It’s been just over a year since Selena Gomez underwent a kidney transplant.
In the 13 months since the life-saving operation, the singer has reassessed the way she lives her life, she’s revealed in a new interview.
Appearing on Good Morning America to promote Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, a cartoon film in which she voices the character Mavis, the 25-year-old said:
“Honestly, I’ve just kind of stepped back a bit. I’m enjoying my life. I don’t really think about anything that causes me stress anymore, which is really nice.”
She also revealed she made the decision to move, although didn’t say where to.
“I don’t even live in Los Angeles anymore. I don’t pay attention to trying to get people to like me as much.”
In September last year, Selena revealed her friend Francia Raisa gave her a kidney.
“I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus,” she wrote.
“It was what I needed to do for my overall health. 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.”
Selena has been open about her battle with Lupus. In 2016 she called off her world tour to seek treatment for the anxiety and depression she has battled on and off, another side effect of Lupus. In 2014, she had chemotherapy to treat it.
