Ariana Grande Named Billboard's 2018 Woman Of The Year

This year, Ariana Grande
will be honored as Billboard’s Woman of The Year for her contributions
as a singer, songwriter and activist. Her honor will arrive at the 13th
annual Women in Music awards gala in New York on December 6th as she
joins a group of past honorees that include Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, and Madonna.

“Ariana
Grande is a star on her own terms, never bending to any particular
musical trend or path in the industry,” says Ross Scarano, Billboard’s
vp of content. “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.”

This year, Ariana’s fourth album Sweetener
went No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, marking the third time
that she’s done so, also earning her the largest streaming week of all
time for a pop album by a female artist. She’s also being recognized for
her involvement in the March For Our Lives initiative, advocating for
better gun control legislation, mental health awareness, gender
equality, Black Lives Matter, and LGBTQ rights. She is also credited
with helping raise $23 million to help victims and families affected by
the Manchester Arena bombing at her concert last year with the One Love
Manchester benefit concert.
