As if Selena Gomez’s jaw-dropping appearance in that red Prada ball gown at the American Music Awards wasn’t enough, her speech was empowering and heartbreaking — cementing her status as a truly incredible artist.

She won Favorite Female Artist in the Pop/Rock category, and used her moments on the winning stage to address her mental health. She explained to fans that there was a time when she felt “broken inside,” but emphasized that if there are others who feel the same way, “you do not have to stay broken.”

Many people connected emotionally with Gomez’s powerful words, and voiced their overwhelmingly positive and supportive reactions on social media.

Taylor Swift was pretty happy!

And even Lady GaGa posted a special message.

Awwww. She really does have a huge heart, and we share all these sentiments. Sending so much love and plenty of good vibes to Selena Gomez right now. Congratulations on your win, and we can’t wait to gush about you again asap!

One more for the road? Well OKAY if you insist.

Keep kicking butt, girl! We’re here every step of the way.
