"To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life", Gomez told the audience.
Breaking down in tears, the singer apologised before continuing with her speech, saying: "I feel incredibly lucky". And for that alone she deserves another award.
Selena Gomez was awarded "Woman of the Year" at the Billboard Women in Music 2017, capping off an eventful year for the 25-year-old actress and musician. We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me, ' she confessed.
Selena Gomez has insisted she is still "best friends" with her ex-boyfriend The Weeknd. After all, if her kidney transplant hadn't happened, she may not be here to speak of her scar in the first place.
In over the past month, the public has seen a lot of Selena Gomez's romantic life, from her split from The Weekend to her rekindled bond with Justin Bieber. "I want people to know I respect the platform that I have so deeply". Specifically this year, I would like to thank my incredible team and my family because they stuck with me through some really hard times. "That was the day I came home and she volunteered, she did it".
The star, who has had a well-documented battle with Lipus, previously said: 'It was really kind of life or death.
"I've never felt more proud to be a woman in this industry than I do today and that's because I feel actually comfortable with every single woman that has encouraged me", she said. She continued, "Thank you for all of you who inspired so many girls who feel they don't have a voice".
She said, "I don't know how I'll repay it, maybe I'll make an epic album for you guys and everyone else".
