The American Music Awards was the first public appearance of Selena, after she took a break to take care of her health. Selena was diagnosed with Lupus last year and, after experiencing some side effects, she cleared her calendar. Indeed, she remained silent for some time in her social networks, what made her appearance and speech more special.
The favorite Pop/Rock female artist is the first AMA award she wins. Her acceptance speech was honest and emotional; she was obviously moved and explained that, even having everything, she felt broken inside, adding that nobody needs to feel this way. She thanked her fans for their loyalty and affirmed to be a person who cares about others.
