Spending Time With Writer/Director Alek Keshishian As We Examine ‘Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me’

The rock doc has historically been pretty formulaic but when it pushes against convention; that’s when we get something special.

On this episode we get into the thick of the mental health toll that stardom can have on an individual and how taking a step back is almost always the right play for the long term.  It’s time for Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me.

After years in the limelight, Selena Gomez achieves unimaginable stardom. But just as she reaches a new peak, an unexpected turn pulls her into darkness. This uniquely raw and intimate documentary spans her six-year journey into a new light.

We had the pleasure of sitting down with writer/director Alek Keshishian to talk about how he got the job, how his career has been paralleled by two iconic pop stars, the importance of making something that really showed the human side of the pop star life when it gets derailed by health issues and life in general.

Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me is available now on Apple TV+
