She has been a charismatic singing sensation for years now and has successfully created a special space in the hearts of her million fans. Selena Gomez just made her point very clear at the American Music Awards 2016, as she accepted her award in the Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist category. Her acceptance speech will be remembered for years and years from now.

Selena Gomez began by saying, "In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically 100 percent honest with you". As she continued, her voice became stronger, emotions filling her throat with a lump. "I think it's safe to say that a lot 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. And I kept it together and I swore I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down".

Selena Gomez  moved almost everybody by quoting that no more she needs a validation and nor she is trying to get it. This is just not an indicative of her remarkable success story but also her brevity to come up openly about the trauma she has faced in the past. For those who have been through something similar in the past couple of years, Selena Gomez has already sent some really positive vibes. She ended her speech by saying, "If you are broken, you don't have to stay broken".

Being Selena Gomez' first AMA, this one has been very special to her, she never forgets about her huge fan following. Meanwhile, she thanked all of them for supporting her throughout the time, since her personal life hit a hiatus. In 2014 AMAs, when Selena Gomez mesmerized us with her "The heart wants what it wants" performance, she got teary eyed and still carried it out so well, as her relationship with Justin Bieber came to an end.
