Selena Gomez Discusses Why She Won’t Rewatch “My Mind & Me” Documentary

Selena Gomez, a multi-talented artist with a diverse career, has recently made headlines with her hit murder mystery series, Only Murders In The Building, which premiered its third season on Hulu. Additionally, she’s been generating buzz with her latest single, “Single Soon.” Earlier this year, Gomez released a thought-provoking documentary on Apple TV+ titled Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me.

In this revealing documentary, Gomez opens up about various aspects of her life, including her mental health, her relationship with fame, and her experience living with lupus. During the Music & Health Conference in Los Angeles, held on September 19, Gomez candidly discussed her documentary. She confessed that she initially had reservations about releasing it due to its raw and unfiltered nature.

Gomez shared, “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.

While Gomez expressed a sense of relief after the documentary’s release, she also acknowledged that she might not revisit it in the near future.

I felt like I got to say things that I’ve been keeping in for years,” Gomez shared. “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.”

Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me provides an intimate look into the artist’s life, touching on personal struggles and triumphs. Though Gomez may choose not to revisit it, the documentary remains a testament to her strength and resilience.
