Selena Gomez Tearfully Accepts Woman of the Year Award at Billboard Event (Video)

Selena Gomez lets a tear run down her face while accept the Woman of the Year award at the 2017 Billboard Women in Music event on Thursday (November 30) in Hollywood.

The 25-year-old entertainer was presented the award by her A Rainy Day in New York co-star Elle Fanning and her best friend and kidney donor Francia Raisa.

“To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life,” Selena said while tearing up. “I would like to thank my amazing team and family because they stuck with me through some really hard times.”

“I couldn’t be more grateful for the position that I’ve been given in my career. I want people to know that I respect the platform that I have so deeply,” she added. “I’ve never felt more proud to be a woman in this industry. I am so grateful for all the older women who have helped us up.”

    Someone needs to educate this moron. She wouldn’t have died without the transplant, she would have gone on dialysis.

    Let me see, Ariana Grande organised a benefit concert in like a week for the victims of a terrorist attack, Rihanna reached to politicians on twitter for months to talk about the education system, Beyoncé went to Houston and served food/donated money to the victims of the flood, Scarlett Johansson raised almost half a million dollars for Puerto Rico, Demi Lovato raising awareness on mentall illness literally everytime she can (which annoys people for some reason), but they give the award to Selena who all she did was pay a “friend” for a kidney, date someone famous and dumped him to date someone else that could get her more attention, support a pedophile/ molester so she could be in his movie, and became the most followed person on Instagram (which is apparently an achivement), and she gets the Woman of the Year award? Mmmm….
