Madonna is Billboard Woman of the Year 2016
Billboard has announced that singer Madonna is its Woman of the Year 2016.
This comes in a year that she extended her record as the highest grossing female touring artiste of all time.
For years, Madonna has managed to remain a great force in pop culture. She is the best-selling female recording artist of all time, with 8 No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 and 12 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and is a seven-time Grammy winner.
She is also the first female pop star with true control of her career and image.
Madonna will receive the honor at the annual Women in Music event on December 9, in New York City. The event is held to identify the 50 most powerful female executives in the music industry every year.
