Coach launches podcast series with Selena Gomez as its first guest
today Apr 24, 2019
The singer and actress features in the debut episode of "Dream It Real," a new weekly podcast series being launched today by the heritage US fashion brand.
The series, which aims to "support the next generation as they envision and create the future they know is possible," will see the writer and editor Heben Nigatu interview celebrity guests and inspirational people about their dreams -- both for themselves and for the future.
Gomez's episode sees her discuss everything from social media and self-acceptance to her collaboration with the rapper Cardi B and her upcoming album. "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."
Episode number two will see the actor and producer Michael B. Jordan talk about courage, with "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams and songwriter Ben Platt stepping up to the mike for episode three.
"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," said Carlos Becil, Global Chief Marketing Officer of Coach, in a statement.
Gomez has been working with Coach since 2016, when she was first unveiled as a brand ambassador for the heritage label. Jordan was unveiled as the face of the brand's menswear division earlier this year.
"Dream It Real" is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and other channels.
