Selena Gomez will be honored as the Woman of the Year at Billboard’s annual Women in Music dinner and awards gala on Nov. 30.
Selena has had quite the roller coaster ride into adulthood. The pop star’s personal and professional life continues to make headlines. In the last day alone, Selena gave an intimate interview on The Today Show where she opened up about her kidney transplant. Meanwhile, the singer was embroiled in Internet drama when paparazzi caught her hanging out with ex Justin Bieber. A day later, sources confirmed she and The Weeknd broke up. All of the buzz has never derailed Selena, and that is one of many reasons why she’ll accept the Woman of the Year award.
Others to have received the accolade includes Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Pink, Katy Perry, Fergie, Beyoncé and last year’s winner, Madonna.
