Billboard name Madonna ‘Woman of the Year’

December 11, 2016

This past Friday (Dec 9) Billboard presented Madonna with their Annual “Woman of the Year” award.


“The biggest accomplishment I think was finishing my tour, doing my shows every night. And dealing with the challenges of being a mother. That’s always the challenge for me. Being a good mother, being an artist, getting through it all,” Madonna told reporters on the New York red carpet.

Madonna, 58, has four children, and in March completed her 82-show “Rebel Heart” world tour while in a legal battle over the custody of her 16 year-old son Rocco with ex-husband Guy Ritchie.

Rocco left Madonna during the tour to live with Ritchie in London. The dispute was settled in September.


The annual Billboard Women in Music awards recognize women who have made significant contributions to the music business and who have inspired other women.

Other 2016 Billboard honourees include: Kesha, Shania Twain, jazz singer Andra Day, Meghan Trainor, electro-pop artist Halsey and country singer Maren Morris.
