Interesting facts about Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez, a former Disney and now a great music star is a rarity on the public stage. Apart from the fact that she was and remained under public scrutiny due to her relationship with Justin Bieber, her career was not followed by scandals, and there are many things that no one knows about her.

She suffers from lupus

One unfortunate health fact about Selena is that she suffers from an autoimmune disease called lupus. Lupus is quite deadly, and because of it, she was forced to cancel part of the tour in 2013 in order to dedicate herself to the fight against the disease. It is said that during this period she had to go to chemotherapy. Lupus can be treated, but not cured, so it is something she will have to fight all his life. 

Selena once stated that it was difficult for her when the world found out that she was ill. “I think it was very complicated because I just didn't understand it and it's something I wanted to keep private. And then my whole life was left without privacy.”

She is a great shopaholic

Selena loves to go shopping, especially when she buys clothes. Regarding this, we can freely say that she is not at all different from all the girls of her age. On one occasion, she posted a short video on her Instagram account with a bunch of things she bought and wrote: "I swear to you, I only went for ONE thing!" 

She drinks olive oil for her voice

Selena's first singing tip: drink olive oil. She discovered this habit in 2011 and is not the only singer to do so. Olive oil is not used constantly, but only if there are problems with the throat or before very important performances. 

She eats the whole lemon!

One of the strangest facts about Selena is that she likes to eat whole lemons with peel and with a little salt. 

She was named after the famous singer

Selena Quintanilla was a famous music star at the end of the 20th century, who tragically died. Selena Gomez was named after her, and she followed in her footsteps into the waters of music. “My parents were Selena's big fans. My name was supposed to be Priscilla, but my dad decided to be Selena in the end.”

She is a big fan of the "Friends" series.

As she explained, this cult series helps her not to feel lonely when she is alone on the road. I helped her a lot when she was just starting to fight lupus.

She doesn't like social networks

Although she is the fifth most followed person in the world on the social network Instagram, she often says that she does not like social platforms. For a while, she even withdrew from the nets while fighting the disease. She stated that she hates Twitter.
