Madonna Named Billboard's Woman of the Year 2016
Madonna has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year, and will be honored at the annual ceremony set to take place on December 9!
“Madonna is one of a miniscule number of super-artists whose influence and career transcend music,” Janice Min, president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group, said in a statement. “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.”
The 11th annual Women in Music event will air on Lifetime on December 12.
