The "Woman of the Year" honoree opened up about her big year.

Selena Gomez, Billboard's "Woman of the Year," has gone through a lot in 2017. From producing the hit Netflix show 13 Reasons Why to evolving her musical style with singles like "Fetish" and "Bad Liar" to being open about her recent kidney transplant, Gomez has experienced it all.

Before the 2017 Women in Music event, Gomez stopped by the red carpet to talk to Billboard's Chelsea Briggs and Keith Caulfield about her intense year, her new music and reuniting with Justin Bieber.

When asked about being crowned "Woman of the Year," the multitalented star called it an "honor." "Honestly, I don't know if I feel like I deserve it sometimes, but I am so honored to be part of an industry where there is real movement for women. I think it's important, I couldn't be more thrilled," said Gomez.

After enduring a kidney transplant earlier this year, Gomez revealed that the whole experience made her look at life "a little differently." "I'm good, I'm really good," she said with a smile.

Recently, Gomez has been seen reuniting with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. When asked about the influence Bieber has had on her life over the last few years, the "Wolves" singer said she thinks no one "truly, actually cares." "It's not really my concern anymore," Gomez said of disregarding how other people think she should live her life. "My family is great. My health is great. I love deeply, and I think that's just who I am. I'm not really ashamed."
