QUICK QUOTES: Selena Gomez Covers Billboard Magazine & Reveals She Underwent Chemo For Lupus
Actress and singer Selena Gomez covers Billboard magazine and reveals she underwent chemotherapy for lupus. Get the scoop.
Inside the issue, the former Disney star revealed she underwent chemotherapy after being diagnosed with lupus.
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.
Unfortunately, when Selena checked into an Arizona rehad facility in January 2014 to get herself together, the tabloids had a field day with reports of addictions and mental breakdowns over her break up with Justin Bieber.
I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re a**holes.’ 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.
The 23-year-old singer is back on track and exploring her womanhood in her new music.
Her latest single, “Good For You,” is a saucy little jam that even took me by surprise.
Rapper A$AP Rocky, who appears on the remix, joked about Selena shedding her good girl image.
She’s developing her sexiness. I don’t think she’s there 100 percent yet. She’s probably only f**ked Justin Bieber, if that. But honestly, she wasn’t looking for a No. 1 hit. She did it to excommunicate herself from her image. That’s brave.
