Recently she said she'd 'stepped back a bit' from the spotlight after her kidney transplant.
But on Friday, Selena Gomez stepped back into the spotlight again, to highlight the importance of giving back during WE Day.
'You are focusing on making the world a more hopeful place and you encourage me and all of my friends to do the same,' the 25-year-old told the audience, in an event that was actually taped back in April.

'As maybe some of you know, I had a kidney transplant this year and so many people from across the country reached out and they offered their support,' said the Spring Breakers star.
'And others told me how hearing my story helped them find their own courage and helped other people want to get involved and donate.'
'They reminded me how lucky I am to have a platform where I can share with you guys and I can pay the love forward.'

The Wolves hitmaker made the decision to remove herself from anything that leaves her feeling stressed and has also opted to move out of Los Angeles.
She told Good Morning America: 'Honestly I've just kind of stepped back a bit. I'm enjoying my life. I don't really think about anything that causes me stress anymore, which is really nice.
'I don't even live in Los Angeles anymore. I don't pay attention to trying to get people to like me as much.' the Barney & Friends alum added.
Her Lupus diagnosis came nearly five years ago but it wasn’t until the summer of 2017 that Selena underwent a kidney transplant.
Selena's pal Francia Raisa - who gave her kidney to the singer - previously revealed her friend was 'so scared she might die' when she had her kidney transplant.
She said: 'I remember getting a text message from Selena saying, 'I'm so scared I might die,' and I was like, 'What?' ... That's when she got the complication where the kidney turned and broke an artery and she had to go back in and they actually had to take a vein out of her leg ... and build a wall around her artery.
'[I was told], "It's going to be hard, the recipient is going to glow and she's going to recover a lot faster than the donor because she's getting something she needs and you are losing something you don't need to lose. It's going to be hard." And it was very hard. Selena and I both went through a depression.'
The duo kept the surgery a secret until September when Selena wrote about it on social media.
