Selena Gomez may ‘just disappear’ after new radio show, single and doc ‘My Mind & Me’
Selena Gomez has hit the brakes after her new album ‘Lover,’ which was released this morning, topped the Billboard charts.
She’s now heading down a new low – releasing only one song to the world but leaving behind a documentary about mental health in the process. It’s a move that’s not too surprising coming from the singer who famously spoke out about her struggles with an eating disorder. And although her new doc is just a single song, you can judge for yourself whether or not it’s worth your own ear, eye or soul.
‘Selena Gomez and the Secret Life of Her Mind’ will be available on Apple Music and Google Play.
Here’s the trailer for the documentary…
It shows Gomez going through all the stages of an eating disorder and how the trauma of growing up with both a mom who didn’t do her best job of looking after her and an alcoholic dad who made her feel worthless, not to mention the pressures of the pop star business.
“When I was young my mom was constantly in my face telling me how good I was and how I was supposed to be, and that I should just be happy but that day I was a broken girl,” Gomez said. “I was a broken girl.”
“When I was young my dad was always with us. He wasn’t always around but he was always there. It was always his fault. I felt like he knew what was best, what was happening, what was happening to me was happening.”
Gomez was inspired by her own experience as a kid in talking about the difficult things she had to face and the things that made it worse. “I always wanted people to see me as a powerful person and tell their own stories of what it means to be powerful,” she said. “But when I was little I was a broken girl, and that’s the truth.”
Gomez has been doing some solo work as well. “It’s not quite like my career is supposed to be,” she said. “My career is supposed to end at the top of album charts.”
The new record “started after I broke out of the cycle and I’m very proud of that one because I got my shit together at the lowest point.”
She continued: “
