Jennifer Lopez está en su mejor momento y así lo demuestra

0

¡Jennifer Lopez no cambiaría su vida actual por nada!

La cantante de 48 años es la estrella de la portada de HOLA! USA en su edición de octubre/noviembre y le dio a la revista un vistazo a su casa en los Hamptons, a la cual llama la «casa de sus sueños». 

«Esta casa simboliza mucho para mí», le dijo a la revista. «Por primera vez en mi vida estoy en un muy buen momento». 

Parece que todos los aspectos en la vida de la cantante de Ni Tú Ni Yo se alinearon. Es mamá de sus adorables mellizos de nueve años Max y Emme, tiene una exitosa residencia en Las Vegas, protagoniza populares shows como Shades of Blue y World of Dance, prepara un nuevo disco, y su relación con Alex Rodríguez es la que todos quisiéramos tener. 

JLo ha estado ocupada trabajando en su nuevo disco en español, Por Primera Vez. 

«Es sobre cómo siempre estamos reinventándonos de algún modo, viviendo las cosas por primera vez, sin importar lo viejo que estés. Siempre hay nuevos comienzos», explicó sobre el significado detrás del título. 

La reinvención constante es crucial para los artistas, pero JLo cree que luchar por ser cada vez mejor es igual de importante. 

«Ya sea si estoy cantando o actuando o lo que sea, siempre me pregunto, ‘¿Lo hice mejor que la última vez? ¿Hubo crecimiento? ¿Me estoy moviendo hacia adelante?'», explicó. «Nadie quiere hacer lo mismo una y otra vez, y quedarse estancado».

Uno podría decir que Por Primera Vez es parte de la reinvención de Lopez. Ella dice que habrá un par de canciones lentas, parecidas a su sencillo Mírate, pero promete que también será un disco eléctrico. 

«Una de las cosas que amo más es que tenga música feliz», dice. «Se siente feliz y divertido, aunque sí, tiene tres o cuatro baladas». 

Toda esta música «feliz» tendrá invitados conocidos como Nicky JamWisin, y Gente de Zona. Ella no tiene miedo de innovar y de colaborar con nombres nuevos. 

«Siempre quiero trabajar con artistas nuevos, hacer nuevas cosas, trabajar con quien tenga el sonido de ahora», dice. «Porque eso es emocionante para mí como artista, músico, cantante».

A pesar de que admite que está más cómoda en inglés, JLo dice que ama cantar en español. 

«Hay algo sobre eso que simplemente es más romántico y apasionado», admite. «Es una parte tan esencial de quién soy. Siento que canto mejor en español». 

JLo estrenó su primera canción en español, Amar es Para Siempre, 18 años atrás. Desde entonces ha crecido como artista, cantante y actriz. Pero, para la superestrella, hacer las paces con sus imperfecciones fue esencial para su crecimiento. 

«Quiero mejorar, por eso estoy bien con todo eso», explica. «Me acepto totalmente con todas esas cosas, no estoy aquí para ser perfecta, no estoy aquí sino para dar lo mejor de mí». 

Finalmente, el consejo de JLo es dejar ir el pasado. 

«Lo que es para ti, es para ti, todo lo demás tienes que dejarlo ir», dice. «Aprende de eso y no luches contra eso».

Kidney Transplant: 5 Things About The Procedure Selena Gomez Had Done This Summer

0

Selena Gomez shocked everyone by revealing she had a secret kidney transplant due to complications from Lupus. A transplant is a major procedure, so learn about the surgery that may have just saved Selena’s life.

1. A kidney transplant is surgery that places a healthy kidney into a person’s body. The term “kidney transplant” is pretty self-explanatory. When someone – in this case, Selena Gomez, 25 – needs a new kidney, doctors take a healthy organ from a donor – in this case, Selena’s friend Francia Raisa, 29 – and use it to replace one of the failing organs. Selena announced that over the summer, she had undergone the procedure after her The Secret Life of the American Teenager co-star volunteered to donate an organ to the “Bad Liar” singer.

