Selena Gomez Tells All: I was in Chemotherapy for Lupus

Selena Gomez dropped a bomb in a recent interview with Billboard magazine. The starlet has been laying low the last few months, prompting rumors to fly. Everything from addiction to alien abduction has probably been mentioned by somebody somewhere, and it turns out all of us are wrong. In her interview, she confessed to being diagnosed with Lupus and receiving chemotherapy as a treatment.

I was diagnosed with lupus, and I’ve been through chemotherapy. That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke.”

Looks like we all really missed the mark. While we were all talking trash and pretending she was on crack, Gomez was battling a chronic autoimmune disease, which causes a person’s body to indiscriminately attack its own healthy tissue.

“I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re assholes’. I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again.”

Gomez credits her return to confidence to the support of bestie Taylor Swift:

“The way she cares about women is so adamant. It’s pulling me out of my shell.”

Right on. It warms my heart to hear that Taylor is putting her discovery of feminism toward more than making Wonder bread middle school girls feel dangerous in the most non-threatening way you can buy.

Bottom line: Is Selena Gomez in rehab? No. No. No. Is Taylor Swift 1000 mice in a person suit? Maybe. Let’s talk about that.

So … a teenage girl is disturbed by the idea of thousands of creepy old men having sexual fantasies about her. This is what we used to call “healthy”.

Such objective journalism. You must be proud. Justin has actually been completely supportive of his girlfriend’s stint in a facility, which was clearly triggered by her psychotic mother dragging her for her role in a Woody Allen movie and her ongoing lupus condition.

Considering the author of this trash post claims he has – probably deservedly – suffered from depression, how repellent that he would seek to dump guilt undeservedly on Bieber’s shoulders over Selena’s timeout, which would exacerbate Bieber’s own depression (which he lives with and previously revealed). Kindness and accurate reporting matter.

Justin is not the cause of Selena ‘s depression. I think Selena works too much after her horrible year. If the author thinks that, it’s obvious he does not know anything in medicine. Having cancer does not make you an oncologist… If this fake journalist knowed anything in internal medicine, he would have heard of neuro-lupus even the main cause of Selena’s problem has a name : Mandy ! I think Justin is the solution and not the cause of Selena’s anxiety. When you see them together, there is a rare alchemy. As usually, RockrollerBlues has a good opinion about… Read more »

Having had a kidney transplant myself, you don’t just go back to partying. You are taking drugs that keep you alive, and without them your body will attack and destroy the new organ. Other substances can interfere with that balance, so you’re told to not do any drugs without consulting your kidney doctor first so they can greenlight them or not. The girl is an addict. Once and always. So she probably needs help because the consequences for her to relapse are higher than a normal person because of that new kidney. Plus, it is flat out disrespectful to the… Read more »

Do you know personnaly Miss Gomez ? Do you think that you say about any transplant (which is right), Miss Gomez does not know it ? What makes you think she is an addict ? Is it because she looks happy? Has she ever been taken (or Justin Bieber) with narcotics? If yes when? Do you think she is so inhuman and stupid to despise the wonderful gift that her friend Francia has made for her? Sorry, this seems to me to be a web of preconceived ideas. To be a millionaire does not make you a fool. What would… Read more »
