Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) Update: taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.
Gomez has been open in the past about her health issues.
In 2015, the told Billboard she took a break from the spotlight because she had Lupus.
“I was diagnosed with lupus, and I’ve been through chemotherapy,” the singer said. “That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke.”
