Selena Gomez Returned to the Red Carpet with the Prettiest Ponytail It's been a tough year for Selena Gomez , and the strain showed as she picked up the award for Favorite Female Artist- Pop/Rock at the 2016 American Music Awards on Sunday night. The former Disney star was the surprise winner for the gong at the Microsoft Theater, but was emotional as she spoke to the audience and addressed her fans, revealed that she had been “completely broken inside” despite appearing to have it all. Selena claimed that the pressure of trying to maintain her lifestyle and keep everyone happy, it was the detriment to herself. “In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically 100% honest with all of you, I think it's safe to say, for most of my life, whether I liked it or not, and I had to stop because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside and I kept it all together and that's why I will never let you down,” the brunette beauty said. “But I kept it too much together where I let myself down. I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram, I want to see what's in here. I'm not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore,” before thanking her family, friends and 'loyal' fans.

Speaking to People, Selena said: “As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways. “I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.” She continued: “I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support.” Selena will be surrounded by some of her good pals, with model Gigi Hadid co-hosting the awards as well as One Direction star Niall Horan also performing.
