A unique tribute! Selena Gomez gave her new kidney a sweet name after she had it transplanted.
In an interview that was published on November 3, the 30-year-old star of Only Murders in the Building stated to Rolling Stone, “I named it after Fred Armisen because I love Portlandia.”Even though I haven’t met him, I’m hoping he finds out because I want him to think, “That’s weird.”
The 55-year-old co-creator of Saturday Night Live with Carrie Brownstein has not commented on Gomez’s tribute, but she has been open about her health journey over the years.
“I’m well aware that some of my fans had noticed that I had been quiet for a portion of the summer and wondered why I hadn’t promoted my brand-new music, of which I was extremely proud.As a result, I was recuperating after learning that my lupus necessitated a kidney transplant.In September 2017, two years after announcing her diagnosis, the founder of Rare Beauty wrote on Instagram, “It was what I needed to do for my overall health.”
Gomez discovered that Francia Raisa, a longtime friend, was a suitable transplant donor as she looked for one.
My kidneys were beginning to fail.My mentality was to keep going,” Gomez said of her “life or death” operation on a September 2017 episode of the Today Show.Francia] and I shared a home during the exciting time that my kidneys were being removed.That was it, and I didn’t want to ask anyone in my life anything else.I found asking someone else to do that extremely challenging.She contributed by volunteering.In addition, finding a match is extremely difficult, even for volunteers.It is unbelievable that she was a suitable match.That is not true.
The 34-year-old actress from How I Met Your Father was happy to help her friend in her time of need.
It’s been truly overwhelming and amazing.In January 2018, Raisa spoke exclusively to Us Weekly about publicly discussing their shared health journey. “I’m never really open about my personal life, and it’s amazing the response that I’ve been getting from people,” Raisa said.Sincerely, I feel honored….We are doing very well.
The singer of “Lose You to Love Me” has been open about her health issues for a long time, even starring in her documentary, “My Mind & Me,” which debuted earlier this month.
Gomez said in the Apple TV+ production about how her lupus caused depression episodes, “Knowing what to do and recognizing that is the essential part of it when you’re struggling with your mental health.”I don’t feel any remorse about it.Things had to be retaught.
She continued,I lost all sense of reality.It was like, “Hey, you are not a bad person, you are not a gross person, or anything like that.”However, you will have to deal with this.This is the reality, even though I know it’s a lot.’What’s more, I found having a relationship with bipolar and myself — being there is going.I’m simply letting my friend know.I believe that was what made me who I am, and I will continue to go through that.