2. The surgery is pretty straightforward. Mostly, transplanted kidneys are attached in the lower abdomen, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The surgeon connects the artery and vein from the donor kidney to an artery and a vein in the patient’s body, so blood flows through this new organ. The doctor also attaches the ureter from the donor kidney to the patient’s bladder, so that urine can also flow through the new kidney. The surgery usually takes 3 or 4 hours.

3. Two people go under the knife at the same time. When Selena announced that she underwent the procedure, she did so by sharing a picture of her and Francia both in hospital gowns while lying in side-by-side beds. That’s because the surgeons operate on two people at once. One doctor performs the nephrectomy – the removal of the healthy kidney from the donor – while another transplants the organ in the patient’s body. In some medical centers, the same surgeon performs both operations.

4. A kidney transplant is only possible due to a donor. Selena was lucky in that she found a willing and eligible donor.  A donor’s blood type must be compatible with the patient, and both Selena and Francia had to be tested to see if their human leukocyte antigens matched up. These antigens help a person’s immune system tell the difference between their body and foreign substances. A critical mismatch means that Selena’s immune system would immediate attack Francia’s kidney, thinking it was an invading disease.

People needing a kidney but who don’t have a donor are put in a waiting list, which could have them waiting from a few months to several years. Kidneys don’t have to come from living people, as surgeons can take healthy organs from people who passed away. Consider becoming an organ donor to help save a life!

5. Selena needed the surgery due to lupus nephritis. So, every day, a person’s kidneys filter about 120 to 150 quarters of blood to produce about 1 to 2 quarters of urine. The kidney removes all the harmful wastes and extra salt from your body. While many things can cause Chronic Kidney disease – aka the gradual loss of kidney function – Selena needed the new organ because of her Lupus. A version of the disease, called lupus nephritis, causes inflammation of the small blood vessels that filter wastes in the kidneys, according to the National Kidney Foundation. Basically, Sel’s Lupus made her immune system attack her kidneys, and she needed a new organ in order to survive.

Love In The (New) Nuclear Age In Lana Del Rey’s “White Mustang” Video

0

“White Mustang” is perhaps the quintessentially Lana Del Rey cut on Lust For Life. A moody anthem about a groupie falling in and out of love with a musician, the song explores some of the hitmaker’s favorite themes (obsession, fame and despair) through a very modern lens. The same can be said of the video, which dropped this morning. The striking visual, which documents LDR’s affair with a long-haired lover, begins with shadowy embrace in a Hollywood Hills mansion, before taking to the streets of Los Angeles.

We then see how they came together — all it took was a cheeky kiss — and moments from their courtship. The video turns on its head, however, when a nuclear warhead explodes overhead. It’s certainly an issue that weighs heavily on Lana’s mind. “I know that we’re living in a New Age with new nuclear abilities,” she tweeted last week. “I hope each country can find a way to communicate before things escalate.” Leave it to the “Love” diva to tackle a serious world issue in the most artistic and depressingly romantic way possible. Watch up top.

Russell Brand Says He’s ‘Open for Reconciliation’ With Ex-Wife Katy Perry

0

Katy Perry and Russell Brand, who wed in 2010 and went through a very public divorce two years later, have had a tumultuous relationship over the years. Now, five years since their official divorce, Brand tells Grazia that he is ready for reconciliation with his ex-wife.

“It was a very important and lovely time in my life,» Brand tells the Italian lifestyle magazine. «I don’t regret being married to Katy at all. I have very positive feelings about that whole experience and Katy is an extraordinary woman. I’m willing and open for reconciliation, any kind. Because if we can’t overcome our relatively trivial personal disputes in this world, what hope is there for us?”

Brand also debunks rumors later in the interview, revealing that he still has the matching Sanskrit tattoo that both he and Perry got together, despite hearsay he had gotten it removed. «Oh of course I still have it,» he says.

This isn’t the first time that Brand has spoken kindly about Perry since their divorce. In an interview with UTKV in April, the comedian revealed that he «still feel[s] very warm towards her.»

While we still have to hear Perry’s side (it takes two to tango), it is safe to say that Brand has used time to heal his wounds.
