Selena Gomez touched a lot of hearts at Sunday night’s (Nov. 20) 2016 American Music Awards show when she opened up about the struggles that have kept her out of the public eye for several months.
Accepting her award for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, Gomez said,
“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.”
Gomez continued, “I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore.”
The speech was powerful, emotional and many of musics biggest stars were moved by it. It was certainly a message to all, rich, poor, famous and not…it was a message of love, strength and hope. Well done Selena.
