Remember when Selena Gomez went off the radar and needed to lay low for ti take time for herself, well it was to undergo treatment for Lupus. “I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re assholes.’ But I was angry I even felt the need to say that. It’s awful walking into a restaurant and having the whole room look at you, knowing what they’re saying. I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again.” She tell Billboard, “I was diagnosed with [autoimmune disease] lupus, and I’ve been through chemotherapy. That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke.”
Her Lupus is now in remission, but she stays healthy with “diet, routine and medication,” and good friends. Selena goes on to add that the hate that was thrown her way only motivated her new album Revival. “I’m so f—ing nice to everybody, and everyone is so vile to me. I’ve been working since I was 7. I’ve been a UNICEF ambassador since I was 17. It’s so disappointing that I’ve become a tabloid story. It took away everything I loved about this business.” She seems like a boxer getting in the ring…ready to fight!
