Selena Gomez made a public appearance last night at the AMA’s after announcing in August that she will be taking some time off from her career to focus on her well being.
The singer was suffering from Lupus related depression, anxiety and panic attacks. She also decided to check herself into a rehab to deal with her uncertain feelings about life.
However, this hasn’t stopped her from creating new music, her recent collaboration with Cashmere Cat ‘Trust Nobody’ has gained a brilliant response.
She is back to the public life and her fans couldn’t be any prouder.
Selena Gomez showed up at the American Music Awards last night (20th November) wearing a gorgeous red gown, with statement earrings and a low pony tail. She won the award for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist.
When receiving the award, she made a powerful speech addressing her problems.
“In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically 100 percent honest with you,” Selena said, her voice shaky with emotion. “I think it’s safe to say that a lot of you know a lot of my life whether I liked it or not and I had to stop. Because I had everything, and I was absolutely broken. And I kept it together and I swore I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down.”
Along with this, she also addressed how she didn’t want to see people’s bodies on Instagram but rather what’s in their heart.
“I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore. All I can say is I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every day with people that I love. I have to say thank you so much to my fans, because you guys are so damn loyal, and I don’t know what I did to deserve you,” she said.
“But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. That’s one thing you should know about me: I care about people. And this is for you.”
