| 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.

Video: Look Back At Jackie's Life With Our 2011 Interview

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!

| Filed under: Music MinuteShania TwainHealthSick

no title

2015 has been the year of cancelled concerts, and it looks like we've got yet another casualty on our hands.

Just a week after Kelly Clarkson announced that she was suspending the rest of her tour, another country superstar is following suit!

Shania Twain revealed on Tuesday night that she has been diagnosed with a respiratory infection and would have to take a break from singing to heal.

Luckily, the That Don't Impress Me Much singer is only taking two days off to recover and will be back in full form starting October 9 — but still, it must be hard for her to disappoint fans on such short notice.

So which celebs weren't as lucky as Shania and were forced to cancel considerably more of their shows??

Rapper Frost Says Eazy-E Contracted AIDS From Tainted Acupuncture Needles — Claims Another Artist Is Responsible, But WHO?!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsR.I.P.Conspiracy CornerHealthSickControversy

Do you think this is true???

It's been 20 years since Eazy-E passed away from AIDS, but with the recent success of Straight Outta Compton – which told the tale of E and all the other artists making up NWA — people are once again wondering just how the icon contracted the deadly disease in the first place.

And now, one rapper claims to know the truth about the late legend's untimely end. Frost, whose real name is Arturo Molina, Jr. opened up about the tragedy in an upcoming documentary called For the Record: The Story of Latinos in Hip Hop.

He says a man who — in West Coast rap — goes by "the devil" made sure Eazy's acupuncture needles contained the virus, saying:

"I'm-a tell you what happened with Eazy getting AIDS and I believe this to this day. I don't care if you guys got it on film. You can tell the world. They gave him tainted needles with acupuncture. Needles that tainted him, they gave it to him."

That's certainly one way to re-open a conspiracy theory. Frost was too anxious to reveal the suspect's actual name, but the late hitmaker was known to have an ongoing feud with Suge Knight.

In fact, after Straight Outta Compton was released, an old Jimmy Kimmel clip of an interview with the Death Row Records CEO made the internet rounds, showing the producer saying:

The Baywatch star hadn't talked too much about her diagnosis over the years, but now that things are taking a positive turn, she's ready to speak up about the disease, saying:

"I'm very fortunate that I've had Hep C for about 16 years. 16 years ago that was [presented to me] as a death sentence. I think it really worked on my self esteem. Even though I may have looked confident on the outside, I think it really was a dark cloud that lingered over me."

She's tried different medications in the past, but now Pam is moving on to a new process that's FDA-approved! These new drugs work to destroy the virus, and she says the outcome could be amazing!
