Giving Generation “Vodcast” Premiere with Selena Gomez


Tatu Social Media platform welcomed celebrity guests, LA socialites and mental health advocates to preview Seasons 2 & 3 of Raquelle Steven’s Giving Generation Series. Guests included interviewees from the show like Selena Gomez, Tanya Rad, Taylor Ann Thompson & Emil Nava and was supported by other women in the industry like music legend, Diane Warren, Best-Selling Personal Development Author, Erika De La Cruz and founder of The Giving Keys, Caitlin Crosby.


Crowds gathered at the London Hotel to preview a trailer of Raquel Stevens’ Giving Back Generation. Each episode includes a sit down conversation with a celebrity guest, exploring deep and personal experiences. The premiere brought several of those guests out for a live panel discussion on the importance of sharing these issues publicly. Attendees were treated to an 8 minute trailer of the series that showed a sneak peek into more of the seasons’ interviews with guests like Jay Shetty, Radhi Shetty, Leah Haywood, Gabe Kennedy and of course, Selena Gomez. Selena came out to support her long time friend’s series premiere and enjoy watching clips of her own vulnerable conversation with Raquelle. 


The soiree took place at The London West Hollywood at Beverly Hills. Guests were led into a quaint welcome room, complete with Tatu-branded popcorn & still and sparkling water. Some attendees grabbed cocktails before heading into the theater, to enjoy during  the panel. After a meaningful discussion, guests mingled outside the theater and were led into a side venue of the hotel, where fish and chips, caprese salads and pork sliders circled the afterparty. Guests enjoyed a full taco bar and champagne to continue the conversations and wound down with music from DJ Cassanova.


We LOVE events with big “whys” and this certainly hit the mark. Giving Generation season 2 and 3 are conversations to reduce loneliness amongst us all. Tackling issues from eating disorder struggles, to alcoholism to simply being kind, these conversations are the deep ones that people typically can’t find anywhere online. Mental Health Month may have ended, but that doesn’t mean the conversations about mental health can’t continue. No matter who you are, you are struggling with something in your life. Sharing those things can be freeing for others to hear and begin to positively normalize topics like mental health.
