Taylor Swift is the Woman of the Year! Well, At Least According to Billboard
Looks like Taylor Swift can add another award to her probs-already-overflowing trophy case. Since TayTay had such a whirlwind year — and currently holds the records for Fastest Selling Digital Album (Female) and Most Simultaneous US Hot 100 Hits (Female) — she’s been chosen to receive one of the highest honors Billboard can dish out: The Woman of the Year Award! That’s right, at the 2011 Billboard Women in Music event, which will be held on December 2, Taylor will accept the award, like Fergie did last year and Beyonce did the year before!
According to Billboard,
“[Taylor’s] the youngest artist to ever receive the honor, and it comes on the heels of earning several 2011 Billboard Music Awards, among them Top Country Album for the five-time platinum selling Speak Now.”
Do you think Taylor deserves the award? Or should someone else have taken it — Katy Perry, perhaps? To “speak now,” leave your comments below!
