The 41-year-old posted an image of an open letter to the disease. It began by confronting the illness for all the trouble it has caused her, saying:

"Dear Lupus, You came uninvited like the thief you are. You invaded my body and my life silently and you have no mercy. You have stolen my life's work, my health, my vision of myself. You tear at my relationships with relentless teeth rending and damaging wherever and whenever you can."

But the brunette beauty explained that she's fighting back against the sickness, adding:

"However, you forgot when you planned your war. I am more than my work. Relationships worth having heal [or] stand steady under attack. I continue to rise again and again to reinvent myself. And most important, there is a part of me you can never touch without my permission, my soul. I am God's child and you can never take from me what I refuse to give."

The actress also shared another post of herself standing by a window. She captioned the strong snap with an inspirational poem that read:

In addition to looking smoking, the singer recently opened up further about her fight with lupus, adding that she's still not comfortable sharing too many details:

"It has been overwhelming and the response has been very supportive, which is nice — but it still makes me a little uncomfortable. I waited for the right time to talk about it because I am in a great place and I'm very healthy. I'm not trying to be loud about it: It was time to use my platform to help."

We're so glad to hear she's feeling healthy!

She certainly looked like the very picture of health at her Jingle Ball debut!

Despite some issues, the 23-year-old also admitted that 2015 was a good year overall:

"[2015 was] a good 8 [out of 10]. A lot of ups and downs, but they helped shape who I am."

We think that professionally this has definitely been an AH-Mazing year for Selenita!

May 2015 be twice as good!

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

Filed under: Selena GomezHealthSickScary!

So scary!

Woah.

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!
