Selena Gomez Opens up About Mental Health and the Pros and Cons of Being a Millennial

The star covers ‘BoF’s “Generation Next” issue.

By //Entertainment

Selena Gomez has been in the spotlight for a long time; She got her showbiz start at just seven years old and has gone on to conquer the entertainment industry as a multi-hyphenate hybrid superstar. But Selena is more than just an actress and musician. Yes, she’s an executive producer on 13 Reasons Why and has collaborated on a collection with Coach but more importantly, she’s an advocate for mental health and uses her status as the most followed person on Instagram to talk about incredibly important current issues, like the DACA program.

As a cover star for the “Generation Next” issue of BoF, alongside Adwoa Aboah, Lily-Rose Depp and Kris Wu, Selena opened up to editor Imran Amed about the struggles of growing up in the public eye, her high level of confidence as a child and the problems people face with separating their lives on a phone from reality. Addressing her own struggles with mental health and both the positive and negative aspects of social media, Selena speaks candidly about dealing with her own achievements and issues as well as those faced by the millennials and Gen-Z as a whole. “I just have to take care of myself. Therapy, faith, hard work, kindness. That’s it,” she says.
