After being under the radar for the past three months, Selena Gomez made a triumphant return to the spotlight at last night's American Music Awards. Although her Prada gown looked beautiful on the red carpet, it was her powerful acceptance speech that stole the show. Receiving the award for Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist, Gomez addressed her absence and gave her fans an inspiring message.
“In 2014, this stage was actually the first time I was authentically 100% honest with all of you," Gomez told the audience, referencing her emotional performance that year. "I think it’s safe to say that 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. 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 went on to thank her loyal fans and give them a heartfelt piece of advice: “If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken," she said.
