Billboard magazine named ''Woman of the Year''

Shakira, a 46-year-old pop legend, has been named Woman of the Year by Billboard, the world's most prestigious music magazine. The singer will receive the award at the Latin Women in Music event, which will be the first event in the magazine's history to honour Latin artists for their contribution to the music industry. The event is scheduled for May 7.

According to Billboard, Shakira has sold 95 million records, making her the best-selling musician of all time and the most sought-after Latin artist. The singer began building her career at the age of 13 and has achieved unprecedented success and recognition since then.

Thus, the singer of the hits Whenever Wherever, Loca and others boasts 10 Grammy Awards. She has released 11 studio albums in more than 30 years of her career.

Billboard Latin Español's Chief Content Officer spoke about the main achievement for which the pop diva was awarded the Woman of the Year status: "Shakira is the epitome of a Woman in Music. Thanks to her, Latin women all over the world have the opportunity to write and perform deeply personal music. She has created her own movement and still remains as relevant as ever in our time with grace, deep commitment and immense talent. She is the definition of a Woman in Music."


Over the past year, Shakira has gone through a personal drama in front of the whole world - she broke up with the famous footballer Gerard Pique after 11 years of marriage. They have two sons together, but the couple was not officially married. The athlete betrayed the beauty, which was a big blow to her, but the singer did not break down and once again became an example for a multimillion-dollar army of fans.


After a painful breakup, Shakira wrote a diss on her ex called 53. This track in Spanish was the first to reach the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100, which was another achievement for the star.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that American plus-size model Ashley Graham, 35, graced the cover of the new issue of Maxim men's magazine and topped the list of the world's sexiest women in 2023. The celebrity has overtaken such famous beauties as Bella Hadid, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, etc. She is not afraid to show her "honest" photos without Photoshop and is a mother of three.
