Billboard Names Ariana Grande Woman of The Year 2018
Award-winning pop star, Ariana Grande has been named the 2018 Billboard Woman of the Year.
The Sweetner crooner who recently released the song, Thank U, Next, about her exes will be honoured with the 2018 Billboard Woman of the Year award next month.
The announcement was made by Billboard in a statement which said she was picked as the recipient for the award following her ‘incredibly successful year and on the heels of her Billboard 200 chart-topping fourth album Sweetener.
“Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry,” says Ross Scarano, Billboard’s VP of Content. “Certain in her convictions, she consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn’t hospitable to that sort of strength in young women. She’s got guts, she’s making some of the best music of her career, and she’s absolutely deserving of Woman of the Year.”
The 25-year-old R&B songstress also tweeted
“thank u @billboard for this honor.”
Ariana will be presented with the award on December 6th and she joins a history of icons who have been previously honoured as Woman of the Year, including Selena Gomez, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.
