Selena Gomez Opens Up About Childhood Insecurities in Coach’s ‘Dream It Real’ Podcast

Selena Gomez is getting candid in Coach‘s upcoming Dream It Real podcast!

The “Back To You” crooner and global face of Coach, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, and Creed actor and global face of Coach menswear Michael B. Jordan all share their thoughts in the first episodes to help inspire the new generation.

Hosted by writer and editor Heben Nigatu, who in 2016 was named one of Forbes’ “30 Under 30,” the series features interviews with celebrity guests and more about their dreams for themselves and for the future.

The debut episode, available tomorrow, features Selena on the subject of authenticity, a value championed by Coach—and its customers. The conversation reveals her thoughts on social media and self-acceptance, her collaboration with Cardi B, and her approach to her upcoming album.

“Every song is a story that I’ve experienced,” Selena says. “There’s nobody that’s going to tell my story better than myself. … Authenticity is, for me, not minding being myself anymore. I’ve always wanted to be me, but when I was younger, I was very insecure. I started in this industry really young, and I think that you kind of create this other persona of yourself.”

The second episode, which will be released on May 1, features Michael on the subject of courage. In it, he discusses inclusion in Hollywood, overcoming insecurity as a young actor and his dream to one day open a school.

Following episodes will feature Maisie, actor and songwriter Ben Platt, and Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers. In addition, every episode will feature the story of an inspiring young person, such as Los Angeles teenager Lesseya, a singer, dancer and artist whose dreams go beyond her own, featured in the debut episode.

The Dream It Real podcast series is released weekly on Wednesdays and is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and other channels.
