“In 2014, this stage was actually the first time I was authentically 100 percent honest with all of you,” Gomez began her speech. “Most of you know a lot of my life whether I liked it or not."
She continued, "I had to stop. Because I had everything, and I was absolutely broken inside. And I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down." Gomez then went out to share hope with others, saying that if you too felt broken, you didn't have to stay that way. She honestly blew everyone away and became a huge winner of the night.
Following the Mexican-American's acceptance for Best Pop/Rock Female Artist, celebrities poured messages on social media in support for her, and she even shared a very sweet moment with Gaga backstage, who was very much in awe of Gomez's big heart. "So dope I got to hang with with the biggest rockstar of the night (Ya,know besides Sting and Green Day) ," the "Joanne" singer captioned a photo of herself and Gomez hugging, "...the girl with the biggest prize of all a BIG Heart that she shares with the world."
The 24-year-old superstar recently announced she was taking a break from the spotlight in August 2016 to take care of her health as she's been suffering from Lupus, and entered rehab for anxiety and depression in October. This was her first public appearance since.
