Selena Gomez So Desperate To Stay In The Spotlight That She Steals Kidney From Her Best Friend

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez, mobbed by fans, leaving her hospital room wearing a very elegant Dior hospital gown.

In a scene reminiscent of Tom Cruise’s “Minority Report,” (I think it was that one. The scene where he is blind and moving around that apartment holding onto strings that lead him to the fridge but he grabs the spoiled milk instead of the fresh milk. That one. That movie. Is that “Minority Report?” Or is it “Vanilla Sky?” No, it couldn’t be “Vanilla Sky.” I never watched “Vanilla Sky.” Which is weird, because I usually watch all of Cameron Crowe’s movies. I even enjoyed “Singles.” But I never watched “Vanilla Sky.”) pop princess and former would-be wizard Selena Gomez had a kidney transplant recently, with the help of her best friend, Francia Raisa. (I thought Demi Lovato was her best friend. Hmmmm. I must be getting old. I can’t keep track anymore). 

Gomez suffers from lupus, and needed a kidney. The operation was performed earlier this summer.

Selena Gomez, post kidney surgery, pushes through the throngs of admiring fans. Paparazzi we surprised by the backless Dior hospital gown which put Selena’s surgery scar in plain view.

(Dammit, this is really going to bug me. I guess I ought to go and stream “Minority Report” and confirm if that’s the thing I’m thinking of. But it’s so depressing that his kid gets killed. I can’t watch movies like that anymore. I still haven’t watched “Mystic River” or “Gone Baby Gone.” I can’t do it. And I like Casey Affleck’s films. I say his films, because he clearly is a jerk. From what I’ve read. He was okay in “The Coward that Shot Jesse James” or whatever the heck it was called. That was a long movie, though. And as usual, Garret Dillahunt was good in that movie. He’s good in every movie he’s in. I really enjoyed him in “No Country for Old Men.” That was good. Incidentally, I asked around the office who would give me a kidney if I needed it, and suddenly everybody had a meeting to go to, even the interns. Except one intern, Matt. He said he’d give me a kidney. But that kid drinks Mountain Dew and Red Bulls non-stop. Like literally. Thanks, but no thanks, Matt.) 

But we wish Selena and her bestie, whoever she is, a speedy recovery.

‘80s Icon Tami Stronach Does Jack And The Beanstalk Musical

Tami Stronach

Tami Stronach, has spent her time in dance, choreogrphy, and theater and is now starting something new: a children’s music album and touring live show inspired by the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk.

The Childlike Empress from The NeverEnding Story is back! Tami Stronach is putting together a new album and show for families and children with the album set to launch next month, and the show set to kick off in New York on February 4th.

Thirty years ago, we fell in love with her character The Childlike Empress when she beckoned Bastian to call her name. Now, the star of the 80s hit is back – ready to invade both the film and music world with her new family label and a Luck Dragon-sized load of exciting new projects.

Directed by Wolfgang Peterson, The NeverEnding Story was a West-German produced English-language film that, at the time, was the most expensive film produced outside the United States or the Soviet Union.

The NeverEnding Story, which won several awards over 1984 and 1985, was a global hit, snaring $100 million worldwide against a production budget of $27 million.

The movie, which catapulted Stronach to stardom, has been a huge inspiration in pop culture and is just as popular today as it was when it was first released.

After a couple of decades of making dance and theater in NYC, Tami has now turned her attention to laying the foundation for a content shop that makes family-friendly work – not unlike The NeverEnding Story. The brand is Called Paper Canoe Company, which she founded with husband, Greg.

In February, Tami releases a new album, Beanstalk Jack, a folk-rock opera based on Jack and the Beanstalk.

Beanstalk Jack is a 50 minute folk-rock concept album that the whole family can enjoy. It tells the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk with an Americana sound, and a girl meets boy twist. In it, young Jack goes up the Beanstalk with his six-string to find his fortune. In the big world at the top of the Beanstalk, Jack steals the heart of a giant’s daughter, Harmony, a bright star just waiting for the right band to come along.

Tami made one album Faerie Queen that nostalgia buffs will remember was a sleeper hit in the ‘80s. This new project is the first in a series of collaborations with a notable crew of indie folk-rock artists in Williamsburg. In the coming months she’ll be choreographing and performing in videos for the album and doing promo concerts in preparation for launching a full live theatrical experience later in the year. The performance will be built to tour nationally and internationally in theatrical concert venues with video projections, puppets, and Tami performing the role of Harmony, the Giant’s rock star daughter.

On February 4the, you’ll also be able to see a live theatre version of Beanstalk Jack in New York.
