In her new horror-comedy, directed by Jim Jarmusch and co-starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver and Tilda Swinton, Gomez plays a "wifi-obsessed hipster" in the midst of a climate change-induced zombie apocalypse. While speaking on a panel, she delved into her personal thoughts and opinions about social media. Last night, the way she carried herself with panache has got everyone raving about her. It seems that now she wants to use that power and influence to give young girls pause when they use social media.

US pop singer and actress Selena Gomez has taken aim at social media platforms and their detrimental effect on young people, saying they could be risky and contribute to a world of disinformation and bullying.
