Billboard names Lady Gaga “Woman Of the Year”
Billboard and TV network Lifetime have named Lady Gaga as their ‘Woman Of the Year’.
Gaga, who is expected to release her 5th studio album next year, has sold 28 million albums around the world has 6 Grammy Awards under her belt, although this year she has spent a lot of time working as an actress in the FX series “American Horror Story: Hotel” (expected to debut October 7th).
“Billboard’s Woman of the Year has always represented the finest in music, and the anointing of a key influential figure who drove the conversation for that year. No one embodies that more than Lady Gaga in 2015,” says Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media’s entertainment group, which consists of Billboard and THR. “From her show-stopping performance at the Oscars, to her co-headlining tour, to her philanthropic outreach and foundation promoting youth wellbeing and empowerment, to her new role as TV star, there is no woman dominating popular culture tastes and its evolution as much as she is today. What a force.”
Lifetime will televise the “Billboard” special award ceremony in December.
