Billboard Women in Music: Honorees Stress Importance of Female Empowerment


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. "To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life", Gomez told the audience.

Selena's comments that she and the Starboy crooner ended on good terms comes after it was revealed The Weeknd has gone as far as deleting every photo of himself and Selena together off Instagram. Fanning also acknowledged the moment she met Gomez considering her as am empowered woman and a true friend.

I'm not 18, or 19, or 20.

"I want to live a life that's worth living", explains Selena, insisting that she's going to do what's best for her, no matter how it looks to the general public.

The star, who has had a well-documented battle with Lipus, previously said: 'It was really kind of life or death. "I've learned so much from Selena growing up in our friendship". "She's standing here and being honoured and I've seen her career continue to soar, it's wonderful", she told Billboard Online. I grew up with all of these people, and it's so cool to see where everybody is. Nick and Joe [Jonas] and Miley [Cyrus] -we've gone through seasons in our lives.

In conclusion, I think that was quite the pick for woman of the year. Of course, this relationship comes with a lot of ups and downs, so things may not be flawless forever, but for now, they definitely seem to be falling back in love.

Previously, during her cover interview for the company's magazine, Selena - who recently ended her relationship with fellow singer The Weeknd - admitted she had made a decision to let 23-year-old Justin back into her life as she had never stopped "caring" for the star. Justin went to Canada and Selena was in Texas.
