Selena Gomez Holds Back Tears During Her Emotional AMAs Speech

After strutting her stuff on the American Music Awards [1] red carpet on Sunday night, Selena Gomez made her way inside the Microsoft Theater, where she was honored with the favorite female artist award [2]. Not only was the honor monumental on its own, but her journey to get there hasn't been easy considering her recent stint in rehab [3]. During her speech, Selena got extra emotional as she thanked her fans for their support and even had a few words of encouragement for them, saying, "I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see what's in here . . . If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken." Grab some tissues before watching the video above because, trust us, you'll need them — just ask Lady Gaga!
