Selena Gomez is set to star in a new documentary that tackles the various struggles she encountered while in the limelight. Apple Original Films has scored the global rights to produce the upcoming documentary "Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me."

Directed and produced by Alek Keshishian – director of the critically acclaimed film "Madonna: Truth or Dare," the upcoming feature explores the tumultuous journey of the former Disney star as a singer, songwriter, actress, producer, entrepreneur and activist.

"After years in the limelight, Selena Gomez achieves unimaginable stardom. But just as she reaches a new peak, an unexpected turn pulls her into darkness. This uniquely raw and intimate documentary spans her six-year journey into a new light," Apple teased the upcoming feature whose release date is yet to be announced.

Gomez began her acting career in "Barney and Friends" between 2002 and 2004. She appeared in "Hannah Montana" in 2007 and in "Wizards of Waverly Place" between 2007 and 2012.

At age 16, she signed with Hollywood Records and later formed the band Selena Gomez & the Scene. They released their first studio album in 2009. She released her first standalone single, "It Ain't Me" in February 2017 and her second one, "Bad Liar" in May. Her third studio album, "Rare" was released in 2019 which she followed up with a collaboration with Blackpink for the hit "Ice Cream" in 2020.

Over the years, she has sold 210 million singles worldwide aside from 45 billion global streams of her music. She received her first Grammy nomination in 2021.

The singer endured a very public breakup with Justin Bieber in 2013 before reuniting briefly in September 2014 and calling it off again the following month. In the same year, Gomez checked herself into The Meadows Recovery Center though not due to substance abuse, her representatives said.

In 2017, she underwent a kidney transplant because of Lupus. Most recently, the actress has been working with Martin Short and Steve Martin for the Hulu series "Only Murders in the Building."

Last year, Gomez spoke about her excitement about doing the Hulu series.

"What I'd say is the level of sophistication of the material is the first reason why I wanted to do this," Gomez told Glamour when asked to compare her experience on Disney Channel with her new project. "But when I was a kid, I didn't know what I was doing. I was just running around on set and now I just feel like a sponge and I soak up all the wisdom that I can," she added.
