Selena Gomez oozes authenticity.
At the 2016 American Music Awards, Selena empowered the audience and her beloved fans with a powerful message about self-love. The singer made the gorgeous speech while accepting the Favorite Female Artist award.
As we previously reported, Gomez has struggled with A LOT over the last few years, whether it be issues with the limelight or her lupus diagnosis. In fact, the entertainer checked herself into rehab for depression back in September.
Luckily for Ms. Gomez and her fans, she’s BACK and stronger than ever. Girl is ready to face life head on, everybody!
According to the star, she was a “broken” person who relied on the validation of others to a damaging degree, revealing:
“I had to stop…I was absolutely broken inside and I …I kept it too much together and I tore myself down.”
The beauty then placed her hand on her heart and genuinely implored her fans:
“I don’t want to see your bodies on Instagram, I want to see what’s in here.”
