Madonna has been awarded this year's Billboard's Woman of the Year title
Music icon Madonna has been named Billboard's Woman of the Year.
The 11th annual Billboard Women In Music event will take place in New York City on December 9 (and will be broadcast on Lifetime a few days later on December 12), where the Queen of Pop will be honoured for her incredible career.
Janice Min, the president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group, issued a statement on the exciting news and said:
"Madonna is one of a minuscule number of super-artists whose influence and career transcend music. With her creative vision, relentless innovation, and dedication to philanthropic causes, she is an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people around the world, all while shattering every career record out there."
"She is an important feminist on top of that, a one-of-a-kind artist who’s used her influence to change the conversation around women, sexuality and equal rights."
