Global star Priyanka Chopra is finally opening up about the scrutiny that followed after she dropped husband Nick Jonas’ last name from her Instagram handle last year. The “Mary Kom” actor described the social media uproar over the change as “a professional hazard” to Vanity Fair for its February cover story, UKTN News reported.
The 39-year-old star recalled “random Monday in November” when she reverted to her first and last name on Instagram, which immediately sparked speculation from fans about an impending split. But as Priyanka tells the fashion magazine, social media is far from a panacea. She added that the experience was a prime example of the microscope celebrities find themselves under in this era.
“It’s a very vulnerable feeling, actually, that if I post a photo, whatever’s behind me in that photo is going to be zoomed in, and people are going to speculate,” the ‘Quantico’ star explained.
“It’s just a professional hazard… Because of the noise of our social media, because of the prevalence it has in our lives, I think it seems a lot more important than it is. I think we give him a lot more credit in real life, and I don’t think that’s necessary,” she added. To put an end to all the rumors about their split in November, Priyanka left a cheeky comment on one of Jonas’ workout videos. heart emoji couple.
