Selena Gomez opens up about her health.
In early 2014, rumors hit surface of Gomez going to rehab due to substance abuse and relationship troubles which all is false.
Gomez told Billboard that the real reason she took a break was because she was diagnosed with Lupus.
The singer states:
“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. 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.”
In addition, Gomez stated:
“I’m so 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.”
Earlier in the month, Gomez told USA Today:
“Not to sound cheesy. Literally, I feel like this industry has the ability to make you really hate people. Just the people I have come into contact with in the press and stuff like that, it’s really disappointing to see what society and fame has become. But my heart hasn’t changed. I care about people. I would love to go to dinner with everybody and just hang out and talk, and I love my fans. My fans are the only thing that’s been consistent in my life.”
