Ariana Grande has been named Woman of the Year for 2018 by the music publication and will be on hand to receive the honour in person during Billboard's annual Women in Music dinner and award gala in New York City next month on December 6.
Ross Scarano, Billboard's Vice President of Content, said in a statement: "Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry. 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."
And the 'No Tears Left to Cry' hitmaker couldn't be happier with the news, as she took to Twitter on Tuesday (06.11.18) to thank Billboard for the "honour".
In a brief tweet, she wrote: "thank u for this honor @billboard. (sic)"
