“Just be who you are, Selena,” the superstar narrates over a montage of clips of herself in the visual. “No one cares what you’re doing. It’s about who I am. Being OK with where I am. I am grateful to be alive.”
The trailer runs through the pop star’s multiple diagnoses of lupus, depression and anxiety and a sensationalized headline that she suffered a “mental breakdown” before she continues, “Let me make a promise: I am going to stop living like this. How do I learn how to breathe my own breath again?”
Later, Gomez tearfully laments that she doesn’t want to be “super famous” and shares a deep-seated fear that she’s “not good enough.” However, a humanitarian trip to Africa and a visit to an old school friend help her recognize, “What makes me happy is connection, and it helps me get out of my head. … Clearly I’m still here to use whatever I have to help someone else.”
The trailer also gives Selenators a sneak peek at yet-untitled new song by the “Boyfriend” singer, on which she intones, “My mind and me/ We don’t get along sometimes/ Gets hard to breathe/ But I wouldn’t change my life/ If somebody sees me like this/ Then they won’t feel alone now/ My mind and me.”
The documentary will premiere in full on Apple TV+ on Nov. 4.
