Though the singer's dress was flirty and fun, she got serious while discussing her passion project, 13 Reasons Why, during a panel on Wednesday.
"I was there for the last episode. I was a mess just seeing it all come to life, because I've experienced just that for sure," shared Gomez, who executive produced the Netflix series. "It hits a very important part of me."
"I actually was going through a really difficult time when they started production. I went away for 90 days, and I actually met a ton of kids in this place that were talking about issues that these characters are experiencing," she continued of the show, which centers on a teenager who commits suicide, but leaves behind tapes explaining how her classmates played a role in her death.
"It was very confusing for me. I had no idea who I was going to be, what I'm still going to become," she added. "I want to be a part of this, because I think this is what they want, this is what they need."
