Selena Gomez Makes Instagram Account Private After Slamming Recent Magazine Interview

On Wednesday, the singer made her Instagram handle public again.

Selena Gomez appears to be having some regrets about her candid interview with Billboard magazine.

On Monday night, the "Wolves" singer went on her Instagram story to slam the publication and interviewer less than a week after the article's release. 

Gomez seemed to take issue with a quote she made about a giant teddy bear in her her home, where she says, "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.'"

The interviewer goes on to note that Gomez "hasn't let go of [the teddy bear] -- yet."

Calling out this portion of the Billboard piece in her Instagram story, the 25-year-old entertainer wrote: "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."

Gomez later deleted the message, and switched her Instagram account to private. On Wednesday, she made her handle public again. Currently, Gomez still holds the top spot for having the most followers on the photo sharing app.

The former Disney star didn't appear to take issue with the interview last week when, just after the release of the piece, she went to the Billboard Women In Music 2017 event to accept the Woman of the Year award.

"I'm very honored. I really am. I think right now, especially with everything going on in my industry, it's empowering to see the voice women have right now," she told ET of the honor while at the event. "It's crucial and it's important. Sometimes I feel like a lot of that attention should go to more of that."

Meanwhile on Twitter, she also kept her tweet from Dec. 1, in which she wrote: "Thank you @billboard."
