Selena Gomez holds back tears on GMA & admits she has 'days she doesn't want to get out of bed' in mental heath battle
SELENA Gomez fought back tears as she opened up about her mental health battle on Good Morning America on Monday.
The 29-year-old appeared on the morning show with her mom Mandy Teefey and Newsette founder Daniella Pierson to discuss their new mental fitness company, Wondermind.
Selena, her mom, and Daniella announced the launch of their venture late last year, with the big reveal as part of a cover story for Entrepreneur magazine in November.
To celebrate the release of Wondermind’s first newsletter, the trio appeared on GMA to share more about their journey creating the company and why it’s all so important to them.
For the Disney Channel alum, she shared that she’s often had really bad days where this type of resource would’ve been very helpful to her.
Now, she hopes Wondermind will not only be able to help her on her mental health journey but all others who need a resource like this, as well.

Holding back tears, she explained to ABC News' Juju Chang: "If I'm known for anything, I hope it's simply just for the way I care about people.
“Those days where I don't wanna get out of bed, if I had something like Wondermind, even if it — it took me a minute to get into it, it's just there.
“And there's something that's really comforting about that.”
Later in the interview, Selena’s mom was asked to give advice to other parents “watching [their] daughter struggle.”

She got emotional as she opened up about her changing relationship with Selena and the hardships they’ve gone through together.
“To listen. To do the work alongside the child,” Mandy said. “Like, that’s going to make me cry. But, like, you have to do the work with them.”
Selena comforted her mom and gently rested a hand on her shoulder as she saw her getting choked up.
Mandy fought through the tears she was holding back to continue: “You have to learn how to speak to them the way that they’re needing to be spoken to.
“Love them the way they’re needing to be loved.
“I was parenting her the way that I needed to be parented when I was younger. That wasn’t working for our relationship.
“So, we had to learn how to recommunicate with each other.”
She added that “it’s been amazing ever since we took the time” to learn what was right for them and their specific relationship.
When announcing the company last year, Selena shared on Instagram: “Mental health is something that is very close to my heart.
“It is so important to have places where people can come together and understand that they’re not alone in their mental fitness journey.”
Meanwhile, her mom shared: “I’ve battled mental health since I was child and took me decades to realize with the right support and tools I can live with my ADHD and work through my trauma.
“So, we wanted to create an ecosystem for anybody and everybody to have access to these tools and celebrate their individuality!! Let’s wondermind!!”
Aside from the new company, Selena is also focused on her hit Hulu series, Only Murders in the Building.
The very first episode dropped back in August, and the show's second season will premiere in the summer of 2022.
