Renowned singer and actress Selena Gomez has revealed her hesitancy to watch her 2022 Apple TV+ documentary, “Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me.” She shared her sentiments during the Universal Music Group and Thrive Global’s Music and Health Conference, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
The documentary provides an in-depth look into six years of Selena Gomez’s life, offering insights into her career, mental health, and personal experiences, including her past relationship with Justin Bieber.
“I was very against it. There was a very long period of time where I just didn’t know if it was a good idea. I knew, eventually, one day I wanted to maybe just be an actress for a while, and I didn’t know if it would jeopardize things in my life. I don’t know what I’m doing, letting people into my life. And then the moment it was released… I had no choice at that point. And I was relieved. I felt like a huge weight was lifted,” Selena candidly shared, as per Hollywood Reporter.
She further expressed, “I felt like I got to say things that I’ve been keeping in for years. It’s very hard for me to watch. I will never watch it again, but I’m very proud of it. I couldn’t have been luckier to have the people that worked on it with me.”
In the documentary film, “Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me,” the multi-talented artist opens up about her career, mental health struggles, and the complexities of her life, shedding light on her decision to cancel her 2016 Revival Tour after 55 shows. The documentary offers a deeper understanding of the challenges she faced, which she acknowledges were even more intricate than what she initially disclosed to her fans.
Selena Gomez’s journey as depicted in the documentary reflects the transformation of a child star into a resilient celebrity who has navigated numerous trials and tribulations in her life.
