Stop complaining about having no power. Selena Gomez got a kidney transplant

Quit your whining.

OK, so you went through Hurricane Irma and have no power or Internet.

But at least you’re not waiting around to see if your new kidney rejects you.

This is what Selena Gomez is dealing with right now.

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.

Puts things into perspective, doesn’t  it?

Yes, the beloved Same Old Love singer, who has struggled with lupus,shocked fans Thursday with an Instagram post announcing she had undergone major surgery over the summer.

Her longtime friend, actress Francia Raisa, was the donor.

Gomez added “there aren’t words to describe” how she can thank Raisa, who she says gave “the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney.”

The 25-year-old pop star called the transplant “what I needed to do for my overall health.”

Lupus is an autoimmune disease, where the body mistakenly attacks its own tissues.
