Selena was spotted arriving at a Lupus Gala in New York, and looked gorgeous in a yellow dress underneath a sherpa lined denim jacket. As her fans know, the singer suffers from the autoimmune disease, and was diagnosed several years ago. She had a life-saving kidney transplant earlier this year to combat the illness.

While at the Gala, Selena spoke out about her Lupus, which now has just a 3 to 5 percent chance of returning, according to her. "I'd like to see the day when all young women can realize their dreams of life without a Lupus," she said.

"This is why I am committed to the Lupus Research Alliance. So that none of us are alone, especially the young women that I have grown up with and heard many, many stories. I just want to say thank you and I hope we can do something for all of the younger people who need to know what this means," she continued.

After finding out about her transplant, Justin Bieber re-entered her life, and they have been inseparable lately. But their rekindled romance is rumored to have led to her split from The Weeknd after a 10-month long relationship.
