Selena is Billboard‘s 2017 Woman of the Year.
As music’s biggest names stepped out to attend Billboard‘s annual Women in Music Dinner and Awards Gala, Selena received one of the biggest honors of the night.
“To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life,” the singer explained through tears.
Selena continued, “I couldn’t be more grateful for the position that I’ve been given in my career. I want people to know that I respect the platform that I have so deeply…I’ve never felt more proud to be a woman in this industry. I am so grateful for all the older women who have helped us up.”
