Selena Gomez’s “Fetish” is Symptomatic of a Sick Popular Culture

from Vigilant Citizen.com:

In the music video for Fetish, Selena Gomez harms herself in all kinds of painful and degrading ways, while displaying symptoms of severe mental issues. The video is considered “hot”. Something is seriously wrong with pop culture.

Selena Gomez is a classic example of them child star who garners millions of young fans and then introduces them to the debasing, depraved, and sex-based culture of the entertainment industry.

After appearing on the TV show Barney and Friends, Gomez was recruited by the Disney Channel to appear on Hannah Montana (starring Miley Cyrus, another ex-Disney star gone wild). Gomez then was given her own Disney Channel show, Wizards of Waverly Place, which became a big hit and caused Gomez to gain millions of fans worldwide.

In 2014, Gomez fired her mother and stepfather as her managers (they had managed Gomez since her career began) and signed with WME and Brillstein companies. Later that year, Gomez signed with Interscope Records. Like Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and countless other children raised by/in the industry (especially from the Disney Network), Gomez proceeded to launch a solo career that introduced her young fans to a new, over-sexualized Selena with content that is heavily tainted by the elite’s agenda.

In 2016, Gomez canceled the remaining 34 dates of her Revival world tour to check into a rehab facility for 3 months for “undisclosed mental health issues”. In the industry, “rehab” is oftentimes a code word for “re-programming”.

13 Reasons Why That Ain’t Right

Shortly after emerging from rehab, Gomez served as executive producer of the “hit” Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. The series has been a source of constant controversy due to its graphic, and some say glamorous, depiction of suicide.

“Mental health experts describe the show as worrisome and point to how its relatable characters and graphic depiction of suicide can pose a health risk for young people already struggling with mental health issues.”

A study recently revealed that the show was linked to a rise in suicide-related web searches, notably “How to commit suicide”.

“After the premiere of “13 Reasons Why,” the search phrase “how to commit suicide” rose 26% above what would normally have been expected for that time; “suicide prevention” went up 23%; and “suicide hotline number” climbed 21%, based on the paper’s data. “The time for rhetorical debate is over,” said John Ayers, research professor at San Diego State University and lead author of the paper. “While ’13 Reasons Why’ has certainly caused the conversation to begin — it’s raised awareness, and we do see a variety of suicide-related searches increasing — our worst fears were confirmed,” he said. “That is, thousands of people, thousands more, are searching online about ways to kill themselves.”

Some researchers also argue that the show might have a negative impact on some teenagers with existing mental-health issues.

“Looking at it from a prevention standpoint, it’s concerning when a young person already has a prehistory or an existing mental health problem with anxiety, depression, and, for a smaller group, actually psychotic illnesses,” Schwartz said, adding that such illnesses are risk factors for suicidal behavior. “If a young person has a history of serious mental health or substance concerns, then obviously that adds a layer of vulnerability” when consuming media about suicide, he said.

In short, Gomez is at the helm of a show that fosters an unhealthy fascination with suicide in the minds of young people. Some argue that the show is “raising awareness” about suicide, not glamorizing it. If that is the case, why would the show’s executive producer, Selena Gomez, appear in a music video where she harms herself in a “sexy” video? Isn’t that specifically glamorizing suicide?

Those guiding and funding popular culture seem bent on debasing and demoralizing the youth. As a result, popular culture is depressing, promotes self-destruction, and is helping to create a generation of sick, debased, and vulnerable humans.

Fetish

In Fetish, Selena appears completely “out of it”. Is she on drugs? Is she mentally ill? Is she under mind control? Is she possessed by the devil? All of the above? Who knows. One thing is for sure, she is not OK.

The video begins with a nice shot of a summer sky with birds chirping. Then this flashes on screen:
