Selena Gomez has won 14 Teen Choice Awards over the course of her still relatively young career, but perhaps none so meaningful as being declared the Ultimate Choice for 2014.
Upon winning, Gomez, looking gorgeous and so grown-up in a chic black pantsuit and sleek ponytail, had this to say:
“I have to be honest, especially this month, I cannot thank you guys because you remind me amidst all the stuff that we deal with personally, you remind me what’s important and 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 and I really appreciate everything that you’ve done.
“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’s strong, she’s given up her life for me and she’s so beautiful and I want all of you to love your mom and give her everything because she’s incredible. This is for you, this doesn’t belong to me, this is always for you. Thank you for letting me do what I love.”
Awww. We’ll add video of Selena’s acceptance speech as soon as we have it.
