All eyes were on Selena Gomez as she stepped back into the public eye after rehab on Sunday at the “American Music Awards”. The last thing the media has heard from her was when she stepped out of the spotlight to take care of her health three months ago with a spell in rehab.
After ending her tour over the summer Selena Gomez released a statement to People that read “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 represent their own challenges. 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.”
Later it was reported that the pop songstress checked into a rehab facility in Tennessee. The news came after Selena got into an Instagram feud with Justin Bieber after he threw a fit over fans attacking his fling with Sofia Richie. The behavior from Selena was out of character because she usually keeps out of social media drama and it was speculated that the side effects from lupus caused her to act impulsively.
It seems that Selena Gomez is back and better than ever. There were rumors that the graceful singer would make and appearance at the AMA’s and when she did she was welcomed with open arms from celebrities and fans alike.
Niall Horan, Ariana Grande and of course her bestie Taylor swift were all moved by the beautiful speech she gave when she won Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist. But perhaps the person who was moved the most was Mother Monster Lady Gaga who visibly wept and loudly cheered from her seat. Selena and Gaga met up back stage and Gaga posted a picture of the two on her Instagram after. Colton Haynes, Camila Cabello and Pete Wentz also showed their support and love for the powerful acceptance speech.
Selena gave the speech in a stunning red dress and sleeked back hair that made her shine beautifully and look as graceful as a Holiday Barbie doll! In the speech which thanked fans and addressed her mental health she said “I had to stop. I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside. 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. If you are broken you do not have to stay broken. If that’s anything whether you respect me or not that’s the one thing you should know about me. I care about people.”
