Singer, actress and former Disney child star Selena Gomez will be joining celebrities like Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Pink, Katy Perry, Fergie, Beyoncé and Madonna in the honour roll of Billboard’s Women of The Year.
John Amato, president of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group, made the announcement on Tuesday stating that she was chosen because she continuously lives an inspirational life to young girls.
“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.”
“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,” the statement said.
The singer will receive her award on November 30, during the Women n Music dinner at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood.
