Selena Gomez’s new documentary is here, and in it, she opens up about her continuous mental health struggles over the last six years.
Speaking to E! News at the premiere of Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me on Wednesday night, Gomez admitted that while she tried to be as transparent as possible, her trip to Kenya in 2019 nearly didn’t make it into the film.
When asked if there was a part she initially didn’t want to share in her film, Gomez told E! News correspondent Francesca Amiker: “That was probably in Kenya.”
The Only Murders in the Building star explained: “I felt guilty being there sometimes. I hate that. I feel like I went and filmed and experienced, but it’s just so hard because I feel so selfish. Do I feel great? Yes, and do I feel like I left an impact? Yes. But do I feel like I’ve done enough? No.”

“That’s a very big, big, present thing in my life,” she explained, adding that it hasn’t stopped her from looking forward to being a mom.
“However I’m meant to have them, I will.”
Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me is now streaming on AppleTV+.
