Katy Perry has been honoured as Billboard magazine's Woman of the Year in light of her incredible achievements over the last 12 months.
The 'Wide Awake' singer has had a turbulent year which saw her complete a world tour, debut her movie Katy Perry: Part Of Me, and divorce comedian Russell Brand after just a year of marriage.
According to Billboard magazine, Katy has achieved more than some of the world's biggest artists could hope for in an entire career.
"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," the publication's editorial director Bill Werde said in a statement after describing Katy as "one of the most exciting and inspiring artists in the industry."
At the age of 27, Katy has sold 48 million songs in the US alone and was placed at number three on Forbes' highest-earning female musicians list in 2011.
Katy is expected to receive her latest honour at the 2012 Billboard Women In Music event in New York on November 30.
