Selena Gomez Opens Up About Her Kidney Transplant Scar

https://instagram.com/p/CFhtu__j9zy

When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through...and I’m proud of that. T - Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that...all bodies are beautiful.


Selena had complications after her kidney transplant. "They had to take her into emergency surgery and get a vein from her leg and build a new artery to keep my kidney in place," Francia Raísa said back in 2018.

HBO Max orders "Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin" reboot



Earlier this month, it was reported that Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is developing a Pretty Little Liars reboot, HBO Max announced today that they have picked up the reboot titled "Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin" straight to series.

Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago...as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-RAGE, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.

Original series creator I. Marlene King is not involved in the project.

TikTok influencer ignites huge feud between Philippines and Korea, starting the #CancelKorea move



Bella Poarch, a Filipino TikTok celebrity with 27 million followers, uploaded a dance video on the platform, in said video, a tattoo of the rising sun can be seen on her forearm, immediately prompting Korean users to unleash a barrage of hate towards her, with many of Bella’s countrymen defending her. The incident escalated in such manner that racist remarks were hurled.

The affair has been raging on for the past days with no apparent signs of diminishing, causing users from the Philippines to start the hashtag of #CancelKorea in retaliation for the attacks made by Korean internauts against the Philippines, sparking discussions among people supporting either side.

The rising sun is a symbol from feudal Japan, regarded as extremely offensive in South Korea and China for representing Japanese imperialism.

Ryan Gosling to Play A Stuntman in New Film



Universal has won a heated auction for an Untitled Stuntman Drama starring Ryan Gosling and directed by Atomic Blonde's David Leitch (also a former stuntman) off a script by Hobbs & Shaw writer Drew Pearce.
