Selena Gomez's grandfather, Ricardo Gomez, has opened up about the 21-year-old pop star's struggles in a candid new interview with RadarOnline.com. He tells the website that Selena is in treatment for lupus -- a potentially life-threatening disease in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues and organs. While she was allegedly diagnosed several years ago, Ricardo says that her condition has been exacerbated by her grueling work schedule and rollercoaster relationship with Justin Bieber. "What worries us is that she doesn't know how to say no," he says. "She won't take time for herself to relax, to eat well."

Seduik, who is in custody with a bail set at $20,000, has previously assaulted celebrities including America Ferrera, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, and Will Smith.
People's country edition has named Luke Bryan as 2014's sexiest country hunk. In a candid interview accompanying the honor, Bryan discusses his bad habits and the things he finds sexy in a woman, which are: "confidence, the ability to wing it and the ability to get fancied up and pretty." The 37-year-old superstar also said that when he needs a good laugh, he looks to his two sons. Other country hunks who made People's list include: Hunter Hayes, Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge, Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line.
Former Teen Mom Farrah Abraham is celebrating her 23rd birthday at New York City hotspot Pacha on Saturday, and she’s telling the world about it via a super-obnoxious birthday invite, featuring a busty picture of herself (of course). Rolling Stone got their hands on the official invite and has compiled a list of the seven most amazing -- or ridiculous -- things about the invite:
The fact that, by her own admission, this is only the "23rd Sexiest Birthday Bash Ever."
The sponsors, which include 16 Handles, Goody's Popcorn, Monster Energy, and "Sutra Sparkling Liqueur" -- much better than last year's birthday, which was brought to you by Shame and Regret.
We're not sure what a "Sneak Peak" is, but we're bringing our mountain-climbing gear just in case.
Tickets are $25, which you could use to buy books for school children. Or, you could just send them Farrah's erotic E-Book trilogy.
Topco Sales, "a leading global manufacturer for the adult novelty industry," is also sponsoring. If Farrah had this much adult supervision as a child, none of this would have ever happened.
The event is 21+, which means Farrah's daughter Sophia will probably be left at coat check. Again.
Much like the birthday girl herself, formal attire is not required to gain entrance.
