Selena Gomez is not here for that same old feud narrative.
Which is why she's not adding fuel to the social media buzz over her recent photo with Hailey Bieber. In fact, when asked about the viral snap—taken at the 2022 Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles on Oct. 15—Selena simply told Vulture, "It's not a big deal. It's not even a thing."
By posing for the photo together, Selena and Hailey "wanted to show that there's really no hate between them and that they are both in a good place," a source previously told E! News. "It was a moment and an opportunity to put all of the noise behind them and they took it."
For Selena, her focus is on her upcoming documentary, My Mind & Me, a deeply personal look inside her mental health journey.
As she explained, Selena teamed up with director Alek Keshishian after seeing his film on Madonna, Truth or Dare. "I've watched it seven times," the Disney alum told Vulture. "I think it's wonderful to see someone in that light—whether she liked it or not, I think she was so available to people. I think sometimes in my position, you can be unattainable. But she was so relatable that your heart was with her."
"I think I wanted to make something that was a little surface-y at first," she admitted. "I was like, 'Oh, it'd be nice to do a documentary on my tour.' But Alek, you can speak to this—he doesn't just do random things. He's very much a part of the story and what it becomes."
Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me premieres on AppleTV+ Nov. 4.
