Selena Gomez criticizes Disney in an emotional documentary
Disney has come under fire from Selena Gomez for treating her like a “product.”
The 30-year-old singer and actress, who appeared in several Disney movies and the television series Wizards of Waverly Place, has now released a new, frank documentary in which she discusses her experience working for the business.
The Daily Mail claims that during one portion of the My Mind & Me documentary on Apple TV+, the star can be seen sobbing when a French journalist interviews the hitmaker about a number of topics.
After the interview, Gomez rushed backstage and informed her crew, “I’m done, I can’t do it anymore. I feel like the journalist wasn’t really listening to my replies, which I find very distressing. She asked, “Do you realize how cheap that makes me feel.
She is asking me thoughtful questions, but she doesn’t really seem to be listening to what I am saying. I never want to do that again because it makes me feel like a product.
The actress continued, “It was making me angry. The interview brought back memories from earlier in my career. You see, it gave me a Disney-like feeling.
This comes after the multi-talented star claimed in a 2021 interview that she felt that she “gave her life away to Disney at a very young age so I didn’t realize precisely what I was doing.”
Gomez rose to prominence at the young age of 10 after appearing in the hit kids’ program Barney. By the age of 15, she had secured the starring part of Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place, and she went on to star in other Disney franchise movies after that.
Since then, the celebrity has moved on to Only Murders in the Building, in which she co-stars with Steve Martin and Martin Short.
Her recently released documentary, meanwhile, sheds light on the singer’s recent health struggles with the autoimmune condition lupus as well as well her bipolar disorder diagnosis following a psychiatric breakdown in 2019.
