Selena Gomez Has Revealed That She Has Named Her New Kidney “Fred Armisen” It’s Portlandia All The Way!

Selena Gomez Named Her New Kidney After Fred Armisen

The 2017 kidney transplant recipient from Only Murders in the Building has said that she has taken to calling her new kidney “Fred,” after the late, great Saturday Night Live cast member.

Gomez told Rolling Stone, “I named it after Fred Armisen because I love Portlandia,” referring to the sketch comedy series created by Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. I’ve never met him, but I kind of hope he does find out just so he can say, “That’s weird.”

EW has attempted to contact Armisen’s representatives for comment on the tribute but has not yet heard back.

The “Lose You to Love Me” singer announced just two years after disclosing her lupus diagnosis in 2015 that she had undergone a kidney transplant due to complications from the disease.

The road to recovery was not smooth either. One of Gomez’s arteries was damaged when the donated kidney turned on itself after the operation. The kidney had been donated by actress Francia Rasa. The actress subsequently had a six-hour operation to fix the terrifying problem.

“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,” Rasa told W Magazine about the medical scare in 2018. She very nearly lost her life.

Gomez, who has been transparent for years about her struggles with mental and physical health, said that a donated kidney has a 30-year lifespan on average. To which she responded, “Which is fine,” in an interview with Rolling Stone. To put it bluntly, “Peace out” could be my response.

The Wondermind co-founder, whose struggles with mental illness will be explored in the upcoming documentary My Mind & Me, is aware, however, that the challenges she has overcome have only made her more resilient.

Her mantra was, “There’s a reason I’m here,” which she repeated often. “I don’t know how else I’d be here, simply based on the medical staff and balances in my head and conversations I’d had with myself that was really dark,” she said. “I know it sounds really cheesy when I say it sometimes, but I truly don’t know how else I’d be here.”

For Her New Organ, Selena Gomez Chose Fred Armisen

The singer Selena Gomez has overcome adversity. This is evident from the open and frank discussion of her ongoing mental and physical health battles that she has in the cover story of Rolling Stone.

Her hardships, however, have inspired her to use her voice for the greater good. Interviewing journalist Alex Morris, she discussed her mixed emotions regarding being a cause’s “face,” tactics for avoiding manufactured drama, and the near-death experience that was the production of her new documentary My Mind and Me.

The documentary Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me, which premieres on Apple TV+ on November 4, does not sugar coat the severity of the singer’s mental illness. She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder this year (2019).

Alek Keshishian had unfettered access to Gomez during the breakdown that ended her 2016 Revival tour and again leading up to the pandemic, and he wasn’t always sure he should continue filming — but Gomez insisted he does so.

The finished film is so emotionally taxing that she considered keeping it under wraps. Gomez explains that she feels she must “sacrifice” herself a little in order to serve a “greater purpose” because of her high profile. I don’t mean to sound overly dramatic, but I seriously considered not publishing this. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure I could pull it off a couple of weeks ago.

She Wishes Everyone Would Talk About Their Problems As Freely As She Does

Gomez probes Morris for her candid thoughts on My Mind and Me, and the two eventually talk about Morris’s struggles with worsening panic attacks. The fact that the film touched her so deeply has inspired Gomez to say that very thing to potential viewers.

She Wishes Everyone Would Talk About Their Problems As Freely As She Does

She tells her, “That is the most wonderful present you could have given me today.” If you could just say that you knew how they felt, it would mean so much. Honestly, nothing else would satisfy me.

The people I know who have experienced those emotions often feel helpless when faced with them. That’s something I’d like to see as the norm, you know?

Soon She May Begin Work On A New Album, But Before Then She Plans To “Disappear” In New York

To follow up on 2020’s Rare, Gomez has already written 24 songs for a new album that she may begin recording as early as 2022. However, she plans to escape to New York, a city she frequently visits, very soon. “Stop saying you don’t like L.A.,” people have told her, she says. But if I’m being completely forthright, my New York schedule is the absolute best. That’s where I keep all my stuff, where I work out, and where I get my coffee. The city, its people, and its vibrant culture serve as a source of motivation for me as I get to explore it on foot.

She enjoys the mud and filth of a New York winter. To be among so many Jewish grandmothers is a joy for me. There’s nothing better than snuggling up with a book or a good show in front of the fire in the comfort of your own home. Further, Gomez says, “It’s necessary to just vanish every once in a while.”

Last Words

After learning that she needed a kidney transplant due to lupus, Selena Gomez met actress and friend Francia Raisa in the summer of 2017. Gomez has recently revealed that her new kidney is named “Fred,” after the actor Fred Armisen, as is customary for transplanted organs.
