“Billboard” named Selena Gomez its Woman of the Year!

Here’s what she tearfully said during her acceptance speech.

Selena Gomez also had a few things to say on the red carpet.

Selena also, surprisingly, talked about what brought her back to Justin Bieber.

She said, “I’m 25.  I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.”

She also said things are good with her ex-The Weeknd.

Selena said, “There’s such a true friendship. I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life. We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me.”
