"I don't how know to repay [this honor]". In her acceptance speech, she paid an emotional tribute to her kidney donor and thanked her for saving her life. The "Wolves" crooner was asked about her decision to sign onto the project, but basically said nothing with her response.

"I've never felt as proud to be a women in the industry than I do today", Gomez said while adding how crucial it is that voices "are being heard for the fist time".

Earlier this year, Francia Raisa did something for Selena Gomez that even the closest of friends would struggle to do: give her bestie one of her kidneys.

In the life of the singer in 2017 have been many changes: semi-annual creative break, parting with reperom WeekŠµnd and kidney transplant due to complications caused by systemic lupus erythematosus.

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

"The Heart Wants What It Wants" singer stated that her condition was a matter of life or death and Raisa saved her life. Does she feel like it is a battle scar? "She [saved my life]", Gomez said.

After such a huge year, it's no surprise that Selena was awarded Billboard's Woman Of The Year, because, well, she's an wonderful human being... She commented, "We've been friends for nearly ten years now, we've gone through highs and lows together..." "I was honoured, and if I was in the same situation, she wouldn't have thought twice about doing it for me". "It was really hard in the beginning", she admitted. "I love you so much sis". 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.
