Selena Gomez on '13 Reasons Why' debut: I'm

Katherine Langford as Hannah Baker in Netflix's "13 Reasons Why". Her classmate Clay (Minnette) takes it upon himself to confront the individuals that led to Hannah's demise.

Not only that, but since it was published by Razorbill in 2007, it has remained on the New York Times bestseller list for eight straight years. They're both executive producers on the series. The teen fiction seems to be the hottest new series in the town and is already being liked by the most.

"It was really appealing to me, [but] I really did consider it very seriously because it's so heavy - my character, what she goes through - that I was like, do I want to put myself in that place for seven months?" However, as someone who has been through the aftermath of losing a friend to suicide, emotionally absorbing this book happened whether I meant to or not.

"I want to be a part of this because I think this is what they want, this is what they need". "That's when I was in the vehicle driving and I immediately felt that was the best way to tell this particular story".

Last August, the "Kill 'Em With Kindness" singer released a statement that she was opting to take a break to focus on her health and well-being. "As insane and hard and challenging as it is for adults to navigate and learn how to use it and learn how to exercise limitations and some etiquette, we're making it up as we go along". The said character is going to play a vital role as the show progresses.

Destiny 2 Officially Announced; Everything We Know So Far
On the other hand, promotional material indicates that the game will debut on September 8 and will also have a Beta. How long it will be and whether we'll catch a decent glimpse at some gameplay remains to be seen.

Dem senator warns of political danger on Supreme Court vote
Democrats need 41 votes to sustain a filibuster. "I am not comfortable with either choice", McCaskill said in a statement. If the 52 Republicans cannot find eight Democrats to join them in voting for cloture, that could alter the Senate rules.

Ousted South Korean Leader Park Geun-hye Arrested On Corruption Charges
Park has said she only let Choi edit some of her presidential speeches and got her help on "public relations" issues. If issued the arrest warrant, Park would be the third South Korean former leader to be taken into custody.

Hannah leaves behind a series of audiotapes, each one revealing more layers to her and her life. "I was a little more defensive", she said. It's a small tweak to pop culture's general conception of the suicidal, but it's one that so perfectly understands the pain of high school life.

13 Reasons Why boasts enough juicy plot twists and compelling mysteries to sustain a dozen seasons, and for the first half of the series, that's good enough to keep the viewer addicted. If Hannah's 13 friends felt like they could talk to their parents, teachers, or counselors, the series may have ended a lot differently. "There was a puppy per hour", Minnette recalled in a recent interview.

"Our show @13reasonswhy came out tonight and I couldn't be more overwhelmed with pride and joy", Gomez wrote. I heard her stories growing up. There are so many artists on the soundtrack that I'm so proud of. Arcade Fire, The Shins and Bon Iver for starters. On Wednesday, Gomez tweeted a teaser for the series featuring a cover of the song "Only You".

"Some things, you know, just don't have simple explanations, right?" A roster of interesting directors was recruited, including arthouse stylist Gregg Araki and Oscar-winning documentarian Jessica Yu, and they coax warm and lived-in performances from the young cast.
