Selena Gomez has been named Billboard magazine's Woman of the Year, and with that came several revelations about her physical and emotional mindset following her kidney transplant over the summer.

Gomez gave a tearful acceptance speech, where she acknowledged her best friend, Francia Rasia for donating her kidney to her. Raisa, who presented the award to Gomez, is an actress best known for her role as Adrian Lee on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. I could not be more grateful for the position that I have been given in my career. Gomez continued to discuss the how lucky she feels to have the platform that she does, and how proud she is of all the women in the industry who have spoken out recently about various issues.

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". "We are so close that we literally are the same kidney type".

Breaking down in tears, the "Wolves" singer said, "I think Francia should be getting this award".

No one actually cares about Harley Quinn or wants to see Warner Bros. ruin more iconic comic book characters. In September, Warner Bros. finally tapped Gavin O'Connor ( The Accountant ) to helm Suicide Squad 2 .

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 lovely friend", along with a photo of the pair holding hands in separate hospital beds. "I don't how know to repay [this honor]". As for to whom and what she attributes her happiness right now, Selena revealed, "I would honestly say, not to sound cheesy, probably my faith, but at the same time I just, I really work hard on myself".

The 25-year-old singer made her comeback at the 2017 American Music Awards this November. But I definitely feel hopeful. I'm fortunate enough not to have experienced some of the traumatic things that other women have had to go through.

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".

Beyonce, Pink, Taylor Swift and Fergie are the former recipients of the award.
