Singer Selena Gomez, who took a break from the spotlight for self-recovery, made a stunning comeback at the American Music Awards 2016 on Sunday night. Gomez looked beautiful in a scarlet sleeveless Prada gown.

Gomez returned to the limelight after taking a hiatus for her battle with lupus, but this is not the only reason for her fans to celebrate. Gomez won American Music Awards – favourite pop/rock female artist – on Sunday night. After picking up the award, Gomez gave an emotional speech, which won several hearts.

Read below her acceptance speech at the American Music Awards 2016:

"Thank you guys so much. In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically 100% honest with all of you. It's safe to say that most of you know my life whether I liked it or not. And, I had to stop because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside. And I kept it all together, enough to where I never let you down. But I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram, I want to see what it's here (heart).

"I'm not trying to get validation nor do I need it anymore. All I can say is from the bottom of my heart is I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every single day with people that I love. And I have to say thank you so much to my fans because you guys are so damn loyal and I don't know what I did to deserve you. But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. And if that's anything whether you respect me or not, that's one thing you should know about me. I care about people and thank you so much for this. This is for you. Thank you."
