Selena Gomez Tears Up, Thanks Mom at Teen Choice Awards (VIDEO)

Selena Gomez got a little teary-eyed at the Teen Choice Awards this Sunday.

After being presented the Ultimate Choice Award (an award previously won by Ashton Kutcher last year, Taylor Swift in 2011 and, yes, the entire Twilight Saga in 2012), Selena gave a heartfelt acceptance speech where she teared up and told us all to love our mothers.

"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 word and she's strong and she's given up her life for me and she's so beautiful," Selena said. "I want all of you to love your mom and give her everything because she's incredible."

Then she held up her surfboard award and said, "This is for you. This never belongs to me. This is for you. Thank you for letting me do what I love."

The past few weeks haven't been too great for Selena. The star recently got in a car accident she blamed on the paparazzi.

"Only I'd get into an accident because of men with cameras who have great careers and offer the couple a package at Burke Williams. Oh LA," she tweeted about the incident. We're guessing after that accident, Selena definitely received a tremendous amount of support from her mother.
