Lady Gaga Named Billboard Woman Of The Year

Congratulations Momma Monster!

Billboard has named Lady Gaga as their 2015 Woman of The Year.

Gaga will receive her award December 11 at Cipriani Midtown.  The ceremony will be broadcast a week later, December 18, on Lifetime.

"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," said Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media's entertainment group, which consists of Billboard and THR, to Billboard. "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."

Taylor Swift was the 2014 recipient of the award.
