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.

During her acceptance speech, the singer cried as she paid tribute to Francia, saying "To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life,".

"I don't know how to explain the place that I'm in other than to say I just feel full", she added, repeatedly indicating that she isn't concerned with how people perceive her.

As for the Weeknd, she said they parted ways as besties, "genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me". But she has since promised to make a comeback with an "epic album".

The singer also noted that she had some "really hard times" following her surgery over the summer. I'm very, very lucky.

Meanwhile, if she wanted to cover up her scar, she could, but doesn't plan to just yet: "When I look at my body now, I just see life".

The singing sensation had shocked her fanbase back in September when she revealed that, due to complications in her ongoing battle with lupus, she had received an emergency kidney transplant, with Raisa selflessly stepping up for her best friend. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my handsome friend Francia Raisa.

"I love Kevin [Systrom], the creator of Instagram, and he has gotten mad at me in the past when I was like, 'I have to take a break from it, '" Selena shared.
