SELENA GOMEZ BREAKS SOCIAL MEDIA SILENCE – (01/15/2019)
Selena Gomez has written a message to fans to wish them a happy new year, breaking her social media silence that started back in September.
The 26-year-old singer told fans on September 23, 2018, that she would be taking a break from social media. She emerged before the holidays in photos with her friends.
“It’s been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support,” Selena wrote on Instagram. “Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.”
As for the “challenges” Gomez faced in 2018, she elaborated in her September Instagram post that explained why she was taking a “social media break.” She wrote at the time, “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.”
The following month, news broke that Gomez was seeking treatment for her mental health after suffering an “emotional breakdown.” That news came after she was reportedly hospitalized twice due to low white blood cell count, a complication that can arise in kidney transplant patients.
KATY PERRY ONCE SUSPENDED FROM SCHOOL FOR ‘MAKING SEXUAL MOTIONS’ AT A TREE – (01/15/2019)
Katy Perry was suspended from sixth grade years ago when she pretended a tree was Tom Cruise and “began making sexual motions” towards the tree.
The 34-year-old took a trip down memory lane and posted the suspension notice on her Instagram Story for all her followers to read.
“At the 2:00pm recess, Katy and four other students were in an ‘off-limits’ area (behind the backboards) practicing a skit. Katy pretended that a tree was Tom Cruise and began making sexual motions (‘pelvic thrusts’) to the tree,” the suspension notice read. “When Katy met with [her teachers] she was asked to describe or demonstrate what she had been seen doing in the playground in front of some other students. Katy chose to describe it. Her words were ‘it was inappropriate’ and ‘like making out’.” The suspension notice is dated November 14, 1996.
The report adds that Katy was recently spotted by teachers “doing the Macarena dance” outside of their classrooms and had been cited twice for wearing “crop tops” with her midriff showing.
Perry captioned the Instagram Story post, “WHEN I WAS SUSPENDED IN 6TH GRADE FOR HUMPING A TREE AND I GUESS OTHER STUFF.”
LADY GAGA RUSHED HOME AFTER CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS TO BE WITH HER DYING HORSE – (01/15/2019)
After winning two Critics’ Choice Awards Sunday, Lady Gaga learned her beloved horse Arabella was dying.
Gaga shared the news in a heartbreaking post on social media, along with a photo of her riding the white horse for a 2016 Vanity Fair Italy shoot.
“I am so honored and blessed to have won both Best Song and Best Actress alongside Glenn Close this evening,” she wrote. “My heart is exploding with pride. But it saddens me to say that just after the show I learned that my dear angel of a horse, Arabella, is dying.”
Gaga said she rushed out to say her goodbyes to Arabella, skipping any post-awards show parties.
“She is and was a beautiful horse,” she continued. “Our souls and spirits were one. When she was in pain, so was I. I will never forget the moments we shared. Long hikes together, galloping through the canyons. Feeding her cookies. She will forever be a part of me. I am so very sad.”
She concluded with a message for Arabella: “I wish for your pain to end, and the gates of heaven to open for you. I love you.”
