The teen pop queen has over 70 million followers on Instagram, and it’s safe to say that she knows how to turn social media into an art form. Her pictures range from selfies to adorable family moments.
Aside from her musical career, Gomez has also been a big advocate for mental health awareness and charity work. She has partnered with numerous programs and brands for various campaigns.
it’s through her massive reach on social media that she is able to gain new Instagram followers on a daily basis. No matter what she posts, it just keeps getting more likes and shares.
1. Her new blonde hair
In April, Selena Gomez stunned fans by going platinum blonde for a short period of time. Having been a brunette for most of her career, she surprised everyone with her unexpected switch up.
She posted a mirror selfie on her makeup brand Rare Beauty’s Instagram page, revealing that she had dyed her hair to an icy, platinum hue. It was a dramatic change that had many praising her in the comments section.
The singer also chopped her locks a little bit shorter, with them now falling just past her shoulders. She credited Orlando Pita with the makeover and wore a pair of pastel nails to complement her new look.
She’s not the first celebrity to surprise her fans with a dramatic hair transformation, as Billie Eilish went blonde earlier this year. The blonde ‘do wasn’t as long-lived as the one Gomez did in 2017, so it’s no surprise that she’s back to her signature dark brown locks.
2. Her kidney transplant surgery
The ‘Fetish’ singer recently revealed that she had a kidney transplant in September 2017. Her best friend and donor, Francia Raisa (the star of ‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager’), gave her the gift of life.
Kidney transplants are life-saving surgeries for both the patient and the donor. But it can be a long and difficult process to find someone willing to donate their organ.
It’s especially tough for people with lupus, an autoimmune disease that turns the body’s immune system against itself. Gomez’s illness caused her kidneys to fail, resulting in her needing a kidney transplant.
Her publicist confirmed that she had the operation. She also shared a touching picture of herself in the hospital alongside Raisa, who was her kidney donor.
Raisa has since opened up about her generous act, sharing that the scar she’s now wearing is “doesn’t define me.” She hoped her story would help others who are in need of a kidney.
3. Her Coach photoshoot pics
Selena Gomez is one of the most followed people on Instagram, a lupus survivor and a fashion designer. She’s recently partnered with Coach for an exciting lifestyle collection that will launch this fall, and we can’t wait to see her debut look.
On a recent photoshoot for her new swimsuit line, La’Mariette, Gomez looked drop-dead gorgeous in all the pics. She wore a range of bikinis and costumes to promote the body positive collection, which is all about inclusivity and celebrating the fact that everyone’s body is beautiful.
In a recent Instagram post, Gomez shared her inspirational story with fans, and revealed that she recently underwent a kidney transplant surgery to help deal with the complications of lupus. She was lucky enough to get an organ donor in her friend Francia Raisa, and she showed off her scar from the first procedure.
4. Her adorable family moments
Selena Gomez is an actress, a producer, and a worldwide superstar, but she’s also a big sister to two adorable half-sisters: Gracie Elliot Teefey, 4, and Victoria “Tori” Gomez, 3. They make cameos every now and then on her mega-followed social media platforms, and we totally love seeing them together.
Despite her busy schedule, Gomez always finds time to spend with her family. In her spare time, she loves driving home to Texas to visit her grandparents and cousins and to take her young children, Gracie and Victoria, on tour with her.
The 30-year-old singer is not only a proud mom, but she also has an incredibly supportive family. In her latest TikTok video, she shares an empowering message with her youngest daughter Gracie about staying strong and never giving up no matter what the odds.
It’s no secret that Gomez has battled a number of severe health issues over the years, including lupus, which left her in bed for prolonged periods of time. But she hasn’t let the hardships stop her from pursuing her dreams and sharing her joy with the world.
