Selena Gomez gives tearful speech thanking friend who saved her life

Селена Гомес поразила Сеть образом 13-летней девочки

In his speech, Gomez thanked the friend of France, Raisa, which was the donor and donated to the singer's his kidney.

The "Wolves" singer was asked about the allegations against her director in a new interview with Billboard, and she is not quite sure how to respond. "I am so grateful for all the older women who have lifted all of us up, because I couldn't be here without all of you", Gomez added.

And Selena herself hopes she can make a "positive impact" by being honest about her health problems, which have seen her undergo a kidney transplant earlier this year in her battle against lupus.

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


Justin Bieber's girlfriend wept as she explained that the award belonged to Raisa who saved her life by giving her the biggest gift of all. At the 2017 Women in Music event, the actress was once again by her BFF's side to present her with the honor of being Billboard's "Woman of the Year".

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.

"That time for me was so painful and really hard and very lonely". I was just glad I was able to do. "She [saved my life]", Gomez said. "I want people to know that I respect the platform that I have so deeply because I knew that I wanted to be a part of something great and I wanted people to feel great because I love people". 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.
