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.
