Robert: Ariana Grande named “Woman of the Year”
Billboard has named Ariana Grande its 2018 Woman of the Year.
In a statement, Billboard’s VP of Content Ross Scarano said the 25 year old pop singer “consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn’t hospitable to that sort of strength in young women.”
Grande will receive the award at their 13th annual Women in Music event on December 6. Previous recipients include the likes of Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Selena Gomez.
