“It won’t be long”: Lena Meyer-Landrut wants to delete WhatsApp and Instagram from the cell phone
Surprising confession by Lena Meyer-Landrut: The 31-year-old apparently plays with the idea of throwing social media apps off her cell phone. However, there is good news for her Instagram followers.
Her surprising victory at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 made Lena Meyer-Landrut suddenly famous. But the 31-year-old was not a one-hit wonder, but has been successful in the business ever since. To date she has released five albums, all of which have reached number 1 or 2 in Germany, millions of people listen to her music.
Adding to her popularity is her presence on social media. On Instagram, Meyer-Landrut regularly lets her 4.7 million followers take part in her life and provides her with snapshots, videos and short messages. But the Hanover-born artist is considering giving up this channel of all things.
Lena Meyer-Landrut feels overwhelmed
The reason: she feels overwhelmed by WhatsApp, Instagram and Co. “I feel more and more that I can no longer cope with too much information and stimuli,” she told the German Press Agency. She needs longer to recover and a lot more rest than a few years ago. “That can be due to age or to the rapid developments in the world.”
Then she makes an announcement that makes fans sit up and take notice: “I haven’t had the heart to delete WhatsApp and Instagram yet,” she says, “but I don’t think it will be long.” Thousands of WhatsApp messages a day and group chats – that makes them crazy.
But if you fear that you will have to do without news from the life of the pop singer in the future, there is good news for you: If you actually delete the social media from your cell phone, you will probably get a second cell phone that you use professionally . Because one thing is clear: she doesn’t want to do without uploading pictures.
That should also please fans in Japan: the musician has been a TikTok star there for some time. Her three-year-old song “Life was a Beach” is currently encouraging countless users to shoot their own video and upload it to the platform. What shows: Lena and social media – it’s not that easy to separate.
