Selena Gomez finally opens up and reveals details about important chapters in her life to a leading magazine! The Taki Taki singer speaks about her kidney transplant, her long battle with lupus, and her current mental health situation.
Starting with her battle with Lupus Gomez revealed, “The lupus was a huge thing that happened to me, then the kidney thing happened, and that was the scariest because, yeah, you could actually die, The transplant was a two-hour surgery. The moment I came out I remember starting to shake and my mom screaming and then being put back under. Due to complications, the surgery lasted another seven hours, and in the process the doctors had to use arteries from my legs. That’s what makes you go, You know what, I’m just so happy to be alive.”
Talking about mental health, the songstress revealed, “I feel like I was supposed to go through everything I’ve gone through. I had low self-esteem, and that’s something I work on continuously. But I feel so empowered because I’ve gained so much knowledge about what was going on mentally. My highs were really high, and my lows would take me out for weeks at a time. I found out I do suffer from mental health issues. And, honestly, that was such a relief. I realized that there was a way to get help and to find people that you trust. I got on the right medication, and my life has been completely changed.”
The 27-year-old Lose You To Love Me singer is all set to release her brand new album Rare on January 10th this year after releasing 2 super hits last year including Look At Her Now.
