The Trailer For Selena’s New Doc Teases A New Emotional Song
The film comes out next month.
Get ready to see a new side of Selena Gomez because a documentary about the singer is officially coming to Apple TV+. The film, titled My Mind & Me, will offer an intimate look at Gomez’s life as she experiences the ups and downs of living in the spotlight, particularly as a former child star.
My Mind & Me will premiere at the AFI Fest in Los Angeles on Nov. 2 before it’s available to stream on Apple TV+ a few days later. Alek Keshishian, who is known for the iconic 1991 documentary, Madonna: Truth or Dare, was tapped to direct My Mind & Me. According to Deadline, he described Selena’s film as unlike traditional pop star documentaries.
“I wanted to show something more authentic and Selena did, too,” Keshishian said. “She has a raw vulnerability that captured me...I had no idea then that it would become a six-year labor of love.”
Here’s everything you need to know about Gomez’s new documentary before it arrives.
When will My Mind & Me premiere?
Gomez’s documentary will premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, Nov. 4.
What is My Mind & Me about?
On their website, Apple TV+’s logline for the film is: “After years in the limelight, Selena Gomez achieves unimaginable stardom. But just as she reaches a new peak, an unexpected turn pulls her into darkness. This uniquely raw and intimate documentary spans her six-year journey into a new light.”
My Mind & Me will chronicle Selena’s mental health journey. She frequently speaks candidly about seeking treatment to help her manage her anxiety and depression, as well as her bipolar disorder. Last year, she also launched a website, Wondermind, which includes a newsletter and tools to manage mental health.
Is there a trailer for My Mind & Me?
Gomez unveiled the teaser trailer for her documentary on Sept. 20. The 30-second clip featured intimate moments of her crying in bed, working on music, and spending time with her friends and family.
On Oct. 10, which was World Mental Health Day, the official trailer for My Mind & Me dropped. The clip teased that Selena would discuss her experiences with depression and anxiety, as well as her lupus condition, throughout the film.
“I am grateful to be alive,” she says in the trailer.
It seems Gomez will also open up about her life as a child star. “My whole life since I was a kid I’ve been working,” Gomez says tearfully while clips of her performing as a kid play. “I don't want to be, like, super famous, but I do know that if I’m here, I have to use that for good.”
The trailer also featured a sneak peek of a new song by Gomez in which she sings, “My mind and me, we don’t get along sometimes and it gets hard to breathe, but I wouldn’t change my life.”
Grab your tissues because this documentary looks like it’ll be an emotional watch.
