At last night’s American Music Awards, Selena Gomez made an emotional comeback into the public eye.

Earlier this year, the singer announced that she would be taking some time off after revealing that she was suffering with Lupus related depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. The news came after the singer opened up about feeling uncertain with her life, and after US Weekly reported that she was heading into rehab to deal with her problems.

While the star has been on a self-professed break, however, that hasn’t stopped her from releasing new music. In fact, she totally slayed our lives with her Cashmere Cat collaboration “Trust Nobody.”

Now, Selena Gomez has made a proper return to public life and we couldn’t be more proud of her.

Continuing, she went on to say that she didn’t want to see bodies on Instagram, but rather wanted to see what’s in people’s hearts.

We’re so proud of Selena for opening up about her difficulties. We know it can’t be easy to go through things in the public eye, and we’re in awe of her strength and totally love her for opening up with people. Good on you Selena!
