Selena Gomez tearfully thanks friend who saved her life

The reason for her emotion was because of who had handed her the award: her best friend, actor Francia Raisa, who had given her a kidney earlier this year to aid Gomez in her battle against Lupus.

Speaking about Raisa, Gomez said: "I think Francia should be getting this award". "I think for me what's been great is that I've been able to live the life that I've wanted for myself".

Gomez has been abundantly introspective, which was clear from the accompanying interview she did for the December 9 issue of Billboard.

Here are a few more things we learned about the former Disney Channel star.

She explained, "I've cried". She saved my life... "So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn't right".

"I mean I don't think anybody truly, actually cares".

The "Bad Liar" singer said that she's altered and edited herself her whole life for the sake of others. The 25-year-old faced serious (and understandable) backlash, because the 82-year-old was accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was just seven years old. It's a really attractive thing and I have to remind myself of that. "But I really, really felt that that's what helped me feel satisfied with where I am". "I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon, my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you". "It was really hard in the beginning", she admitted.

Raisa, who attended the show in Los Angeles as Gomez's date, spoke with Billboard backstage about donating her kidney to her friend.

She auditioned for Woody Allen's 2018 comedy "A Rainy Day in New York" five times. And it was a great experience for me.
