The relationship between A&R and artist can be complicated. But when you find common ground, respect, trust, and appreciation anything is possible. @selenagomez we’ve argued and we’ve celebrated. We’ve cried, and we’ve hugged. It’s been a fantastic journey. I’ve watched you overcome health and personal issues, find your voice, and identify and own your place in this crazy business. You are the genuine article. You know exactly what you want and exactly what you don’t. It’s this fact in particular that has allowed me, @johnjanick and everyone at @interscope to be successful in helping you along this musical journey. You are absolutely deserving of this Woman of the Year @billboard honor. And to @franciaraisa who I only just met, thank you for helping to keep our girl strong. You both are incredible women. Lastly, congrats to all of the immensely brilliant and talented women honored last night. I look up to you all.
