Selena Gomez Addresses Mental Health Issues In Documentary Teaser: Look + Listen

Concurrent with World Mental Health Day, Selena Gomez shared the official trailer for her forthcoming Apple TVdocumentary, My Mind & Me.

Chronicling the past six years of her life. the documentary’s been reviewed as a “uniquely raw and intimate” look into the superstar singer/actresses life that cameras rarely capture, including her behind-the-scenes battle with anxiety, and her lupus diagnosis.

Narrating the trailer, Gomez says “Just be who you are, Selena. No one cares about what you’re doing.” “It’s about who I am, being okay with where I am. I am grateful to be alive.” Looking inward, Selena reflects on her decades-long career from her early childhood, expressing that while her goal was never to be “super famous,” she now bears a responsibility to her audience. “I do know that if I’m here, I have to use that for good.” “Clearly, I’m still here to use whatever I have to help someone else.”

Scheduled for an 11.04 release, the Alek Keshishian-directed, My Mind & Me captures the entertainer’s search for an internal and external connection through self-reflection and close bonds. In his own words, Keshishian stated “I had no interest in making a traditional pop doc.” “I wanted to show something more authentic and Selena did, too. She has a raw vulnerability that captured me… I had no idea then that it would become a six-year labor of love.”

Coming to terms with her past, Gomez attempts to make peace with her traumas rather than ignore them. And the trailer previews a new song from the singer that addresses this need as she sings: “My mind and me/We don’t get along sometimes/It gets hard to breathe/But, I wouldn’t change my life/If somebody sees me like this/Then they won’t feel alone.”
