Meanwhile, this was a big moment for Amy, who not just five weeks ago, was put in the hospital following a mysterious illness.
” I am going on day 4 in the hospital after developing a very serious condition called Rhabdomyolysis,” Amy wrote on her Instagram, alerting her fans what had been going on. “It basically can occur when you overwork a muscle group and the muscle begins to breakdown into your blood stream. It can severely damage kidneys pretty quickly and as most of you know I have a kidney transplant which was a big concern.”
But, after a handful of therapy sessions and the amazing medical attention she was getting — Amy looks so good! We’re so glad to see her back on her feet again!

“#History is officially out. This song is everything to me. And I am so proud of this video. Thank you @directorra and the whole crew for working so hard to bring this story to life. Thank you @whoisleo for being apart of this and making it so special. My @hollywoodrecords fam, I love you. And to you guys… thank you for allowing me to tell this story with strength, passion, and raw emotion. I hope you guys love it,” Olivia wrote on Instagram.
The 19-year-old singer recently opened up about their special bond.
“We both just gush about love all the time,” Olivia told People. “Truly, we just sit there and we watch chick flicks all day long.”
Jordan said, “Her boyfriend…he was nervous to meet me. Of course, at the beginning he was like ‘Why are you hanging out with this dude?’ Olivia’s like, ‘You need to understand how important he is’ and that kind of thing.”
“It is very important to have deep friendships of the opposite sex to learn so much about yourself and what you need as a human,” he added.
