Ariana Grande Named Billboard's 2018 Woman of the Year

Ariana Grande has had a year of highs and lows, but she will be capping it of with a well-deserved honor being Billboard’s 2018 Woman of the Year.

She follows the likes of Madonna, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.

According to Billboard she was chosen because: "Ariana Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular musical trend or path in the industry. Certain in her convictions, she consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn’t hospitable to that sort of strength in young women. She’s got guts, she’s making some of the best music of her career, and she’s absolutely deserving of Woman of the Year."

Ariana will receive the award at Billboard’s Women in Music event, which will air live on Twitter December 6th.
