Celebrities show their support for Selena Gomez after her #AMAs appearance

Last night was a big night for Selena Gomez. After spending three months putting herself first, receiving treatment in rehab to get her health and happiness back on track, she made her first public appearance at the 2016 AMAs.

Selena delivered a simply stunning and highly emotive acceptance speech after being awarded the trophy for Favourite Pop/Rock Female Artist, which gave the world goosebumps and left many speechless as she presented herself with such grace, beauty and bravery. She opened up about her reasons for being absent from the public eye for the last few months and thrust admiration, strength and emotion into the hearts of all viewers with some inspiring words, encouraging others to seek help the way she has. Selena said: “I think it’s safe to say that a lot of you know a lot of my life whether I liked it or not and I had to stop. Because I had everything, and I was absolutely broken. And I kept it together and I swore I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down.” She continued, “I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore…if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken.”

Since giving her heart-wrenching speech that stole the show, Selena has been inundated with supportive messages from her adoring fans, also known as Selenators. However, some of the biggest names in music have also reached out to Selena to show their love for her.

Taylor Swift, who you’ll all know as Miss Gomez’s BFF – because they are well and truly friendship goals – was not at the ceremony in person but she was there in spirit as she watched along and home and was keen to show her happiness at the fact that her pal had just won such a huge award. Miss Swift posted a video on her Instagram story of the moment Selena was crowned the winner and Taylor and friends can be heard absolutely shrieking with joy in the background. Taylor also wrote the word ‘baby’ on the screen. Now try telling us that isn’t adorable!

Lady Gaga was also eager to show her admiration for Selena. During her speech, the camera panned to Gaga, who seemed to be trying to hold back her tears. The ‘Bad Romance’ hitmaker then shared a snap of the two hugging backstage and captioned it “So dope I got to hang with with the biggest rockstar of the night. (Ya,know besides Sting and Green Day) …the girl with the biggest prize of all a BIG Heart that she shares with the world.”

Ariana Grande, who was also at the event and delivered a show-stopping performance, spoke beautifully about Selena during a red carpet interview. The ‘Into You’ star said Selena “looks like a princess” and that she was “so happy that she’s here” and that she’s “out and about.” The American beauty then went over to Selena during the ceremony to shower her with even more love.


Furthermore, 1D boy Niall Horan could be seen chatting to Selena. E! Online reported that he walked up to her as she headed back to her seat, gave her a nice hug and said “You did so good!” ‘Starving’ songstress Hailee Steinfeld also gave Selly G a hug as she walked off the stage after presenting her award to her.

Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello was one of the many stars to post kind words about Selena on Twitter.

Pia Mia, Fall Out Boys’ Pete Wentz and Colton Haynes tweeted about their love for her too.
