During a recent interview with ‘Interview Magazine’ by stand-up comedian Amy Schumer, pop superstar Selena Gomez sincerely answered questions about her life and talked about some mental health issues.
Recently, Selena Gomez admitted that it wasn’t easy to figure out how to manage her mental health before, but she is finally in a good place.
Today, while talking about Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, Gomez talked about how important it is to help people, and she said that being abused makes people angry. She also added that said she likes to help people with mental health problems like she had in the past.
Amy Schumer asked:
“I really loved 13 Reasons Why, which you produced. There’s such a parallel there, because, yes, you’re such a famous person—but to the girl who gets lied about and bullied in high school, it feels just as big.”
Selena Gomez answered:
“That’s why it frustrates me. I read on the news that an 11-year-old boy took his life because a girl was messing with him online. I don’t want to live in a world where that’s happening. It doesn’t matter what scale it’s on.”
Schumer also asked:
“You’ve already helped a lot of people, especially younger people, with understanding their own mental health issues. Do you feel like that’s your calling?”
“I don’t know if that was ever meant to be my role, but I love people. I care, a lot. I’ve gone through a lot of medical issues, and I know that I can reach people who are going through similarly scary things—an organ transplant, or being on dialysis, or going away for treatment.
A huge part of why I have a platform is to help people. That’s why I think I’m okay with the magnitude. I mean, I’m not really okay with it—but I’m going to say that I am because it’s worth it. I know that I’m making someone somewhere feel good, or feel understood or heard, and that’s worth it for me.”
