Selena Gomez named Billboard’s Woman of the Year


Former Disney Channel star and current pop sensation, Selena Gomez has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year.

In a sizzling new photoshoot to celebrate the accolade, Gomez is seen sporting a black tuxedo jumpsuit by Mulger.

The official Instagram profile of the entertainment brand posted a photo from the shoot and captioned it as, “Woman crush of the year. #womeninmusic.”

While Billboard had made the announcement back in October, she is now set to be honoured at the annual Women in Music gala taking place on November 30.

While talking about Selena’s credentials, John Amato, president of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group said, “Not only is Selena soaring on the charts, but she continuously inspires young women everywhere to be authentic, give back and to not be afraid to use their voice. She is never afraid to speak her mind and has used her platform to advocate for the needs of others. We are thrilled to be able to honour her as our Woman of the Year.”

The 25-year-old will join an all-star cast of the

previous Woman of the Year honourees including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Pink, Katy Perry, Fergie, Beyoncé and last year’s winner, Madonna.
