Selena Gomez Tearfully Dedicated Her Billboard Award to Kidney Donor Francia Raisa

Selena Gomez at the Billboard Women in Music event

The "Wolves" crooner was asked about her decision to sign onto the project, but basically said nothing with her response.

"I remember looking at myself in the mirror completely naked and thinking about all the things that I used to bitch about and just asking, 'Why?' I had someone in my life for a very long time who pointed out all the things that I didn't feel great about with myself", Gomez said.

Gomez, who was spotted again with the Biebs on the heels of her breakup with the "Starboy" crooner, explained her reunion with Bieber this way: "I cherish people who have really impacted my life". "Seeing all these women come up here tonight and say these handsome speeches with their awards is so inspiring", she told the crowd, then paying tribute to those who have helped her get to that point. I'm good, I'm really good. Does she feel like it is a battle scar?

While accepting Billboard's 2017 Woman of the Year award, she struggled to hold back her emotions as she paid tribute to Raisa in her opening remarks, reports Contactmusic. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. I was just glad I was able to do.

The Bad Liar hitmaker, who was diagnosed with Lupus several years ago, went on: "I knew that I wanted to be a part of something great and I wanted people to feel great, because I love people". In acting and in film, you're around a much more stable community.
