Pop sensation Selena Gomez, who had taken a break from singing to focus on her mental health, received much support and love from fellow musicians for her speech after she won the Favourite Pop/Rock Female Artist at the American Music Awards this year.
Biggies like Lady Gaga, Camila Cabello and Alexandra Raisman took to the social media to congratulate the 24-year-old singer’s moving acceptance speech.
While accepting the award, Gomez spoke out about her break from the limelight in an emotional address.
“I have to say thank you so much to my fans, because you guys are so damn loyal, and I don’t know what I did to deserve you,” she expressed in the speech.
“But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. And if that’s anything, whether you respect me or not, that’s one thing you should know about me is, I care about people. And thank you so much for this, this is for you,” she concluded.

Gaga later posted another Instagram message that concluded saying, “Just remember what Selena said. If you’re broken, you don’t have to stay broken.”
Thank you to my fans for never giving up on me and giving me a Million Reasons to stick around. The stage last night was a replica of my backyard where I spend a lot of time looking out over my property line and singing with my guitar. Thinking about my life thinking, about yours, and how we can make the world a better place together. Thank you so much for how you've blessed me. I hope I got to share a small piece of my big heart with you last night. ❤️ Just remember what Selena said. If you're broken, you don't have to stay broken.
