Sel's Career Today
Selena is on a Stars Dance Tour today at Salt Lake City. Her dream has really taken off since the day she sat in the crowd watching her mom act and has followed in her footsteps. It took hard work for this girl who was never confident to take baby steps and get her way to the top to be who she is right now.
On June 10, 2011 was rushed to the hospital due to a severe headache and nausea. Because of her mysterious illness, she had to cancel time to be on "The Tonight Show" to discuss her upcoming movie, "Monte Carlo." She was later gone a number of tests and the doctors still couldn't find out what was wrong with her. This "mysterious illness" caused Selena to faint. This affected half of her schedule to be on talk shows and rehearsals for her new movie. Finally, in 2012, her sickness was discovered as high blood pressure and cured with antibiotics.
