Listen to Selena Gomez's Heartbreaking New Song for "13 Reasons Why"

At the premiere of the Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" in Los Angeles on Thursday, Gomez paired her orange Oscar de la Renta minidress with a pair of blush pink velvet Giuseppe Zanotti mules. When the show begins, Clay Jensen has just received the tapes, and we gradually listen to them with him. "And if you're listening to this tape, you're one of the reasons why". For the upcoming Netflix limited series, Gomez ceded leading lady status to newcomer Katherine Langford; instead of taking the starring role, Gomez opted for a behind-the-scenes part as executive producer, pulling the strings and making it all happen. Each episode of the series will tell the story of a character who has contributed to Hannah's suicide. In Hannah's browser history, they find sites such as a Facebook help page that explains how to block someone on the network.

The tapes provide proof that Hannah witnessed her classmates commit multiple crimes, that at least one of her classmates (Zach) knew Hannah was struggling, and most importantly that Mr. "I want people to know that every single life is valuable, that their voice can be heard, and that there are people who are willing to be there for them".

The interesting drama is produced by a team of producers, which include Selena Gomez. Think of it as a little snack to hold you over until #SG3 arrives. The actress' performance is full of dynamic range, setting it against Minnette's often more complicated task in differentiating between moods that mostly go from uncomfortable to gloomy to red-eyed, hygiene-starved despair. Although plenty of scenes were painful to watch, I commend the showrunners for not shying away from the ugly realities of the issues addressed in the show.

On one hand, the depiction of Hannah's suicide was consistent with the series' unflinching depiction of other traumas, but it was also an active choice from the show's writers.

Reviewers are already suggesting the series is a binge-worthy addition to Netflix's growing library of content geared toward younger audiences.
