In her emotional speech, Selena went on to say how she deeply respects the platform she's been given, and thanked all the older women who inspire the younger generation to use their voices.

Breaking down in tears, the "Wolves" singer said, "I think Francia should be getting this award. Honestly, I couldn't be more grateful for the position I've been given in my career from seven to 14 to now", she said in her speech. "I feel incredibly lucky". "I'm not really ashamed", she said.

Selena - who received an organ from her friend Francia Raisa over the summer comments - previously praised her transplant as a "beautiful thing", and believes her operation has "made her" who she is now.

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.

The star confirmed she'd undergone kidney surgery back in mid-September, with the singer taking to Instagram to admit "there aren't enough words to describe how I can possibly thank my lovely friend", along with a photo of the pair holding hands in separate hospital beds.

The controversy surrounding Allen's personal life has continually led to public criticism for those actors and actresses who work on his films, with Gomez the latest to be quizzed on whether she considered the downsides before signing on to Rainy Day in NY. "She [saved my life]", Gomez said.

"I mean I don't think anybody truly, actually cares". But she has since promised to make a comeback with an "epic album".

News flash, Selena Gomez: people 100%, absolutely, positively, without a doubt care that you're back with Justin Bieber.
