After taking some time off away from the spotlight, Gomez broke her silence at the AMAs with an inspiring message to those, who like her, feel "broken."

"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. I'm not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore ... If you are broken, you don't have to stay broken."
