Selena Gomez To Play The Role Of An Influencer Who Is Addicted To Social Media In Spiral.
Singer cum actress, Selena Gomez has landed a new movie role and will be starring in Spiral where she will play the role of an Influencer who eventually became addicted to Social Media.
Spiral is an upcoming psychological thriller and the former Disney star is going to play some intense role, battling addiction from Social Media. The movie is bound to teach us a lot especially from left hand-side of social media usage that a lot of us don’t consider before yearning to become an influencer.
When is Spiral going to be released? According to Deadline, Gomez’s character’s “addiction to social media is causing her body to literally fall apart.” Surprisingly, the movie will be produced by Drake! Plus, Petra Collins — who previously worked with Gomez on her “Fetish” music video — is set to direct it. Future the Prince (who was also behind Euphoria with Drake), Matthew Budman and Sumaiya Kaveh will also serve as executive producers.
So the actress may be playing someone who is addicted to social media in the movie, but in real life, Gomez isn’t really a fan of it. She actually told Vogue back in March 2021 that her team runs her Instagram and Twitter accounts, and that she hasn’t used the apps in more than three years.
“I woke up one morning and looked at Instagram, like every other person, and I was done,” she explained. “I was tired of reading horrible things. I was tired of seeing other people’s lives. After that decision, it was instant freedom. My life in front of me was my life, and I was present, and I could not have been more happy about it.”
