in pop culture, and that makes me really happy," the Rare Beauty mogul adds. "And maybe that doesn’t make everybody else happy, but for me, it’s really saved my life.”

“To be honest, I was just, like, ‘This is too much information,’” the mental health advocate continues. “'This is too much of my personal life spread out everywhere,' and it just felt uncontrollable. I felt like my thoughts and everything I was consuming revolved around a million different other people in the world saying good things and bad things."

"I just thought, ‘...I don’t get anything from it. Nothing is giving me life,’" she explains. "And I just snapped, and I was over it."

As she prepares to turn 30 next year, Selena says not being obsessed with people's comments has served her well.

"It feels good to finally not care as much as I did. I think of how many years I wasted just caring so much about what people thought, and it was just suffocating," she tells WWD, adding, "What I love so far about getting older is that I’m starting to just really be happy with who I am, know what I want and know what I don’t want.”

Last week, both Ed Sheeran and his pal Elton John told the media that Elton had criticized Ed's utter lack of fashion sense, and helped hook him up with some decent threads.  Well, Ed's come up with an outfit that Elton can't possibly criticize -- because it's one of his signature looks.

On Instagram, Ed posted a photo of himself dressed like mid-'70s Elton John, complete with huge pink crystal-studded glasses, sequined trousers, a fringed silver leather jacket, sparkly black-and-gold shoes, and a huge feathered collar.

"My brand new single Shivers is out friday," Ed captioned the pic. "I glammed up for the occasion."

In a second photo, Ed is wearing a suit and sitting on a colorful couch, looking utterly dejected. Behind him is a parrot sitting on a branch. The caption on that pic reads, "The moment you realize your last single has been number one for 10 weeks and there’s now a lot of pressure on the next one not to flop."

The photo appears to be a still from the "Shivers" video, as Ed goes on to note, "Shivers out friday, presave it, I rented a parrot for the video, don’t let that be a waste."

"Bad Habits," the first single from Ed's upcoming album, = (Equals), has topped the charts for 10 weeks in his native U.K.
