We don’t use do serious on this website, but we think today we have to so that we can speak about this story properly. Selena Gomez has been speaking to Billboard about why her new album ‘Revival’ has taken her so long and revealed that she was diagnosed with lupus in 2013 and has been receiving chemotherapy treatment.
“That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke,” the singer revealed.
Selena cancelled concerts in Australia and Asia as part of her Stars Dance Tour and hit headlines as a result, with rumours of admittance to rehab but she has now revealed the reason behind her sudden disappearance from the spotlight.
“I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re a**holes’. I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again. I’m so f***ing nice to everybody and everyone is so vile to me. I’ve been working since I was 7. I’ve been a UNICEF ambassador since I was 17. It’s so disappointing that I’ve become a tabloid story.”
We hope you’re better now, Selena!
