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

During her acceptance speech, Gomez showed her appreciation for BFF Francia RaĆ­sa, her donor. Of the honor Selena said, "The idea of Woman of the Year made me a little uncomfortable".

The star confirmed she'd undergone kidney surgery back in mid-September, with the singer taking to Instagram to admit "there aren't enough words to describe how I can possibly thank my attractive friend", along with a photo of the pair holding hands in separate hospital beds.

Selena went on to say that she doesn't really concern herself anymore with how people think she should live her life. "Honestly, I couldn't be more grateful for the position I've been given in my career".

The 25-year-old entertainer from Texas told the audience as she wiped tears from her eyes: "To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life".

Selena, who is combating lupus, said, "This isn't going to be my last (battle)..." The former Fifth Harmony member performed her sultry single "Havana", which hit No. 1 on Billboard's pop songs charts this week. "When I look at my body now, I just see life". In the issue, she opened up about her split from The Weeknd and reconnecting with Justin Bieber. "She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me".

She said: 'I feel like for me, with my music, I've been able to illustrate the things that I want. In acting and in film, you're around a much more stable community. I feel incredibly lucky'.

"Just seeing my friend get sick, and more sick, and more sick was hard but at the same time so positive for our friendship".
