All Hail The Queen: Madonna Is Billboard’s Woman of the Year

Madonna will receive Billboard’s 2016 Woman of the Year award at the 11th annual Billboard Women In Music event in New York City.

The Queen of Pop will bless us fellow commoners on Dec. 9 when she accepts the honor, which will air Dec. 12 on Lifetime.

“Madonna is one of a miniscule number of super-artists whose influence and career transcend music,” said Janice Min, president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. “With her creative vision, relentless innovation, and dedication to philanthropic causes, she is an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people around the world, all while shattering every career record out there. She is an important feminist on top of that, a one-of-a-kind artist who’s used her influence to change the conversation around women, sexuality and equal rights.”

Last year, Madonna extended her own record as the highest-grossing female touring artist of all time with the Rebel Heart Tour. Here’s some numbers jargon from Billboard:

Her Rebel Heart Tour, which wrapped in March, solidified her status as one of the biggest touring acts of all time. Madonna sold more than 1 million tickets and walked away with $170 million. That makes her the highest grossing solo touring artist in Billboard Boxscore history (the archives go back to 1990) with a staggering $1.31 billion in total concert grosses.

We should also make note of Madge’s philanthropic efforts with her Raising Malawi organization as well. She’s currently constructing Malawi’s first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit, The Mercy James Institute of Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care facility, and it’s scheduled to open next year.

Fantastic that she's still recognised as such an influential and powerful artist! I feel like this award hasn't just been given to her based on just her past glories either.
