Selena Gomez is filtering who gets to see what on her Instagram account, and people have never been more intrigued by her. 

The 25-year-old made her account on the picture sharing website private. Unsurprisingly, it was not without controversy. 

Selena Gomez Keeps It Simple

The star recently appeared on the cover of Billboard (as its Woman of the Year, no less!) and had a fine old chat about her life, Justin Bieber and a whole host of other things. 

Before Selena made her account private, she shared a cryptic snap that made people question the real motives for going quietly into the night. 

Thanks to the power of the internet, a screenshot of the final post is everywhere, so we still get to talk about it. 

Over the screenshot, she wrote, "Never will I let another human guess my words ever again. Or invite them in my home. That is so hurtful."

She continued, "The most ‘ridiculous’ part of that is no one knowing my heart when I say things."

Those certainly seem to be the words of someone who is not in the best of moods, and the excerpt behind Selena’s words seem to tell the story. 

The excerpt of the Billboard article surrounded a big, cuddly bear the songstress keeps in her home. 

"There’s a five-foot teddy bear sprawled across the kitchen floor in Selena Gomez’s North Hollywood home," it begins. 

"’I know, I know,’ says Gomez, rolling her eyes, acknowledging that the stuffed animal doesn’t quite blend with the trio of armchairs nestled in the inviting, marble-accented nook."

"’It was a gift, and at first I thought, This is so ridiculous, I can’t wait until I give it away to another person.’ But Gomez, 25, hasn’t let go of it — yet."

Based on the way Selena has reacted, perhaps she did not realize that everything she said was going to make the cut.

They have to fill their pages somehow. There’s also the possibility that Selena feels her words were taken out of context and manipulated. 

It’s not uncommon for stars to take issue with the way their words are portrayed in the press.

Selena was ecstatic at being part of the magazine just last week, so maybe she never got to read the content before it went to print. 

She shared a picture of the cover and thanked the publication for making her its Woman of the Year just days ago. So, what took her so long to lash out?

Maybe she was too busy snuggling up with Justin Bieber and sending selfies of them kissing to Sofia Richie with the caption, "Yeah, they always return to the best."

We kid, of course, but there’s something sketchy going on with the way the lights went off on Selena’s Instagram account, and there will hopefully be some clarity in due course. 

What do you think about all of this?
