Billboard Women in Music: Honorees Stress Importance of Female Empowerment

Selena Gomez Justin Bieber Christmas

By contrast, Selena - who recently rekindled her romance with Justin Bieber - still has a series of pictures featuring her ex on her own Instagram page.

The star, who has had a well-documented battle with Lipus, previously said: 'It was really kind of life or death.

The 25-year-old singer, who is back in the arms of lover Justin Bieber, stunned in a pair of high-waisted leather pants, which she twinned with a revealing black bustier. Cabello accepted her Breakthrough Artist Award first, performing a jazzy rendition of her smash hit "Havana" before dedicating her speech to her mom, who advises, "Whenever you're the most afraid, that's when you've gotta make the jump".

Selena, 25, and the 27-year-old, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, split in October after ten-months of dating.


Gomez later reflected on how "incredibly lucky" she was. "I grew up with Demi [Lovato], Nick and Joe [Jonas] and Miley [Cyrus] - we've gone through seasons in our lives". Although she did give her a shoutout after the release of her new music, Swift and Gomez have reportedly been keeping their distance from one another as they focus on their individual careers and their romances. "I was like, 'Of course I'll get tested"'. "But that doesn't mean caring for someone ever goes away".

Raisa said the pair grew even closer as they both healed from the surgery. Through her tears, Selena said "To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award". I want people to know that I respect the platform that I have so deeply.

At the end of her heartfelt speech, Selena hinted more music in the future.

Her friend and former costar Elle Fanning started out Gomez's introduction, applauding her for using her trials and tribulations to help others feel stronger.
