Selena Gomez on '13 Reasons Why' debut: I'm "overwhelmed" with pride

Dylan Minnette

After all, there's no way to bring Hannah back to life, and her death, though tragic, isn't a whodunnit, which makes 13 Reasons Why less of a mystery and more of a rumination on adolescent angst. As Clay keeps listening, things get worse, including two instances of rape that have the popular crowd anxious that Clay might take the tapes to school authorities or to Hannah's grieving parents (Kate Walsh and Brian d'Arcy James), which could get everyone into serious trouble. And while 13 Reasons Why certainly doesn't go out of its way to villainize half of its cast, it's a strangely revolutionary admission within the teen drama pantheon that still feels totally true to its characters. "He really loves what we've done with the show - at least that's what he said!". Tom McCarthy, best known as the writer and director of the Oscar-winning movie Spotlight, directed some of the episodes of the first season of the series and developed the show along with Brian Yorkey, who is listed as the show's creator.

But no matter how he could've acted, or even how he did, 13 Reasons Why suggests that no one, including Clay, is wholly "good". And that's what I had hoped 13 Reasons Why would focus on instead of a dramatic story line over getting revenge for those 13 people.

Spain set to gain veto over Gibraltar's status in EU Brexit talks
Gibraltar's chief minister Fabian Picardo has warned against Gibraltar being used as a bargaining chip during Brexit negotiations. It hands Spain, which has long held ambitions to reclaim sovereignty of the territory, significant power over Gibraltar's future.

"Our show @13reasonswhy came out tonight and I couldn't be more overwhelmed with pride and joy", the star wrote on Instagram of the series, which is based on a Jay Asher novel. One of her classmates, Clay Jensen, actually discovers the tapes and listens to Hannah explain how the actions of her peers actually caused her to take her own life.

Each tape, and each episode as it turns out, attempts to answer that question, as Hannah, "live and in stereo", reveals the reasons behind her suicide. But who knows, by the story's end, maybe it's Hannah who's the tormentor, and they're, in fact, the victims? "But we adored them both so much, we knew there was going to be chemistry - and we were right". They began in Northern California's Analy High School.

Selena opened up to "Extra's" Terri Seymour about her battles with depression and anxiety after her recent decision to take time away to complete treatment, confiding, "Trust me, it's a daily struggle".

Early on in the series, she gets labeled as a "slut" through a photo posted on social media and more old-fashioned forms of humiliation: gossip and writing on the bathroom walls.
