How Is Selena Gomez Involved in 13 Reasons Why?

Here's How Selena Gomez Is Involved in 13 Reasons Why

Though she may not appear on screen, Selena Gomez has been a driving force behind Netflix's adaptation of 13 Reasons Why. The "Back to You" singer is an executive producer on the hit show and has referred to the series as a "passion project" ahead of its premiere in 2017. Last year Dylan Minnette, who stars as Clay Jensen on the show, recalled one of his fondest memories working with Gomez in season one, telling us: "She stayed with us the whole day on set and talked to everyone. She took us out to dinner and saw a movie with us, and we hung out with her. I don't think I can emphasize how generous she is and how genuinely she cares."

Now that season two has finally premiered, we can confirm that Gomez stays behind the camera. "A book is frightening for me because I know the cult following it has," she told The Hollywood Reporter in 2017. "Which is the reason why I didn't want to be in it." In fact, it was her mother who brought the project to her back when it was still going to be adapted into a film. Despite not wanting to star, Gomez was so drawn to the material that she took on the project as an executive producer and helped get it made as a Netflix miniseries.

On top of supporting the cast and crew, Gomez contributed two songs to the soundtrack for the first season: a cover of Yazoo's 1982 track "Only You" and an acoustic version of "Kill Em With Kindness." She also penned a new song for season two's soundtrack, that comes into play during an important moment in the finale.
