It seems like Selena Gomez is on top of the world right now, releasing new singles and her entire album REVIVAL drops tomorrow! However, the singer revealed why she stepped out of the limelight for awhile.
Selena was diagnosed with lupus and she told Billboard Magazine how this disease has effected her. She even admitted to having underwent chemotherapy to help the symptoms of this chronic illness.
She said, "That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke." Our hearts go out to Selena and her family during such a scary and serious time.
Selena continued, "I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy...' I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again."
Aww, we're happy she now feels confident to open up about her struggle and maybe even raise some awareness for the disease. We can't wait to see her on tour and wish her all the best!
Make sure to leave Selena a sweet message in the comments below!
