Selena Gomez’s hit Netflix series has been one of the most buzzed about shows this season. However, the show is gaining a bad reputation as Australian mental health organizations began issuing warnings about the show. The warnings came after suicide prevention hotlines began receiving “steadily increasing stream of calls and emails” from people asking about the series in the two weeks it premiered. There has been both praise and heavy criticism for Selena’s show and Kristen Douglas, a manager at Headspace, says allowing teens to watch the series imposes a serious risk.

Selena Gomez has dropped the lyric video for her song “Only You” off of the “13 Reasons Why” soundtrack. The video lays out the track’s message of finding the one person that can save the singer.
But the visuals in the vid look familiar. The visual opens with some stylized animations that might remind some of Niall Horan’s “This Town” lyric video. That song suffered from a lack of excitement, so Selena didn’t go all the way with the hand-drawn look.
The video also used scenes from “13 Reasons Why,” the Netflix series she helped put together.

Selena Gomez’s role in “13 Reasons Why” kept her behind the camera rather than on the actual series, but that doesn’t mean the singer’s music wasn’t on the cast’s mind. The Associated Press spoke to a few of the cast members about their favorite Selena songs at the red carpet premiere and their answers range from both old and new hits.
“I’m kind of in love with ‘Perfect,'” said Devin Druid who plays Tyler in the Netflix series. Dylan Minnette, however, revealed that he prefers a song from Selena’s “Revival” era. “‘Me & The Rhthym’ is hands down the best Selena song. So good,” Dylan said.

Selena Gomez has been a priceless asset during the promotion of “13 Reasons Why.” Serving as an executive producer, Selena has been the new series’ face as it introduces several unknown young actors on the Netflix original. Two of those new faces just entered the Selenator hall of fame, though, as they got matching tattoos with the popstar this weekend.
Tommy Dorfman and Alisha Boe were on a tour of “13 Reasons Why” billboards with Selena when the trio decided to get some ink. All three of them got semicolon tattoos on their wrists. The semicolon has a deep meaning related to the 13-episode TV show’s story about a teenager’s suicide.
Started in 2013, Project Semicolon is a movement designed to give people struggling mental health a chance to be visible. Whether someone wears it to mark their own struggle or to support someone else through theirs, the symbol is meant to be a rejection of suicide. It’s intended to be a message about continuing life’s sentence instead of ending it.
Selena has discussed her own struggles a lot while promoting the series. After canceling the end of her “Revival Tour” in order to re-enter rehab, the show has been her first major public project. It’s been keeping her busy when she’s not hanging with The Weeknd.

Perrie Edwards found a little free time in her busy schedule. While Little Mix has a couple of weeks left on the U.S. leg of Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman Tour,” Perrie gave a shoutout to another American pop star.
Perrie apparently had a chance to catch “13 Reasons Why,” the new Netflix series executive produced by Selena Gomez. The Little Mix singer had some very kind words for Selena’s show. In a screenshot of an iPhone note she posted to Twitter, Perrie wrote, “it was one of the hardest things to watch. The way they got the message across was amazing, and, although I found it upsetting and massively disturbing, I feel like every person going to school/high school should watch it.”

If you let Selena Gomez tell it, then she would say that there wasn’t much that she did when it came to the production of “13 Reasons Why.” As a co-producer of the Netflix series, Selena’s role was to be the big name to help sell the project, but the series’ star Katherine Langford says her role was much bigger.
In an interview with MTV UK, the Australia-born actress revealed that Selena was very supportive throughout the process of being cast and while filming the series. “There were no bad feelings or weird feelings, she just let me do it,” Katherine said about Selena’s supportive approach. The producer was in rehab for much of the filming for “13 Reasons Why,” but was able to visit the set on the last day of filming and spend time with the cast.
“We had like dinner and we watched ‘Moonlight’ and just hung out,” Katherine said about their first time interacting with one another.
