Selena Gomez to feature on Coach’s first-ever podcast


Coach collaborator Selena Gomez is helping the fashion label launch its brand new podcast.

Selena has been working closely with Coach boss Stuart Vevers since late 2016, when she signed a reported $10 million deal to model and design for the label.

Now she’s been tapped to appear on Coach’s first-ever Dream It Real podcast.

“Authenticity is, for me, not minding being myself anymore,” she says in the episode. “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.”

According to WWD, Selena will also open up about her thoughts on social media, self-acceptance, her collaboration with Cardi B, and her upcoming album.

Dream It Real, a weekly podcast hosted by writer and editor Heben Nigatu, launches on Wednesday (April 24, 2019), and intends to be a platform to inspire young people to follow their dreams.

Fellow Coach ambassador Michael B. Jordan will appear on the second episode, where he’ll talk about Hollywood inclusion, overcoming insecurity as a young actor and his dream to one day open a school.

And future guests include Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams, Dear Evan Hansen star Ben Platt, and Coach creative director Stuart.

Carlos Becil, global chief marketing officer of Coach, shared his excitement over the new podcast in a statement.

“I am excited to launch the Dream It Real podcast, a thought-provoking and inspiring series of unfiltered conversations,” he said. “Our goal is to continue our commitment to empowering young people, and to provide a platform where they can simply be themselves and find the confidence they need to create the world they envision.”
