Selena Gomez is giving audiences a piece of her mind. On Oct. 11, the star and entrepreneur shared the first full-length trailer for her Apple TV+ documentary, “Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me,” followed by a sneak-peek clip of her visiting a childhood friend on Oct. 26. The feature-length film will detail Gomez’s ever-expanding career and personal mental health journey. Intimate footage spanning her lifetime can be seen in the trailer, which additionally gives a preview of Gomez’s stirring new song for the project, also titled “My Mind and Me.”

In the trailer, Gomez expresses her conflicting feelings about fame and her desire to do something good with it. “My whole life since I was a kid, I’ve been working. I don’t want to be, like, super famous, but I do know that if I’m here, I have to use that for good,” she says tearfully before acknowledging that the fear she’s not good enough holds her back. “That’s something I felt a lot while growing up.”

During a Nov. 2 appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Gomez opened up about why she chose to disclose some of her most personal matters in the documentary, including her bipolar disorder and battling lupus. “I was able to say my diagnosis out loud for the first time, and it gave me such strength,” Gomez told the daytime talk-show host. “It wasn’t easy, and I think that’s why I wanted the documentary to feel really personal.”

Gomez also shared that she’s “kind of scared” to unveil the movie. “A lot of people are going to see this whole other side of me, and I’m like, I hope they like it . . . I’m really nervous,” she added.
