There is no denying that social media has become absolutely huge over the past few years and pretty much everyone has some form of social media account these days, especially when it comes to the biggest stars in the entertainment industry. Social media is a great way for a top star to help promote a new project they are working on, as well as giving their fans and followers a little insight into their personal life.
Music superstar Katy Perry has a number of different social media accounts but she has admitted that social media has been talking over her life way too much, insisting that she is trying to spend less time on her different social media pages. Katy has urged us all to try to use social media less than we do now, as it will be better for society in the long run.
Perry was chatting to the guys over at Refinery29, when she said to them, "A lot of us are living for that picture, and then the currency is the like. It's hard because I'd rather not care about that and just live my life. We buy clothing and products or pose a certain way or go to an event to get a picture - it's not good for us as a society."
She then went on to add, "I think it's actually the decline of civilisation if we're going extreme about it. We have to find a balance, and I'm trying to find my own personal balance with it because I'm just as much a victim as everybody else."
We understand what you are trying to say, Katy but we have to admit that we cannot see it happening and, if anything, people will continue to use more social media.
