While accepting her first ever AMA for best pop/rock female artist, Gomez delivered an emotional speech on everything she was going through this past year.

“In 2014, this stage was actually the first time I was authentically 100 percent honest with all of you,” Gomez began. Then her speech took an emotional toll as she got super honest about her feelings. “Most 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 inside."

As you know, 2016 was a rough year for Gomez. In August, she announced that she was going to take time off to focus on her health due to side effects from her Lupus disease, and in October, she entered rehab for anxiety and depression. Tonight marked her first appearance since her hiatus.

The Mexican-American also thanked for fans for being "so damn loyal" during her personal time off and sincerely reminded them that, “If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken."
