Selena Gomez revealed she documented her life story so that others would learn the importance of prioritizing mental health in Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me.

The documentary, filmed over the course of six years by director Alek Keshishian, offers an insight into Gomez’s mental health struggles, a lupus-induced kidney transplant, and a bipolar diagnosis.

"I think someone actually asked me if I felt like I did too much. And I'm not going to lie, maybe there were a few moments that were scary to offer up,” the Only Murders in the Building star said.

“But at the same time, if you take anything away from this, I hope people understand my purpose here is supposed to be connection.

"I used myself as a sacrifice in order for people to have the hard conversations. But I'm also going to crawl in a hole now for a few months, so nobody sees me for a while. I did too much,” she added.

Selena Gomez also discussed her relationship and very public breakup with Justin Bieber without acknowledging his name in her film.
