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.

About her latest album, Rare, Selena Gomez said that it gives a message of “Self love, acceptance, and empowerment.” Her previous songs “Look at her Now” and “Lose You To Love Me” are considered to base around her previous relationship with Justin Bieber.
“I think all I want for this record is for people to make it their own…for people to turn these messages into something great.”
