‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Red-Band Trailer Delivers NSFW Zombie Kills

Late a year ago, the former Disney star checked herself into a psychiatric facility in NY so that she could get one-on-one help dealing with anxiety and depression. "It just scares me", she explained.

"I understand that it's wonderful to use your platform, but it does scare me when you see how exposed these young girls and young boys are, and they are not really aware of the news or anything going on". I noticed with me, I got kind of depressed looking at these people who look attractive and wonderful, and it would just get me down a lot.

Gomez, who has been mobbed by autograph hunters in Cannes and dominated photo spreads from opening night on Tuesday, also warned about the fake news rampant on social media. She wrote, "Happy Mother's day Mom You've always been so strong and supported me in all my decisions, Specially in the past 1 month Always grateful for your blessings and support".

Gomez said pervasive internet bullying "scares" her and left many young people "devastated". It can be great in moments. "They're not really aware of the news or anything going on".

"But for my generation specifically, social media has been bad". I mean, you still can't tell me who the hell "Selena Gomez" is - but Gomez, as he calls her, "I really like". She's hardly the first person to speak out about it too, as her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber recently slammed the press and scolded rabid fans online for spreading misinformation that put completely false Jelena speculations back into the conversation.

The I Can't Get Enough singer kept in tune with her tailored look and wore her hair in a low chignon with a sleek middle part.

If there's one thing we all know about killing zombies, it's that you gotta go for the head.

Gomez's statement in her Cannes panel might reflect the singer's own anecdotal experiences, but scientific studies seem to back up her theory. Do Justin and Selena have a point here about the dangers of social media?
