Billboard Named Selena Gomez Woman Of The Year And Here Are A Couple Things They Didn’t Include In Their Reasons Why

Selena Gomez is Billboard’s Woman of the Year and some people are unsure about her designation to the title. Some followers have expressed their desire to have seen a different star take the title and they’re already taking to social media to let the music media giant know. Here’s a rundown of why Billboard decided to honor Gomez and what fans truly think of Gomez’s new title.

Billboard points to Gomez’s feature across the cover of Vogue as part of the reason why she was appointed to the title.

The March issue features Gomez just months after her sudden break from music to manage her lupus symptoms. It was a big feat for the singer considering the health issues she was tackling at the time. In the feature story, the singer also opened up about the dark feelings she experienced during her Revival tour and how they pushed her to check herself into treatment.

Another high point of Gomez in 2017, as noted by Billboard, was the release of her show “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix.

A peek at a passion project I've been working on with @Netflix. @13ReasonsWhy arrives 3/31.

The show had a rocky start and some people accused Netflix and Gomez, who produced the show, of putting forth a show that glorified suicide. Despite the initial pushback, “13 Reasons Why” became a successful show for the streaming platform and started a discussion about the impact of suicide and the importance of mental health.

Billboard also pointed out the awareness she brought to the importance of organ donation and lupus.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, 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. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

For the most part, the autoimmune disease is largely misunderstood by those in and outside of the medical community. Gomez brought awareness of the complexities to international headlines this September when she opened up to the public about a kidney transplant as a result of complications with the disease.

Still, despite her accomplishments some Twitter users argue that artists like Ariana Grande deserve the title of Woman of the Year over Gomez.

The heartbreaking disaster that took place in Manchester at Grande’s concert was a major moment in 2017. The world came together in grief and hope to help the victims and the families of those killed and many were impressed by Grande’s efforts to unite fans with a benefit concert devoted to the victims of the attack.

But the moments listed by Billboard aren’t the only accomplishments of Gomez’s from this year. She also dove into the political conversation about DACA.

On Sept. 5, the Trump administration announced that they would begin the process of dismantling Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) which would take nearly 800,000 immigrants out of the workforce and school. The decision could potentially put these people who have been in the country, many since childhood, at risk of deportation to a completely foreign country. Gomez used her platform to address the impact of reversing DACA various times on social media and highlighted how its overturn would impact hundreds of thousands of people.

What’s more, she lent her voice and presence to raise money for victims of many of this year’s natural disasters.

Join all of us right now!!! @telemundo @univision and on @nbc -we are one

After natural disasters such as the one currently plaguing Puerto Rico, Gomez stepped up to join “One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief” this past October. The singer took calls from fans and worked to raise donations for those impacted by the disasters. Her efforts, alongside ones from numerous of others, helped raise millions of dollars for those affected.

And she also gave a well-received performance at the American Music Awards, just months after her kidney transplant.

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.

In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”
