In 2017, Selena Gomez underwent a kidney transplant, which she needed due to complications from lupus. The best friend of the singer Francia Rice was the donor of the kidney.
Selena talked about how difficult that time was for her. And recently, the singer decided to show the scar from the operation as a sign that she has found inner harmony and accepted her body.
Gomez posted a photo in a blue swimsuit and showed off a large scar in her groin. On the microblog, she wrote:
After the kidney transplant, it was very difficult for me not to hide the scar. I didn’t want to be seen in the photographs, so I always dressed to cover it. And now I feel more confident than ever before. I am proud of who I am and what I have gone through. Each body is beautiful in its own way.
By the way, Selena was included in the list of 100 influential people in the world according to Time magazine. The compilers of the list noted her successful music and television career, as well as activist activities. Probably the fact that Selena began to talk a lot and openly about personal problems and support girls with similar problems also influenced her getting on the list.
