"Going through that makes me look at life a little bit differently, and I am grateful for that".

She concluded: "I think it's an important time where people can say what they feel and know their platforms are used for something great".

An emotional Selena Gomez broke down in tears as she came forward to accept the Woman of the Year award at the 2017 Billboard Women in Music event on Thursday night. Raisa watched Gomez's ongoing struggle with lupus and chose to undergo kidney transplant surgery.

Earlier in the day, her Billboard cover was released.

As Camila Cabello, Mary J Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Kehlani, Solange, Grace VanderWaal, Selena Gomez, and Atlantic Records COO Julie Greenwald accepted their awards, they acknowledged that this year has been a meaningful one for women in the music business, as females young and old have continued to pave the way for progress.

The Bad Liar hitmaker, who was diagnosed with Lupus several years ago, went on: "I knew that I wanted to be a part of something great and I wanted people to feel great, because I love people". "It was really hard in the beginning", she admitted.

"I'm constantly somebody that likes to grow and feel like, 'All right, what can I be better at, what could I do better at, where could my confidence be stronger?'" she explained. The 25-year-old faced serious (and understandable) backlash, because the 82-year-old was accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was just seven years old. "I'm out there fighting for you". I am incredibly blessed.
