Selena Gomez won the Ultimate Choice Award at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, and the 22-year-old singer got quite emotional during her acceptance speech!
Selena said, "You guys! Thank you so much! I have to be honest, especially this month, I cannot thank you guys [enough]. You remind me amidst all the stuff that we deal with personally, you remind me of what's important. That's giving and loving and caring about each other. I'm not trying to preach or any of that, it's just that you guys make me better. I really appreciate everything that you've done."
Selena didn't mention Justin Bieber, but she did give her mother Mandy Teefey a shout out. "There's one thing I want to say -- I want to thank my mom so much because she's the greatest human being in the world," she said. "She's strong and she's given up her life for me and she's so beautiful. I want all of you to love your mom and give her everything, because she's incredible."
A teary Gomez wrapped up her speech and said, "This [award] is for you, this never belongs to me, this always goes to you. Thank you for letting me do what I love!"
