Selena Gomez plans to "give up" social media.

The Good For You hitmaker is incredibly active on Twitter but insists she only uses it so she can have her own say on comments made about her on the site.

She told W magazine: "I'm utilising social media right now because of my age and because, to be honest, everybody else in the world was talking about me, so I wanted a f***ing say.

"I honestly had to, because I didn't really expect my life to be as public as it was. Is this going to destroy me or make me? I still have to make that choice on a daily basis. In a few years. I'll give all of it up."

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old singer previously revealed she finds social media a bit bizarre because she thinks of things "very realistically" and doesn't understand how some of her 38 million followers don't actually exist in real life.

She shared: "I don't understand all of that sometimes. I think about things very realistically, because I feel like some of those accounts probably don't even actually exist. I also get very weird about that stuff. I'm like, 'Well, why isn't like everybody selling 40 million albums?'"
