Selena Gomez made a *triumphant comeback at the American Music Awards on Nov 20. She took her first AMA award and made a heartfelt speech about her struggles. “I had to stop, because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside, and I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down,” the singer said while receiving the trophy for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist. “But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken,” she added. Earlier in August, Gomez decided to take time off from her career to deal with depression and anxiety resulting from lupus and this was her first major public appearance since then.
