  • What's up?

  • It's Sussan Mourad here with Clevver News and on her cooking show, Selena Gomez managed

  • to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for over 20 organizations, all while putting

  • out literal fires in her kitchen.

  • In case you missed it, this past year while many of us were sitting on the couch, Selena

  • Gomez was writing new music, releasing her makeup line, and starring in her own new cooking

  • show.

  • Her cooking show Selena + Chef was such a success in its first season, that HBO Max

  • immediately picked it up for season 2.

  • As you all know by now, I'm not the best cook.

  • How are your knife skills these days?

  • Umm I know how to do this.

  • Selena terrifies me with the knives.”

  • And while Sel admittingly isn't the best chef, she said she's still trying to get

  • better with the help of some of the world's top chefs.

  • The new season just premiered and there are new episodes dropping every week through this

  • week.

  • But there was one moment in the show that has everyone talking.

  • Selena was cooking with Chef Kelis Rogers, yes you know, the singer of the iconic song

  • 'Milkshake' is now a top chef

  • And Selena literally lit her kitchen on fire just trying to saute some butter.

  • You've gotta see this

  • You're gonna turn that on low.

  • Ahhh oh my gosh.

  • Turn it off!

  • What is happening?

  • What happened?

  • It's off.”

  • Thankfully Kelis stepped in and told Selena

  • how to put the fire out amid panic from Selena's friends

  • Sel also stayed so calm, cool and collected, though at first, she did try to blow the big

  • fire out

  • What is going on?

  • Is there a fire extinguisher?

  • What just lit on fire?

  • The butter in the sauce pan.

  • You wanna cover it.” 

  • And now hopefully Selena will make sure her stovetop is actually on low, not high, when

  • she's cooking up butter.

  • TAKE NOTE EVERYONE, cook butter on LOW not HIGH!

  • Real talk, I probably would have had it on high too.

  • Fires aside, Selena's show has done some incredible work when it comes to raising money

  • for charity.

  • In each episode, the chef Selena works with gets to pick an organization they care about

  • to donate money to.

  • According to People Magazine, over the first two seasons, Sel raised $360,000 for 23 nonprofit

  • organizations.

  • Some of the charities that received the funds raised include No Kid Hungry, Smile Train,

  • Feeding America, NAACP, Postpartum Support International, and Feeding San Diego just

  • to name a few.

  • Let's note there were a ton more charities that also got funds

  • And fans of Selena's know that these donations are only a fraction of her current charity

  • work.

  • Last year she also launched her 'Rare Impact Fund' with the goal of raising $100 million

  • to go towards mental health

  • As if there weren't already enough reasons to stan Selena, we love how important giving

  • back to others is to her

  • And her HBO Max cooking show really is the gift that keeps on giving.

  • If you guys haven't watched yet, I highly suggest checking out the new season.

  • You can cook alongside Sel and whip up some impressive recipes!

  • Though, make sure your stove tops are on low if the chef says low.

  • I wouldn't want any fires starting in your homes

  • Three brand new episodes of Selena + Chef drop on Thursday, but there's plenty to

  • catch up on until then.
