Selena Gomez honours Francia Raisa for life-saving transplant

Selena Gomez

I think for me what's been great is that I've been able to live the life that I've wanted for myself. Raisa and Elle Fanning presented Gomez with the Woman of the Year Award, and Gomez used her speech as an opportunity to thank her friend, yet another time, for donating her kidney. "I'm so grateful, I'm so humbled, I'm so thankful", Blige said onstage while accepting her award. "I am so grateful for all the older women who have lifted all of us up, because I couldn't be here without all of you", Gomez added.

Ever the humble star, Gomez first acknowledged her best friend and kidney donor Francia Raisa saying, "To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life".

The 25-year-old singer proudly put the scar from her kidney transplant on display on social media after announcing she had undergone surgery. The former Fifth Harmony member performed her sultry single "Havana", which hit No. 1 on Billboard's pop songs charts this week.

Meanwhile, the singer is looking forward to sharing her new music and living her best life.

Selena - who received an organ from her friend Francia Raisa over the summer comments - previously praised her transplant as a "beautiful thing", and believes her operation has "made her" who she is now.

LA Auto Show: America spec Nissan Kicks unveiled
With the help of a smooth, efficient Xtronic CVT, fuel consumption should be quite low (official ratings have yet to be posted). And let's get one thing out of the way first: The Nissan Kicks isn't much of an SUV at all-not that it matters anymore.

After such a huge year, it's no surprise that Selena was awarded Billboard's Woman Of The Year, because, well, she's an incredible human being...

"That time for me was so painful and really hard and very lonely. That's just who she is".

She's beauty and she's grace, she's Miz Selena Gomez. "I've never felt this proud to be a woman in the industry as I am today", she said.

"I do feel like I earned it. I love you so much sis".
