Selena Gomez Takes a Break Due to Lupus

Published

For those who do not know, singer Selena Gomez recently made the decision to take a break from her music career. The main reason why she made this decision is because Gomez wants to deal with the depression and panic attacks that come as side effects of lupus, a condition from which she suffers. Gomez has confirmed that she has been diagnosed with lupus about a year ago.

Gomez told her fans the heartbreaking news during her Revival tour. Lupus is a disease of the immune system which can cause damage various body parts. The condition has been said to affect an estimated five million people in the whole world. According to the Lupus Foundation of America, In the United States alone, lupus affects about a million people.

Lupus affects different people differently. It is true that some patients deal with it differently too. The effects of the condition include hair loss, mouth ulcers, stiffness in the joints, dryness of the eyes, fatigue, shortness of breath and even heart problems. Some people who suffer from lupus also experience anemia, hallucinations and memory loss.

The Come & Get It singer’s decision to take a break from her career came as sad news to her fans. Most fans were concerned whether she would leave the tour unfinished or complete it before taking the break. The singer decided to try and focus on her health and maintain her happiness. According to her, the best way to do that would be to take some time off the road and public eye.

Selena Gomez had announced her decision only a few weeks after a dramatic social media feud that fired up between her and ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. The famous pop-star, who found her fame in her teenage years as a Disney star, also had her Stars Dance tour cancelled back in 2014. The tour, which was cancelled while halfway done, was connected to her lupus diagnosis.

Back in 2015, on an interview with Billboard, Gomez revealed that the reason why she cancelled her Stars Dance tour was because she was undergoing chemotherapy to treat lupus, though there had been rumors that she was under substance abuse. She revealed that the chemotherapy made her lock herself up until she could find the confidence to come back again.

The current break, Gomez said, was not as a result of any substance abuse. Instead, she simply wanted a break because the effects of lupus could be challenging for anyone going through the condition.
