Selena Gomez Honors Kidney Donor at 'Billboard Woman of the Year'

Selena Gomez Honors Kidney Donor at 'Billboard Woman of the Year'

As fans will likely recall, Gomez announced the news of her surgery to her fans and followers on Instagram in September and quickly thanked her friend for saving her life. "I cherish people who have really impacted my life", she said.

The stars have yet to comment on their rekindled romance, but their public display of affection came days after a source told Justin and Selena are keen to keep their blossoming love under wraps. In fact, she thanked other women for inspiring her and for inspiring all women in the moment of girl power: "How crucial it is that these voices that are being heard are being heard for the first time - it's so great and I'm so grateful for the older women who have lifted us up". "I'm grateful for that", she shared.

"I'm 25. I'm not 18, or 19, or 20. I'm good, I'm really good". "So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn't right".

"I want to live a life that's worth living", explains Selena, insisting that she's going to do what's best for her, no matter how it looks to the general public. "She's standing here and being honoured and I've seen her career continue to soar, it's awesome", she told Billboard Online.

In conclusion, I think that was quite the pick for woman of the year. "I mean, I grew up with Demi [Lovato]". It's just my life. It comes back to the idea of me remaining full.

The "Wolves" singer broke down in tears acknowledging her kidney donor, Francia Rasia as she accepted her Billboard Woman of the Year award on Thursday. I think all of you lovely folks should just go ahead and check out what Gomez chose to wear to accept quite the honor.

"Just seeing my friend get sick, and more sick, and more sick was hard but at the same time so positive for our friendship", she added.
