Selena Gomez gives tearful speech thanking friend who gave her a kidney

In September, Gomez revealed in a vulnerable Instagram post that - as effect of her lupus (she was diagnosed in 2013) - she was forced to undergo emergency kidney transplant surgery earlier this year.

After years of struggling with anxiety and depression stemming from her long-term lupus battle, Gomez said she now handles her challenges in a healthy way.

Selena Gomez broke down in tears while accepting the Woman of the Year award at Billboard's Women in Music 2017 event.

"I don't know how I'll ever repay it but maybe I'll make an epic album next year for all of you guys", she said.

Francia Raisa - the actress who donated her kidney to Gomez - presented her with the honor. "I want people to know that I respect the platform that I have so greatly".

Washington D.C.: Selena Gomez is Billboard's "Woman of the Year", but she feels that for her this accolade should go to her best friend and kidney donor, Francia Raisa.

Selena - who received an organ from her friend Francia Raisa over the summer comments - previously praised her transplant as a "beautiful thing", and believes her operation has "made her" who she is now. When asked if blondes have more fun, Selena replied, "So far, it's been great I am not complaining!" Specifically this year, I would like to thank my wonderful team and my family because they stuck with me through some really hard times. "Going through that makes me look at life a little bit differently, and I am grateful for that". I'm grateful for that. I love you so much sis.
