Madonna Is Billboard’s Woman Of The Year
Billboard has named its Woman of the Year: Madonna.
Madonna receives this honor as she breaks a few records: With the Rebel Heart tour, she extended her record as the highest-ever grossing female touring artist. She is also the highest grossing solo touring artist in Billboard Boxscore history, which dates back to 1990, with $1.31 in total concert grosses.
Billboard also recognizes Madonna for being a “one-of-a-kind artist who’s used her influence to change the conversation around women, sexuality and equal rights,” says Janice Min, president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group.
Madonna will receive her award at Billboard‘s 11th Women in Music event, which takes place December 9 in New York City and airs December 12 on Lifetime.
