Selena Gomez Wore Blue Nail Polish To Relay Secret Message At ’13 Reasons Why’ Premiere?

Selena Gomez reportedly wore a certain shade of blue nail polish to the 13 Reasons Why Netflix premiere in order to broadcast a secret message to her fans.

Selena Gomez was styled by famed celebrity stylist Kate Young for the premiere of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why in a metallic orange Oscar de la Renta mini dress, shoulder-grazing earrings, and one very important shade of bright blue nail polish.

According to Bravo, Gomez, 24, wore the electric blue nail polish for a very particular reason. Her nail artist, Tom Bachik, posted a photo to his Instagram account with a cryptic message about the nail polish.

The 13-episode Netflix series, executive produced by Selena Gomez and her mom Mandy Teefey, is based on the young adult novel about a teenager who uses clues to discover why a classmate committed suicide.

Depression is often referred to as “feeling blue”

This shade of blue was chosen because it had a deep, emotional significance to the plot of the Netflix series.

The cassette tapes which the main character Hannah recorded her story on were marked and numbered in blue nail polish. She was also wearing the color on the last day of her life.

More people need to talk about depression

Depression is a notable theme in the plot of 13 Reasons Why and it is also something that Gomez personally struggles with.

The pop star infamously canceled the remainder of her Revival tour last fall in order to check into a rehab for 90-days to deal with her depression and anxiety issues which stemmed from her lupus diagnosis.

Selena said herself that dealing with her depression is a “daily struggle.” During her speech at the American Music Awards in November after taking months off, Gomez discussed the fact that she got help when she needed it and that more people need to be able to ask for help when they are suffering.

Selena found happiness and love again

The 24-eyar-old had a chance to focus on her own health and happiness and has even found love again with her new boyfriend, R&B singer The Weeknd.

Selena has been following her new beau, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, across the world on his music tour but left him to come to the premiere of her beloved project.

13 Reasons Why is a story close Selena’s heart. This was also the first professional producing work she had done with her mother, who has a background in production.

On the night of the premiere, Selena shared how “overwhelmed with pride and joy” she was with how the series had turned out.
