Aside from having some incredible music drop this year, she underwent a kidney transplant. She is an incredible role model to her young fans for the strength she has shown.

John Amato, president of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group, spoke about the “Bad Liar” singer receiving the award.

“Not only is Selena soaring on the charts, but she continuously inspires young women everywhere to be authentic, give back and to not be afraid to use their voice. She is never afraid to speak her mind and has used her platform to advocate for the needs of others. We are thrilled to be able to honor her as our Woman of the Year.”
