Selena Gomez has spoken out for the first time since a family tragedy.
A week after her mother's miscarriage went public, Gomez posted the following message on her Facebook page last night:
“Belated Merry Christmas everybody.. I can’t thank you enough for all of your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate every one of you.. I love you all so much and we hope you and your family had a beautiful Christmas! Love, Me, Momma, Brian and our guardian angel Scarlett."
Our thoughts go out to Selena and her family. It's little comfort in this time of sorrow, but Gomez did crack our top 10 celebrities of 2011 list. She sits at number eight.
