Selena Gomez wants to make sure that her fans are staying safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The singer was promoting her new movie, The Broken Hearts Gallery, which is premiering this week on select theatres. Selena is the executive producer of the movie, which stars Geraldine Viswanathan and Dacre Montgomery.
The movie centers on Lucy, a New York art gallery assistant who was dumped by her boyfriend, and after running into the same guy over and over again, teams up with him to creates an exhibit for souvenirs from past relationships.
The Rare Beauty founder took to her social media to announce the first look at the trailer and the premiere of the movie. She informed her fans that the movie comes out on Friday. Selena also expressed her excitement on producing a movie which is directed and written by a first time female filmmaker.
However, she asks her fans to be careful about watching the movie in theatres. She wrote, “although you can see this movie in some theaters, remember that COVID-19 is not fake news. So please follow safety guidelines in order to enjoy the movie experience with the lowest risk possible.”
The singer has been making the best out of her quarantine time as she just launched her beauty line. She also has been busy with filming her own cooking show for HBO Max, Selena + Chef. Selena also announced that she will be a co-executive producer for a comedy series.
The singer is ready for the world to see her new beauty line, Rare Beauty. Selena Gomez wants fans and followers to know that the launch of the makeup line is not to earn more money for her.
“I Wanted This To Feel Like a Community”
During a virtual press conference, Selena revealed that she is excited about the products to be launched. She reveals the reason that she created Rare Beauty was to challenge the beauty space. “I didn’t want to be just a celebrity attaching her name to something, because that’s definitely not my style. I would feel very disingenuous,” she added.
Selena reveals that for her the beauty world can help with mental health and she wanted to explore this with her beauty line. She revealed that two years ago when they were having a conversation about the beauty line, it sort of merged with her mental health and the relationship that one can have with themselves.
The singer expressed that it is about the mind, body, and soul. Selena said, “I just know that there is such a stigma… I wanted this to feel like a community, where people talk about that and where they knew they were always welcome.”
Earlier this year, Rare Beauty made an announcement on Selena’s birthday in July. Selena also made a special announcement on her 28th birthday about Rare Beauty and what it will be doing. Prior to launching her beauty line, Selena has decided to give back in the most important way.
Selena revealed that Rare Beauty had launched the Rare Impact Fund. This fund will collect $100 million over the next ten years. Not just that, this money will be used to help fill the gaps in mental health services.
Rare Beauty Makes Mental Health Services Better
She revealed that from the first product sale onward, one percent of all sales will be directed to the fund. Also, funds raised from partners will be dedicated to the Rare Impact Fund. The Impact Fund aims to be the largest known funds in support of mental health.
Selena expressed her gratitude towards her team for helping her make the Rare Impact Fund in a statement. She said since she started the brand they wanted to find a way to give back to our community. The singer said she wanted to support people who needed access to mental health services. It has a big part to play in her life.
