Selena Gomez talks about her kidney transplant with Francia Raísa
October 30th, 2017 under Selena Gomez. [ Comments: none ]

Last month, Selena Gomez revealed that she got a kidney transplant over the summer due to complications from Lupus and her friend Francia Raísa was her donor. Today, the two actresses talked about the transplant on Today.

Gomez knew she needed the transplant, but did not want to ask anyone for it. Then one day, when everyone in her family already did not match, she broke down to her roommate. As soon as Francia Raísa knew she needed a transplant, she offered to be tested. Before, the Secret Life of the American Teenager actress had a chance to think about it, they were on the operating table. Raísa went first, and everything went fine. Then it was time for Gomez and the surgery went fine. But then something went wrong in recovery and she went back into surgery for 6 more hours. That surgery was a sucess and Gomez knew she was on the mend. When she woke up her arthritis went away and her Lupus seems to be gone.

When Savannah Guthrie said to Gomez that it’s like her best friend saved her life, the singer told her, “Because she did. That’s it. I guess I got to the point where it was really kind of life or death.” That is how close they were to death. In fact, Raísa made out a will before she went under. But she did not need it.

Now we know more about kidney transplants and how they really can save lives. I am not saying to just donate an organ, but if someone you know needs ones, then consider it.

Selena Gomez got a kidney transplant due to her Lupus
September 14th, 2017 under Selena Gomez. [ Comments: none ]


Selena Gomez has been very open about her battle with Lupus and now she revealed a complication she had to endure because of it. Over the Summer, she needed to get a kidney transplant and her friend Francia Raisa, who starred in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, gave the singer one of hers. Gomez shared a message about the life-saving operation and gratitude on Instagram.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made. For more information regarding Lupus please go to the Lupus Research Alliance website: www.lupusresearch.org/

Hopefully the transplant will ease some of her Lupus symptoms.

She is not the only young actor to receive a kidney, Sarah Hyland got a kidney from her father back in 2012. Tracy Morgan and George Lopez also went through the same organ transplant before both actresses. As did the late Gary Coleman.

Selena Gomez finally got a new hairstyle!
April 26th, 2017 under Selena Gomez. [ Comments: 3 ]


Ever since Selena Gomez was a little girl, she has had the same hairstyle. Her hair was all one length. Not anymore because she chopped it off into a chin length, layered bob. I think it was a smart move because it makes her look more mature. To me she still looks just like she did when she did Barney. What do you think of her new do?

All I wanted for Christmas was the Carpool Karaoke
December 16th, 2016 under 50 Cent, Adele, Demi Lovato, Elton John, James Corden, Jonas Brothers, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Selena Gomez. [ Comments: none ]


Last year James Corden surprised us with a star studded Christmas Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show, and this year he followed it up with a bigger one. He asked Mariah Carey to sit in the drivers seat as they sang her huge Christmas hit, All I Want for Christmas. But what we didn’t know, he has been working on this since January. He had past passengers like Adele, Gwen Stefani, Elton John, Lady Gaga and shockingly Red Hot Chili Peppers sing the Billboard Holiday Chart Topper with him and created this epic version of the addictive tune. Now we have a new Christmas Classic for the years to come.

Selena Gomez tortures James Corden!
June 21st, 2016 under James Corden, Selena Gomez. [ Comments: 6 ]


Selena Gomez was James Corden’s latest victim for Carpool Karaoke, but she made The Late Late Show host her victim. She took him to Magic Mountain to ride a roller coaster as they sang her tunes, and he spent most of the time screaming them in fear.
What better way to help your throat after that? How about a shot of ginger. Oh wait, that made things so much worse for him.
Good thing there was a McDonald’s nearby, so they could get a cup of soda with her lyrics on it to soothe the throat after that.
Once the CBS host’s throat was feeling better it was time to Shake It Up and talk about him joining Taylor Swift’s Squad. If Selena has her way, he won’t be in it.
So looks like he won’t be in the Squad, but maybe he could get Swift to Carpool Karaoke with him to work one day.
