For celebrities, social media is a great place to connect with fans. But let’s face it, social media causes a lot of problems in today’s society.

Demi Lovato recently opened up about how she deals with negativity on social media.

During an episode of Ashley Graham’s podcast “Pretty Big Deal”, the 27-year-old admitted, “social media in itself is a giant trigger.”

Demi, who’s struggled with substance abuse in the past, said she blocks people off social media.

“I love blocking people. I love blocking people I know. I love blocking people I don’t know. It’s just so great!" Lovato said.

While performing at the BRIT Awards, Billie Eilish, 18, said she “felt very hated recently.” This admission came as a shock, after the year she’s had. Billie recently earned five Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, three MTV Music Awards, and one BRIT Award.

But with her newfound success, she’s experienced a lot of negativity. When speaking to “BBC Breakfast” Eilish said she had to stop reading comments fully. “It was ruining my life...The cooler the things you get to do are, the more people hate you. It’s crazy.”

She continued, “The internet is just a bunch of trolls, you know? And the problem is that a lot of it is really funny. I think that’s the issue — that’s why nobody really stops, because it’s funny.”

Emma Stone has starred in some of the most popular movies ever. But even she doesn’t think social media is a positive outlet.

In an interview with Elle, the Golden Globe Award winner said, “I think it wouldn’t be a positive thing for me. If people can handle that sort of output and input in the social media sphere, power to them.”

When asked by Interview Magazine about her social media use, Scarlett Johansson, seemed more than uninterested.

“That, to me, is a very strange phenomenon. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life. I’m always surprised that certain actors have Twitter accounts. I guess they use it in a way that works for them. But I’d rather that people had less access to my personal life. If I could keep it that way, I’d be a happy lady."

At the beginning of the year, she took to social media to discuss the negative impact social media plays in her life.

In an emotional Instagram post, the 23-year-old wrote, “I could sit here all day and say the hate doesn’t bug me, that the words that are said don’t affect me. But NEWS FLASH: it hurts to be torn apart on the internet!!”

And Many More Celebrities
