This is some tough news for Selena Gomez. The songstress has released a statement to People letting her fans know that she is taking some time off in order to take care of herself and her overall health, since she has been dealing with issues relating to her lupus diagnosis.
"As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways. I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges," Selena said. "I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues."
Sel is making a super tough, yet brave choice to step away from the spotlight for a little bit while she simply works on getting herself better. She was scheduled to continue her Revival World Tour all the way until the end of 2016, so it remains unclear as of right now what is going to happen to those shows and if they are just postponed until a later date or canceled. What matters most is that the songstress takes care of her health, and that's exactly what she needs to be doing right now.
