In 2016, Selena was informed that she had Lupus. Since then, she’s struggled with debilitating anxiety as she attempts to figure out “how to breathe her breath.” She has undergone a kidney transplant, a nervous breakdown, despair, and the deepest grief imaginable in the past six years. What the rest of the world sees and cares about is tragic, though.

Selena Gomez’s My Mind & Me is a stunning effort to counter the negative perceptions others have of her. The Selena Gomez film for Apple TV begins as a tour documentary but quickly morphs into an intimate look at current celebrity and mental illness.
It’s a problematic attempt to describe the experiences of a 30-year-old who has been balancing work, school, and romantic relationships since she was seven. First, it’s excellent that complicated medical topics have been broken down into terms that a layperson can understand. For instance, a person without Lupus would have no idea what blood pressure readings would put them at risk for a heart attack.
When it comes to bringing the events described in Gomez’s journal to life, director Alek Keshishian has done an outstanding job. The fact that he has not edited the photos makes them all the more stunning. The videographer keeps trying to get her to repeat herself, but she has none. The entire sequence is played out as it happened; no changes or edits were made. A magician can only appreciate its true beauty.
According to Selena, she was sent on this earth to do good, and she hopes her documentary will be a tremendous resource for people experiencing mental health issues. All her venting about her breakdowns and coping with the craziness has strengthened our faith that things will improve eventually.
The use of simple effects, such as music in the background and clips from her live performances, effectively highlights the subject matter. Even though it deals with the highly charged and upsetting topic of depression, which can trigger many people, how it is handled will astound you and motivate you to “kill them with kindness.” Mandy Teefey and Raquelle Stevens deserve an enormous thank you for illustrating the importance of having loved ones nearby in a time of need.

Rating – Four out of five stars. Selena Gomez’s My Mind & Me is a stunning effort to counter the negative perceptions others have of her.
On November 1, 2022, the documentary was released. In this, Selena Gomez plays the lead role. Alek Keshishian is in charge of direction. Selena Gomez and Alek Keshishian are the producers. It can be viewed on Apple TV.

Selena has moved on from her troubled background and “hopes people might find peace and grace in that too,” as she so eloquently put it. With any luck, things will change, and we’ll see things from her point of view and appreciate her efforts.
