Selena Gomez Makes Her Instagram Private After Cryptic Post
It was just last week that Selena Gomez accepted Billboard’s Woman of the Year award. However, it now looks like the singer may not be happy with the publication due to something they chose to include in their story about her.
On Tuesday, the “Bad Liar” performer reportedly took to her Instagram stories to share a screenshot of the first paragraph from her Billboard Woman of the Year interview. “There’s a five-foot teddy bear sprawled across the kitchen floor in Selena Gomez’s North Hollywood home,” the piece reads. “‘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.”
According to reports and screenshots, Gomez added her own cryptic-yet-telling caption to the snippet, writing, “Never will I let another human guess my words ever again. Or invite them in my home. That is so hurtful. The most ‘ridiculous’ part of that is no one knowing my heart when I say things.”
Soon after, her account was set to private and the Insta story was deleted. Of course, that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating about what she meant by the post. Many believe that whoever gave Gomez the bear was hurt by the Billboard story, which prompted the “Bad Liar” performer to respond on Instagram.
The person that gifted her that teddy bear is really important to Selena & must have read the interview and got mad at Selena for treating it like something to get rid of. That’s the only explanation.

Other fans have taken the speculation a step further, guessing that the person who gave Gomez the bear was none other than Justin Bieber. (There’s no proof that this is true.)
Whoever is saying abel gave selena the teddy.. Delusional!! She would have taken a scisor and ripped it by now if it was him lmao. Jelena are moving in together and it was probably Justin who gave her the teddy bear 😍♥️

In any case, Gomez’s Instagram account is now set to private. Per the photo-sharing app’s recent data, though, she’s still the most-followed celeb on the platform.
“I think it’s funny because a lot of people know how self-deprecating I am in general,” she said in a KISS Breakfast interview shortly before she changed her privacy settings. “It’s not something I try to keep up. I think it’s amazing to stay connected with my fans and most of the time I probably say too much. But I don’t know. It’s fun, I love being able to connect with people. But whether I’m the number one most followed or the least followed, it’s for me.”

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
