It’s safe to say that there was not a dry eye in the room after Selena Gomez’s new documentary My Mind & Me. So, we’ve compiled all the best fan reactions to her moving film—just to prolong the cryfest.
If you’ve not yet tuned into her candid documentary on Apple TV+ (run, don’t walk because Selena’s giving away two months of free AppleTV+ (opens in new tab)), the film gives a raw, intimate insight into the singer’s life from 2016, during the rise of her career, to now.
It details all of the health conditions she has been battling behind closed doors and her journey with mental illness while being in the spotlight. It powerfully proves the point that we really don’t always know what other people are going through.
The Rare Beauty founder and natural makeup queen really laid everything bare and fans are already calling it the best documentary of the year. So, to drive home the impact Selean’s documentary is having on viewers, let’s take a look at fan reactions—tissues at the ready people!

Another tweeted (opens in new tab): “Selena Gomez’s new documentary is amazing. It’s powerful, empowering, real, and raw. It’s so emotional and powerful, I’m truly speechless.”
“Ok f***, that was a whole experience. a life lesson. the documentary felt like a trip, so many emotions, inspiring words and beautiful and ‘ugly’ moments. but it was just real—authentic. no lies just truth. Selena’s truth. I couldn’t be any more proud of Selena,” tweeted a fourth viewer (opens in new tab).
“This documentary made me look at Selena in a new personal light. The entire world owes Selena Gomez an apology.”

Along with a documentary came a new single from Gomez, titled "My Mind and Me," and her Only Murders In The Building crew had a very relatable reaction. (Charles and Oliver would totally be Selena stans IRL.)

What has Selena said about her new documentary?
Attending the premiere of her new doc on Wednesday, November 2, Gomez shared a few thoughts about the film with Variety (opens in new tab): “Being able to see that version of myself and watching that back broke my heart, to know that I was ever that girl. I just wish I could have hugged that version of myself but I feel like it was important to share it because I did want people to start talking about this.”
She continued: “I think by me being more transparent and honest about what I walked through, there’s nothing that they can say that will honestly affect me. I am who I am and everyone is about to see it.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone (opens in new tab), the star also revealed that she almost didn’t sign off on its release because she was “so nervous.“
Gomez said: “Because I have the platform I have, it’s kind of like I’m sacrificing myself a little bit for a greater purpose. I don’t want that to sound dramatic, but I almost wasn’t going to put this out. God’s honest truth, a few weeks ago, I wasn’t sure I could do it.“ We're so glad you did, Selena!
