The 58-year-old singer will be the guest of honor at the 11th annual Billboard Women in Music event held in New York this December, according to reports!

Artists who have received the award in the past include Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Katy Perry.

According to Billboard:

“Madonna is one of a minuscule number of super-artists whose influence and career transcend music. With her creative vision, relentless innovation, and dedication to philanthropic causes, she is an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people around the world, all while shattering every career record out there.

She is an important feminist on top of that, a one-of-a-kind artist who’s used her influence to change the conversation around women, sexuality and equal rights.”

Congratulations, Madonna!
