However, Selena told Billboard that her split with the "Starboy" singer was not only amicable - it earned her a best friend. As Camila Cabello, Mary J Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Kehlani, Solange, Grace VanderWaal, Selena Gomez, and Atlantic Records COO Julie Greenwald accepted their awards, they acknowledged that this year has been a meaningful one for women in the music business, as females young and old have continued to pave the way for progress.

"I remember looking at myself in the mirror completely naked and thinking about all the things that I used to bitch about and just asking, 'Why?' I had someone in my life for a very long time who pointed out all the things that I didn't feel great about with myself", Gomez said. Gomez said the award should really be going to Raisa because she "saved my life". 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.

The pop star was given the award from her best friend Francia Raisa who had donated a kidney to Gomez over the summer as she required a transplant in her battle against lupus. "It was really hard in the beginning", she admitted.

"I feel incredibly lucky", Gomez said in her speech. I love deeply and I think that's just who I am. After revealing in September that she had received a life-saving kidney transplant, she only recently made her return to the stage in a heavy performance of her latest single, "Wolves", at the AMAs. She's enjoying where she is, being able to say no and "being part of the world".

She auditioned for Woody Allen's 2018 comedy "A Rainy Day in New York" five times. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery.
