Raisa and Elle Fanning presented Gomez with the Woman of the Year Award, and Gomez used her speech as an opportunity to thank her friend, yet another time, for donating her kidney.

An emotional Selena Gomez broke down in tears as she came forward to accept the Woman of the Year award at the 2017 Billboard Women in Music event on Thursday night. "Honestly, I couldn't be more grateful for the position I've been given in my career". Gomez continued to discuss the how lucky she feels to have the platform that she does, and how proud she is of all the women in the industry who have spoken out recently about various issues. "I was honoured, and if I was in the same situation, she wouldn't have thought twice about doing it for me. We are so close that we literally are the same kidney type".

Now, Gomez is returning to the studio, getting back on stage - her first televised performance of the year was two weeks ago at the American Music Awards - and working on reinventing herself once again.

".I'm so grateful for the older women who have lifted all of us up".

"I mean I don't think anybody truly, actually cares".

Israel bombs Gaza targets after mortar attack
Most of the dead were members of the terrorist organisation Islamic Jihad, which threatened retaliation . According to the Gaza Health Ministry, three Gazans were lightly wounded in the Israeli bombing.

After such a huge year, it's no surprise that Selena was awarded Billboard's Woman Of The Year, because, well, she's an awesome human being...

Gomez revealed on Instagram in September that she had received a kidney transplant, explaining she had not been able to promote her music over the summer as, "I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering".

The "Wolves" singer was asked about the allegations against her director in a new interview with Billboard, and she is not quite sure how to respond.

"Just seeing my friend get sick, and more sick, and more sick was hard but at the same time so positive for our friendship". "I'm out there fighting for you". 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.
