Madonna To Be Honored By Billboard.

Madonna To Be Honored By Billboard.

This year at the 11th annual Billboard Women in Music event, Madonna will be receiving  Billboard’s 2016 Woman of the Year Award. BreatheHeavy reports that the Hollywood Reporter-Billboard media group president and chief officer Janice Min 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.”

This even will take place on December 9th and the ceremony will air live on Lifetime December 12.
