Hailey Bieber opened up about her decision to deactivate Twitter account last summer. She is just another celebrity whose explanation is simple.
The model recently turned a YouTuber and shared that she cannot so much negativity. On her latest video, she revealed to psychologist Jessica Clemons that when there is a situation where you just have a lot of people talking about the same thing over and over again, it starts to mess up your head.
She explained, “I think when you’re going through a situation where you just have so many people hounding you with the same thing over and over and over again, it starts to mess with your mind and then you start to question everything and you’re like, ‘Is there something that I’m not seeing that they see… Maybe they’re right?'”
Hailey further added that all the criticism reached its peak after she married Justin Bieber back in 2018. She shared that their union actually opened her to a new kind of level of attention. The model explained one of the biggest things she struggled with was the comparison aspect.
She said, “I think one of the biggest things I struggled with for sure was the comparison aspect of body comparison and looks comparison and behavior comparison.” Hailey is seemingly referring to the way fans compare her with Justin’s ex Selena Gomez and how they both are pitted against each other.
Hailey further explained that at the end she realized the best thing for her mental health will be to limit her time on social media. She shared that she only goes on Instagram during the weekends and that she has changed her settings so only people she follows can comment on her posts.
“People can say whatever they want on the internet..”
The model further shared, “When I look at my comments now, when I put up a photo or a video or anything, I know it’s only going to be people that I know are only going to be positive and only going to be encouraging and uplifting.”
She also discussed about another social media app, Twitter which is an entirely different conversation. Hailey shared that she decided to deactivate her account entirely because there was never a time when she went there and didn’t feel it is a toxic environment. She shared how that thought of opening the app also gives her bad anxiety.
Hailey said, “There was never really a time I would go on there that it didn’t feel like it was a very toxic environment. The thought of even opening the app gives me such bad anxiety that I feel like I’m going to throw up.” The model explained that people can say whatever they want on the internet. She added that stuff goes viral because people believe anything that they see on social media.
The model turned YouTuber shared, “People can say whatever they want on the internet, you know, and then this stuff goes viral because people believe anything that they see on social media.” She has also opened up about where she has found comfort and healing in her therapist who reminds her that the criticism exists only on her screen.
Justin has also talked about the harsh treatment he has received in his initial time in the industry. Hailey acknowledged this as she shared that her husband has helped her with it. She said, “My husband has helped me so much with it like, I really have to give him credit because he’s been doing this so much longer at this really massive level.”
Hailey talked about the loss of privacy she experienced after tying the knot with Justin. Back in April for the issue of Elle, she revealed that she wanted to hide during the first few months of their marriage. The model said, “I was like, ‘I don’t want people so in my business. I feel like everybody’s up my ass.’ I was like, ‘Can there be no anonymity? Can I have any of it back?'”
