Before Selena Gomez My mind and me documentary release tomorrow, the singer celebrated the project at its Hollywood premiere last night, dressed as the woman of the hour she was. Gomez stepped out in a one-shoulder silk magenta Rodarte gown. She wore her hair up and accessorized with dangling earrings. Gomez’s longtime stylist Kate Young put the look together.
Gomez revealed that Rolling stones in a new interview released today that she almost didn’t allow the project to come out. “I’m just so nervous,” she said of her release. “Because I have the platform that I have, it’s kind of like I’m sacrificing myself a little bit for a greater cause. I don’t want to sound dramatic, but I almost didn’t mean to put this off. God’s honest truth, a few weeks ago I wasn’t sure I could do it.”
She also talked about the song she recorded for the film, “My Mind and Me,” out today, and how it differs from the rest of the music she’s coming out with.
“‘My Mind and Me’ is kind of sad,” she said, “but it’s also a really nice way to put a button on the documentary part of life and then it just becomes fun stories about me living my life and going on dates and having conversations with myself. I feel like it’s going to be an album that’s like, ‘Oh, she’s not in that place anymore; she’s actually just living life.'”
