Selena Gomez Explains Why She Takes So Many Breaks From Instagram

Billboard Women In Music 2017- Show

Their friendship spans 14 years, but many didn't learn about their bond until mid-September when Gomez revealed that Francia saved her life.

Speaking about Raisa, Gomez said: "I think Francia should be getting this award".

"My kidneys were just done".

Ahead of the awards show on the red carpet, Raisa was asked about being a kidney donor to her friend and she answered: "What's scary is knowing she was two weeks away from kidney failure and I didn't find out until after the surgery. And I'm reminded by a team of people who believe in me even when I don't myself, and I couldn't be more luckier", the "SameOld Love" singer shared. "It was a very humbling experience".

She then paid tribute to those who had come before her.

"I don't have ideal abs, but I feel like I'm wonderfully made", she said. But she has since promised to make a comeback with an "epic album".

As this was a Women in Music event, Gomez's speech was heavily focused on females meaning she gracefully side-stepped any mentioned of Justin Bieber or The Weeknd.

"When people look up to me, I want them to see my life and have it reflect theirs and understand that if I can make it through everything that I've made it through and still making it through, you can do it as well".

Gomez also thanked friends and family for sticking by her through "hard times", and noted that women, in particular, have been driving forces behind her recovery. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. In acting and in film, you're around a much more stable community.
