Selena breaks down as she dedicates award to donor for life-saving transplant

Selena Gomez has been named Billboard magazine's Woman of the Year, and with that came several revelations about her physical and emotional mindset following her kidney transplant over the summer.

One such celebrated woman was 25-year-old singer and actress Selena Gomez who was awarded the coveted Woman Of The Year prize and delivered a tearful acceptance speech. Honestly, I couldn't be more grateful for the position that I've been given in my career from 7 to 14 to now.

Francia, who we've already dubbed the world's best BFF, also had kind words to say about SG. "I'm not really ashamed", she said. "We are so close that we literally are the same kidney type".

In September, Gomez revealed in a vulnerable Instagram post that - as outcome of her lupus (she was diagnosed in 2013) - she was forced to undergo emergency kidney transplant surgery earlier this year.

After such a huge year, it's no surprise that Selena was awarded Billboard's Woman Of The Year, because, well, she's an fantastic human being... 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. "Going through that makes me look at life a little bit differently, and I am grateful for that".

Gomez also thanked her team and family members that helped her get through the hard time of recovering from her surgery and having to stay out of the spotlight.

Speaking to Billboard about how she was feeling after receiving a kidney transplant, she said "I'm good. That's just who she is". "I'm fortunate enough not to have experienced some of the traumatic things that other women have had to go through", noted Gomez.

Beyonce, Pink, Taylor Swift and Fergie are the former recipients of the award.
