Selena Gomez Breaks Down During Billboard Woman of the Year Awards
Selena Gomez was honored with the “Woman of the Year” Award at Billboard‘s Women in Music event, and now we can’t stop ugly crying…
Selena was presented with the “Woman of the Year” Sward yesterday by her BFF, Francia Raisa, who also happened to selflessly donate her kidney to Selena earlier this year.
While presenting the award to Selena, Francia said, “When I found out I was a match for Selena, I didn’t think twice about it. I was honored and if I was in the same situation she wouldn’t have thought twice about doing it for me. That’s just who she is.”
Despite Selena’s health struggles this year, which were a result of her ongoing battle with Lupus, she has somehow managed to stay on top of her career and release some KILLER collaborations with some talented and notable artists. But when she hit the stage to accept the award, Francia was the first person on her mind, even saying that when it comes down to the two of them, Francia is the one who truly deserves to be named “Woman of the Year.” Check out Selena’s full heartwarming speech below:
If you’re crying right now, don t worry — so was everyone else in the audience. Selena tearfully thanked those who stood by her during the trials and tribulations 2017 has brought her, saying, “I would like to thank my amazing team and my family because they stuck with me through some really hard times. I got to do a lot this year, even though I had a couple of other things to do,” clearly hinting at her life-threatening kidney transplant.
Selena has bravely made it clear since her diagnosis that she refuses to let her health troubles get her down and stop her from doing what she loves, which is why she’s certainly our “Woman of the Year”. Now if you’ll excuse us, we still have a few more ugly tears to cry…
