Top award is Grande for Ariana
SINGER Ariana Grande has been named 2018 Woman Of The Year by Billboard.
Ariana, 25, will receive the award at their 13th annual Women in Music event on December 6 in New York City.
Previous recipients include Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Selena Gomez.
In a statement Billboard’s Ross Scarano said Ariana ( below) “consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn’t hospitable to that sort of strength in young women”.
In the past year, Ariana has had Top 40 hits including No Tears Left To Cry, Breathin’ and God Is A Woman.
She helped organise the One Love concert last year, raising more than £17.5million for victims of the Manchester bombing.
