The singer says the public's reaction to her health news has been "overwhelming"
Selena Gomez is sharing her perspective in the wake of her lupus revelation.
Gomez first opened up about undergoing chemotherapy in an interview Billboard published in October, explaining that treatment kept her from the limelight.
“I waited for the right time to talk about it because I am in a great place and I’m very healthy,” she explains. “I’m not trying to be loud about it: it was time to use my platform to help.”
All things considered, Gomez gives her 2015 a positive rating.
“A good 8,” she says. “A lot of ups and downs, but they helped shape who I am.”
