Selena Gomez is back on the scene! The “It Ain’t Me” singer was spotted out and about in New York City on Friday, just one day after she revealed the shocking news that she’d undergone a kidney transplant. As Selena fans know, the singer was diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disease, in 2013. Due to the painful disease, Selena was forced to get the transplant. Amazingly, her best friend, actress Francia Raisa, was able to donate the kidney that saved Selena’s life, and now Selena is looking healthier than ever. Click through to see the pics!

Selena was candid about her surgery on Instagram, writing, “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.”
