Selena Gomez gives tearful speech thanking friend who saved her life

"I've been hanging out with an old friend, and basically every conversation, we want it to be intentional".

She then paid tribute to those who had come before her.

"I think altering or editing myself for the sake of others has been something that I have done my whole life", she explained. "I'm so grateful for the older women who have lifted all of us up".

In a speech before giving Gomez the award, Raisa said she "didn't' think twice" about her decision.

Breaking down in tears, the "Wolves" singer said, "I think Francia should be getting this award".

Last night, Selena Gomez was honored as Billboard's Woman of the Year, an accolade that comes after a year in which she received a life-changing kidney transplant. She commented, "We've been friends for nearly ten years now, we've gone through highs and lows together..."

"I don't have flawless abs, but I feel like I'm wonderfully made", she said.

"I don't know how I'll ever repay it but maybe I'll make an epic album next year", Gomez said. I'm very, very lucky. "She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me". It was what I needed to do for my overall health.

The singer also noted that she had some "really hard times" following her surgery over the summer.

Meanwhile, if she wanted to cover up her scar, she could, but doesn't plan to just yet: "When I look at my body now, I just see life".

"I love Kevin [Systrom], the creator of Instagram, and he has gotten mad at me in the past when I was like, 'I have to take a break from it, '" Selena shared.
