Selena Gomez will be honored as “Billboard” Woman of the Year at the mag’s annual Women in Music dinner, to be held November 30th in Los Angeles.
“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,” John Amato, president of “The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard” Media Group, says. “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 singer responded to the honor on Twitter with a simple “thank you.”
