Selena Gomez has an interesting view on social media…..
CANNES, France (AP) – Selena Gomez believes social media is an awful thing.   This, from the person who was, until this past October, the most-followed person on Instagram.   Gomez said at a press conference at the Cannes (CAN) Film Festival
in France that for her generation specifically, “social media has been really terrible.”   She says it leaves young people exposed and unaware of the news.   Gomez appears in the upcoming movie “The Dead Don’t Die,” which is about zombies affected by environmental problems, but social media is a lesser theme in the film.   Bill Murray stars, and the cast includes Tom Waits, RZA (RIH’-zah),
Sturgill Simpson and Iggy Pop.
