Joining the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry, Pink, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift , Madonna and many more, the 25-year-old Fetish singer earned the 2017 title of ‘Woman of the Year’. That’s right the infamous honor made by the Billboard 200 goes to Selena Gomez.
The award ceremony is set to take place on November 30th at the Roy Dolby Ballroom in Los Angeles. This is definitely not Gomez’s first rodeo, as the talented singer, actress, producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist has already taken the Billboard charts by storm with leading numbers twice in the past year.
John Amato, president of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group had nothing but kind words to say about the “It Ain’t Me” singer;
“Not only is Selena soaring on the charts, but she continuously inspires young women everywhere to be authentic, give back and to not be afraid to use their voice…”
He went on to elaborate;
“She is never afraid to speak her mind and has used her platform to advocate for the needs of others. We are thrilled to be able to honor her as our Woman of the Year.”
