    Katy Perry has been chosen as Billboard's 2012 Woman of the Year. Congrats.

    She will pick up her Woman of the Year Award at the 2012 Billboard Women in Music event, which takes place on Friday, November 30, 2012 at Capitale in New York City.

    The award honors the achievements of a trailblazing female recording artist over the past 12 months, and acknowledges her overall success in the music business and her leadership in embracing the changing 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," said Bill Werde, Billboard's editorial director. "We are thrilled to celebrate these incredible achievements and her amazing past 12 months by honoring her with the Billboard Woman of the Year Award. With what seems like a never-ending supply of record-breaking, chart-topping hits, coupled with her unique and fresh style, Katy Perry is hands-down one of the most exciting and inspiring artists in the industry today."

    And there you have it.

    The Billboard Women in Music event celebrates the most powerful and talented women in music, and past Woman of the Year honorees have included Beyoncé, Fergie and Taylor Swift.

    What is your favorite Katy Perry song? Do you think she deserves this honor and then some?
