Selena Gomez previews her 'Only You' cover from 13 Reasons Why

Actress  singer Selena Gomez arrives at the 2016 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater

"Then when you go home, or [when I] go to my husband's home in the Midwest, you're like, 'This isn't really real.' That 'all of this about me" and, you know, this lifestyle isn't real". Shortly after she meets Clay for the first time, Hannah resignedly sighs, "I keep thinking you're some different type of male".

In case you didn't already assume this, the 13 tapes Hannah recorded coincide with each of the season's 13 episodes - and boy is Tape No. 1 a freakin' doozy. The late Hannah Baker uses the adjective as she wistfully recalls their interactions on the audio tapes detailing her reasons for suicide.

It was that aspect of the story that sealed the deal for the Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy alum.

"I went away for a while, and I turned my phone off", explained Gomez, who has a staggering 115 million Instagram followers-by far the leader on the social-media platform.

Cast of the series include: Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Brandon Flynn, Kate Walsh, Brian D'Arcy James, Christian Navarro. "There's courage in being a nerd", she tells shy Clay on their first meeting.

What do we need to know about her character Hannah Baker? "It's not like they fought viciously or had some tempestuous relationship".

Gomez completed a 90-day stint in rehab last fall to help her cope with anxiety and depression. "It's more about what's happening on the inside", she said. Oh, how we just love seeing Kerris supporting her guy in his next endeavor.


Perhaps you've heard: High school is a treacherous place. Is that 'bullying, ' if you don't win? In doing this project, part of my education was like, oh my gosh. "And, if you are listening to these tapes, you're one of the reasons why". It's one of many moments that deftly captures the encroaching and unfair realities of adult life.

The "I Ain't Me" singer told fans that her song choice was inspired by the Hannah and Clay's relationship in the show. There's no instruction manual.

"Our show @13reasonswhy came out tonight and I couldn't be more overwhelmed with pride and joy", Gomez wrote. In a second, their lives can be ruined, or feel like they're ruined, with a text or a tweet or a picture shared, instantly.

Her mild-mannered friend and admirer Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) is stunned to discover himself among the 13. That's one of the mysteries on the show: When will we find out what Clay did or didn't do?

And the melodrama of high school life can feel tedious at points, which is something you might not want to experience again, depending on where you stood (or stand) in your high school pecking order.

All 13 episodes of 13 Reasons Why will be available on Netflix Friday.
