Selena Gomez Isn't Trying to 'Glorify Anything' With '13 Reasons Why'

13 Reasons Why will be back in just a week on Netflix, and executive producer Selena Gomez is opening up about the show’s legacy.

In her interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, the 25-year-old entertainer dished about her new song that’s included on the soundtrack and all about season two.

“I just think that what I learned more than anything is just how making an impact can look differently,” Selena shared about the show going forward. “I think what we’re doing and what we’ve always wanted to talk about was genuinely just to care about people and to get it out in that certain way.”

She adds, “…nobody is trying to desensitize it. I think I just learned to be bold, to stand by what you believe in.”

Selena also opened up about some of the criticism of the show: “I’ve always viewed things as comfort is the enemy of progress. So I think when something makes that sort of noise, it’s either two reasons. It’s either so foul or it’s amazing. And I think that’s when you get people to wake up. I don’t do it to glorify anything.”

“This is what happens and I’m sorry if you can’t — this is real life and I’ve had numerous parents and kids come up to me. How it’s just opened the door for healthy communication and that’s all you want. You know, we’re not going to end these certain things or try to break through it unless we take those risks.”
