Katy Perry named Billboard’s Woman of the Year


 Pop star Katy Perry was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year on Tuesday, after a whirlwind 12 months in which she split up with her husband and turned their break-up into a hit single and film. 

The singer has won over a legion of fans, known as ‘katycats,’ on Twitter and Facebook with her quirky costumes and catchy bubble gum pop songs. 


Forbes placed Perry at No. 3 on their highest-earning female musicians list in December 2011, estimating her pre-tax earnings at $44 million. 


She has sold 48 million tracks in the United States alone, according to Billboard, including the hits “Firework,” “California Gurls,” “E.T.” and “Hot N Cold” from her major-label 2008 debut “One Of The Boys” and 2010 album “Teenage Dream.” 


Perry has become a branding machine, lending her name to her own fragrance, nail polish and false eyelash 

lines. She is also the face of skin care line Proactiv and Popchips snacks. 


Billboard’s editorial director Bill Werde said in a statement that Perry was chosen for her achievements, calling her “one of the most exciting and inspiring artists in the industry.” 


“Katy Perry broke into the industry not even five years ago, and has already accomplished more than most artists can hope for in an entire career,” Werde said. 


The Billboard Woman of the Year award selects a female artist with trailblazing achievements. Previous recipients include Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie. 


Perry will receive the award at the 2012 Billboard Women in Music event in New York on November 30.

  1. I just want to tell you that I’m newbie to blogging and truly liked this web site. Probably I’m want to bookmark your blog post . You amazingly have fabulous posts. Regards for sharing your web site.

  2. Good post. I study something more difficult on completely different blogs everyday. It is going to at all times be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and apply just a little one thing from their store. I’d want to use some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thank you that is really valuable for me, as a new site has been inundated with comments that seem OK at very first glance but then get repeated with a slight change of wording. I have something concrete to go on now and will delete quite a great deal of them.

  4. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

  6. I would like to express my gratitude for your kind-heartedness in support of persons who must have help on that field. Your special commitment to getting the solution all around appeared to be extraordinarily useful and has really encouraged somebody just like me to arrive at their pursuits. This useful guide indicates a lot a person like me and especially to my mates. Many thanks; from each one of us.

  7. I’ve learned many important things as a result of your post. I would also like to convey that there may be a situation where you will obtain a loan and do not need a cosigner such as a Federal government Student Support Loan. But when you are getting a loan through a classic financier then you need to be prepared to have a co-signer ready to allow you to. The lenders are going to base their very own decision on a few aspects but the most significant will be your credit ratings. There are some creditors that will furthermore look at your work history and choose based on this but in almost all cases it will be based on on your report.

  8. I am new to developing sites and I was wanting to know if having your site title related to your content really that vital? I see your title, “Katy Perry named Billboard’s Woman of the Year Welcome ladies &Gents to FaithOnavba Blog ” does appear to be spot on with what your blog is about but, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
