Having started his career in Barney and his friends when she was just ten years old and cementing herself as one of her generation’s favorite actresses five years later, when she starred in Wizards of Waverly Place🇧🇷 Selena Gomez is a big name in the pop industry.
What not everyone knew is that behind all of the artist’s great achievements was a human being who had to face struggles that even threatened his life.
These events are recorded in the documentary Selena Gomez: My Mind & Mewhich showed the public how Selena managed to overcome all this problem and stay in the media successfully.
Therefore, many fans were curious to know if the production is available on Netflix, and the answer is no!
Netflix probably doesn’t intend to add this title on its own platform – and maybe can’t even do that – as it was created exclusively for another platform.
Where can you watch Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me?
The documentary is available on Apple TV+ and can be accessed by subscribers to the service.
On Netflix, you can watch other pop star documentaries such as Miss Americana, by Taylor Swift, and light up the skyfrom the k-pop group Blackpink.
Documentary director worried about Selena Gomez’s mental health
Alek Keshishian is the director behind the film of more than 1 hour and a half. He revealed that he had more than 250 hours of footage of the artist’s life and it took him a year to edit all the material and reach a 2h30min cut that he ended up reducing even more to emphasize the mental health problems that Selena faced.
“Sometimes less is more. I knew I could release a two hour and 30 minute cut and please her fans who would never get tired of her. But I wanted us to mean something to people who aren’t fans. I want the most distilled and concentrated version of this story so you spend 93 minutes and I hope you leave feeling different about your own life.”
“In 2016, there’s a scene where she collapses after dress rehearsal, and I was in the dressing room before anyone arrived. I held her hand and talked to her and told her, ‘This is natural. People feel that, and that’s okay.’ It was only after comforting her for a while that I told her we needed to film this, and she said she was fine with that. She had made a promise to me that you had to get something on the level of In Bed with Madonna to dare. At the end of the day, I was more interested in being a decent human to her than getting the movie or my paycheck. That’s what builds trust,” he said.
