Woman of the Year for 2017 – Selena Gomez

Billboard has announced the winner of its prized Women of the Year Award goes to Selena Gomez.

Selena was chosen because she continuously inspires young women everywhere to be authentic, give back and to not be afraid to use their voice.

Selena was delighted with the award, and publically thanked Billboard on Twitter.

Unhappy Music Lovers

However, not all music fans agree with the award.

Many believe Ariana Grande should have received the award after she put on the One Love benefit concert. The concert was a demonstration of hope and solidarity after a terrorist attack on an early concert of hers in Manchester, UK. The concert raised $13m for the victims and their families.

No one can doubt Ariana’s generosity and courage, performing for free in the same place so many lives were ruined, but Selena deserves the award too.

She will be joining previous winners such as, Beyoncé, Pink, Madonna, and Lady Gaga.

Selena is the most followed person on Instagram and has had three smash hits this year alone.

She has also produced her own Netflix drama and is an ambassador for Coach and Puma.

Actress and Pop Star

Apart from her romance with male pop icon, Justin Bieber, Selena has had a long and interesting career.

She starred in the childrens television series Barney & Friends, and then rose to fame as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

With a whole lot of other movie and television appearances, as well as, a strong pop career is it any wonder why she got the award?
