The singer and star of “The Dead Don’t Die”, which had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this week, spoke about some of the film’s global themes at a press conference on Wednesday morning.

“I think our world is going through a lot,” Gomez said, according to IndieWire. “I would say for my generation, specifically, social media has really been terrible. It does scare me when you see how exposed these young boys and young girls are. They are not aware of the news. I think it’s dangerous for sure. I don’t think people are getting the right information sometimes.”

Gomez continued, explaining her personal approach to the social media platforms on which she has millions of followers.

“I think it’s pretty impossible to make it safe it at this point,” she said. “I’m grateful I have the platform. I don’t do a lot of pointless pictures. For me, I like to be intentional with it. It just scares me. I’ll see these young girls at meet and greets, they are devastated, dealing with bullying and not being able to have their own voice. It can be great in moments. I would be careful and allow yourself some time limits of when you should use it.”
