Selena Gomez

You go, girl!

Selena Gomez is tired of being a victim of the tabloids and is setting the record straight once and for all.

As we reported, the 23-year-old former Disney star revealed the real reason for her break from the public eye in 2014 — a lupus diagnosis that forced her to undergo chemotherapy.

When the Same Old Love singer cancelled the last leg of her Stars Dance tour for "personal reasons," rumors swirled that it had something to with alcohol addiction following her breakup from Justin Bieber.

But that just wasn't the case!

Her autoimmune disorder — which is currently in remission — was flaring up at the time, and the risk for a potential stroke was at an all time high.

The tabloid gossip really took a toll on the pop star. She shared:

"I've never had a problem with drinking. I felt like I'd lost everything. Just because it's not plastered everywhere doesn't mean I didn't have my rock bottom. I've had my moments, and it's almost unsafe for me to even talk about them, because I'll be taken advantage of."

We're happy to hear Selena is much healthier now, and taking the pop charts by storm. Good for You her!

We're just glad she's okay!

Kim Zolciak-Biermann has had a pretty strange last few weeks after joining Dancing with the Stars, suffering a mini stroke, and being forced to withdraw from the ABC reality series.

And while she was pissed about her elimination at first, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has now come to terms with her fate on the show and is speaking out about her current health status.

During an interview with Good Morning America on Thursday, the mother-of-six revealed that doctors found a small hole in her heart after her stroke, so the scary situation was actually a "blessing in disguise!"

Jackie Collins' Team Releases Final Message After Her Death — Read Her Last Words To Her Fans

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadBookzHealthCancerSick

Take a look at her inspiring letter.

Jackie Collins may have passed away last month, but we're just now getting to read the final words she had for her fans.

The best-selling novelist died at the age of 77, after losing a 7-year battle with breast cancer. But now — on her website — her team has released the last letter she wrote to her supporters.

In her message, The Santangelos author stressed the importance of getting tested regularly, in order to catch cancer early on:

"As you may have recently heard, I revealed that I have been LIVING life to the fullest with Stage 4 Breast Cancer for the past six and a half years. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my message is this: Early detection can save lives! Get regular mammograms, and/or tell your loved ones too. Low cost or free mammograms are offered through many national programs and community organizations, so do your research. Even if you've been screened, and you have a gut feeling that something in your body is off, get a second opinion!"

She expressed that, if you do get diagnosed with the disease, it's important to remain optimistic, writing:

Selena Gomez Reveals She's Gone Through Chemotherapy & Finally Opens Up About Having Lupus!

| Filed under: Selena GomezHealthSickScary!

So scary!


Selena Gomez is revealing just how much she's been through in Billboard's October 17 issue — and it's a LOT. The pop princess broke her silence about being diagnosed with lupus, but also shocked us all when she let another secret slip.

The Disney darling underwent chemotherapy.

In a snippet from her upcoming interview, the brunette beauty explained exactly why she took some time off. She expressed just how frustrated she was that tabloids were reporting that it was because of addiction, saying:

"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."

People first began speculating that the actress-slash-singer was battling lupus back in 2013 when she canceled some of her tour dates.

But, now she's finally opening up about the diagnosis, and even admits that the frustration she feels with the media helped inspire her new music:

"I'm so f*cking 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. The hate motivated me."

She also dished about the haters who targeted her fuller figure earlier this year, saying:

"I was in a bikini and got publicly ripped for being overweight. That was the first time I'd experienced body shaming like that. I believed some of the words they were saying.

The artist says that's the real reason she's baring it all on the cover of her upcoming album, Revival.

We're thrilled that she seems to be in a happier and healthier place now, since she was all smiles when she announced she'll be going on tour next year.

Way to bounce back, Selena!
