SAY WHAT?! Yep, pop star Selena Gomez has revealed that she recently spent three months without her mobile phone (and she’s STILL the queen of Instagram!)

Sel – who admitted herself to rehab earlier this year to treat her anxiety and depression brought on by her battle with lupus – admits it was “refreshing and rejuvenating” not having to worry about her phone, and even now she’s still restricting its use.

“I recently took 90 days off. During that time I did not have my cellphone. It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling. Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me,” she said.

While many might just think of emailing her instead, that may not work either, because she admits she doesn’t even use email!

She told Thrive Global: “I don’t [deal with email]. I do better over the phone!” Um, we’re confused…

After taking time out of the spotlight, Selena returned to the public eye at the American Music Awards last week. As she accepted the award for favourite pop/rock female artist, she spoke about her struggles, and how “broken” she felt.

“I think it’s safe to say most of you know my life whether I liked it or not. And I had to stop, because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside, and I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down,” she confessed.

Maybe we should take a leaf out of Sel’s book and try and go without our phones for three months! Not sure how long we’d last though…
