Selena Gomez blames junk food habit for illness

Pop star Selena Gomez says she’s all better after being treated for food poisoning and exhaustion after becoming ill following her appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on June 9.

"I’m good now, thank you. I’m so much better. I do eat. The problem is I don’t eat right. I love everything that’s possibly not good for me."

Junk food is not synonymous with food poisoning.

Jennifer Hudson hospitalized for food poisoning; Selena Gomez too?

TMZ reports that songstress Jennifer Hudson was rushed to a New York hospital this morning after suffering from a bad case of food poisoning.

Hudson’s rep said, "After performing on ‘Good Morning America’ earlier today, Jennifer Hudson went to the hospital due to severe abdominal pains. She was treated for food poisoning and released.”

Meanwhile, USA Today reports Selena Gomez looked just fine as she chatted with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show last night, but the singer was rushed to the hospital after the appearance, with symptoms that included nausea and a headache.

Appearing on gabfests can apparently be a health hazard.
