Selena Gomez Hopes Her New Netflix Show Will Help Vulnerable People Speak Up
Selena Gomez hopes new Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why, will help young people speak out
Selena Gomez is hoping to do more than just entertain people with her new Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why, she want to help and inspire, too.
The actress/singer executive produces the new series about a group of teens who face various struggles in the aftermath of a friend’s death.
Selena has told Entertainment Tonight that she wants the show to actually help young people to speak out and seek help if they need it.
“I'm really big on vulnerability. I think people are really scared to be honest with themselves and strength is looked upon as, ‘Oh I'm strong, I don't need anything, I can handle everything,’ and that's just not the truth,” she said.
"I think kids especially, with social media sometimes, they just feel a little claustrophobic, and I don't think their voice is actually being heard,” the 24 year old added.
“I want people to know that every single life is valuable, that their voice can be heard, and that there are people who are willing to be there for them,” she finished.
Having struggled with her own anxiety and depression issues after being diagnosed with Lupus - and seeking treatment in rehab - we can’t think of a better person to help other people.
