Pink - Pink Is Billboard's Woman Of The Year

Pop star Pink has been named Billboard magazine's Woman of the Year.

The singer will accept the accolade at the upcoming 2013 Billboard Women in Music event in New York City in December (13).

Pink has been chosen for the honour after scoring her fourth U.S. number one single with her track Just Give Me a Reason earlier this year (13), and she also landed her first album chart-topper Stateside with The Truth About Love.

She says in a statement, "I was absolutely shocked and surprised to hear that Billboard named me Woman of the Year. It's been an incredible year and I feel so grateful."

Billboard's Editorial Director, Bill Werde, adds, "Pink has almost been in a class by herself among women in music this year, and we're thrilled to recognise her successes by honouring her with the Billboard Woman of the Year Award. When our 2013 mid-year numbers were released, she had the top-selling album and song for a woman, and a blockbuster, sold-out, international arena tour. Earlier this year, Just Give Me a Reason, topped the Billboard Hot 100, extending her amazingly consistent chart success which dates back to her arrival in 2000. Combine all of this with a spirit that inspires fans of every stripe, and you arrive at the remarkable package that is Pink. She will undoubtedly continue to accomplish great milestones in the years to come."

Pink will be handed her trophy at the ceremony on 10 December (13). Previous recipients include Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.
