VANESSA CARLTON DISSES CHRIS BROWN FOR POSTING HER SONG ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY – (03/09/2018)

Vanessa Carlton denounced Chris Brown after he attempted to celebrate her record, “A Thousand Miles” on Instagram. The singer uploaded a post, showing his love for the ’01 record and said, “LIT FOREVER.” Shortly after, Carlton denounced Brown, referring to his ’09 assault on Rihanna. She shared a post of her own, saying, “Today Chris Brown posted my video. I am now being repeatedly tagged to his account. Being that today is International Women’s Day I feel compelled to draw a line. I support survivors not perpetrators of domestic violence. I do not want to be associated with an artist that has assaulted women on a day like today.” 

Brown shared Carlton’s post on his page and said, “I posted a song that was and still is a great song and the artist felt she was doing her duty as a WOMAN to continue to spread this kind of hatred today. I won’t keep it up long. I just hope she knows she is loved and her song is great.” 

  • He then deleted the post of Carlton’s song and instead, shared a clip from White Chicks, which features her single. He wrote alongside the post, “I LOVE THIS SONG.” 

FRANCIA RAISA REVEALS SELENA GOMEZ NEARLY DIED FROM KIDNEY SURGERY COMPLICATIONS – (03/09/2018)

Francia Raisa is opening up more about her decision to donate her kidney to help save Selena Gomez’s life.

During a recent interview, the 29-year-old grown-ish star opened up about her difficult recovery while also sharing that the 25-year-old singer/actress nearly died from complications.

“Recovery was hard,” Francia told W Magazine. “I didn’t want to eat, I didn’t want to drink anything. Selena did have a complication, too.”

“A few hours after our surgery, I woke up and had a text from her that said, ‘I’m really scared,’” Francia shared. “My kidney was very active, and when she turned, she broke an artery. They had to take her into emergency surgery and get a vein from her leg and build a new artery to keep my kidney in place…She could have died.”

Back in September, Selena revealed that she received a kidney from Francia back in June after discovering her kidneys were failing from her battle with Lupus.
