Netflix's 13 Reasons Why Premiere: Will You Keep Listening, Uh, Watching?

New teen drama 13 Reasons Why launches on Netflix this Friday 31 March, and star Katherine Langford will immediately draw you in as teenager Hannah Baker.

On Wednesday, Gomez added her new cover of "Only You" to the trailer of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, a show she executive produced. On Wednesday, the 24-year-old singer posted a video on Twitter debuting her own rendition of the '80s hit "Only You". While 13 Reasons Why will undoubtedly appeal to teen viewers, it's the dynamic between Hannah and her parents and other "grown-ups" that makes the show both a must-watch and an incredibly hard watch for adults.

Dylan Minnette, who plays Clay Jensen, one of Hannah's classmates and the recipient of the audio recordings, said Gomez came in at the end of production and welcomed everyone to the project.

Click through the gallery to see the dazzling red carpet looks from the 13 Reasons Why premiere. Tom McCarthy, best known as the writer and director of the Oscar-winning movie Spotlight, directed some of the episodes of the first season of the series and developed the show along with Brian Yorkey, who is listed as the show's creator.

Angry mob attacks Africans in India after teen's death
Five people have been arrested by the police in Uttar Pradesh in connection with the attack. Last year, a Congolese national was stoned to death in a dispute over an auto-rickshaw.

But Clay isn't the first person to have received the tapes. "I like being with like-minded people", she said. When teen Hannah (Langord) takes her life, she leaves behind tapes explaining the 13 reasons she made a decision to do so. The box of cassettes, per Hannah's instructions, are to be passed around to each of these people (all but one of them a fellow student) so that they can listen to them and truly understand her pain - and wallow in it as deeply as they like. So here's my question for you: Will you keep following Hannah's story? Not only did Bryce rape both Jessica and Hannah, but he wasn't the least bit sorry about it. Clay was able to trick Bryce into confessing to Hannah's rape on tape, but does Bryce go to jail on 13 Reasons Why? (Compared to the book, Clay is also much less a dippy innocent here, which I really appreciated.) Minnette is so dedicated to playing despondent that the relief and pleasure in brief scenes of flirty banter between Hannah and Clay is palpable.

The latest beauty trend celebs have been rocking lately is bright eyeshadow & Selena Gomez has officially joined in with her bold orange look!

That is all we will share about the show at this time! In other words, it's the ultimate passive-aggressive "fuck you", the fantasy of every depressed adolescent who dreams about offing themselves as a way of making those around them feel guilty.
