Selena Gomez, a globally recognized singer, philanthropist, and actress, has also been a vocal advocate for mental and emotional health. Her documentary “My Mind And Me,” which premiered on November 2, 2022, at AFI Fest, offers an intimate and vulnerable look into her life over a span of six years, starting from 2015.

The documentary provides an unfiltered perspective on Gomez’s life, including her reflections on her ex-partner, pop star Justin Bieber. Following the end of their on-off romance, Bieber announced his engagement to Hailey Baldwin in 2018, just months after their breakup. This period of Gomez’s life has been the subject of much speculation, particularly concerning her relationship with Bieber.

Selena Gomez has been open about her struggles with mental health and its impact on her life. The documentary captures many vulnerable moments from her personal and professional journey, where she reflects on her career, relationships, and self-discovery.

Behind the fame and spotlight lies the immense pressure to maintain perfection as a performing artist. The documentary begins with Gomez expressing her feelings of inadequacy and her fear of disappointing John Janick, the head of her record label. She also touches upon a potential collaboration with Justin Bieber, stating:

“He (John) called me this morning about the song with Justin, like, when am I just going to be good enough by myself?”

She continues:

“When am I just gonna be good enough by myself, not needing anybody to be associated with?”

Although Gomez doesn’t mention Bieber’s name again in the film, director Alek Keshishian highlights the relentless media and public focus on her relationship with him. Over the years, Gomez has faced numerous personal and intrusive questions about Bieber’s romantic life, her mental health struggles, and her 2014 rehab admission.

Selena Gomez addressed rumors and speculation through her song “Lose You To Love Me,” which was reportedly written after her breakup with Bieber. In the documentary, she speaks about the song and her journey towards self-healing, saying:

“It’s me learning to choose myself, to choose life, but also hoping that people can find grace and peace in that too. The song is about knowing that you completely lost every part of who you are just to rediscover yourself again.”

While her relationship with Bieber is a significant aspect of the documentary, it delves much deeper into her journey of self-discovery. Gomez also discusses her mental health and the impact of her lupus diagnosis. At one point, she reveals her reluctance to go to the hospital, stating:

“I didn’t want to be trapped in myself, in my mind anymore. I thought my life was over. I thought this is how I’m going to be forever.”

“My Mind And Me” offers a raw and honest portrayal of Selena Gomez’s life, emphasizing her resilience and commitment to mental health awareness. Through this documentary, Gomez provides a powerful message of hope and self-acceptance to her fans and viewers.
