Ironically, Selena Gomez – the most popular person on Instagram with 103 million followers – has opened up about how much she hates social media, and how she needed to take a break from it during a rough patch in her life. After announcing that she was taking some time out of the public eye to focus on her personal life in late August, the former Disney Channel star slowly started coming back to her various social media profiles in fall of 2016. Since then, she has also received an executive producer credit on the Netflix original series Thirteen Reasons Why.

Gomez has been tied to this project since 2011, but production on the show only wrapped up recently. For her, this series hit home while she was suffering from depression and anxiety attacks – most likely induced by Lupus – and she said it is as “real as it could possibly get.” Based on the young adult novel by Jay Asher of the same name, the show follows high school student Clay – played by Dylan Minnette – as he deals with the suicide of his classmate Hannah – played by Katherine Langford. Filled with bullying, depression, and emotional abuse, in addition to other timely topics, to Gomez the show represents a necessary reality check for the current teenage population.

She believes she can make a difference with this show, and she said:
“I want them to understand it. I would do anything to be able to have a good influence on this generation but I definitely relate to everything that was going on. I was there for the last episode and I was a mess just seeing it all come to life because I’ve experienced that.”
The show will premiere on Netflix on March 31st.
