Cutie-pie Katy Perry will soon be picking up another prize.
Billboard announced today that the music superstar, who brightened up the red carpet today in a Randi Rahm strapless cocktail dress for the Japanese premiere of her film Part of Me, will accept its Woman of the Year Award at the 2012 Billboard Women in Music event taking place on Nov. 30 at Capitale in New York City.
The award honors the achievements of a "trailblazing female recording artist" over the past 12 months.
And Perry certainly qualified. Since the release of her first mainstream album, One of the Boys, in 2008, she has continued to top the Billboard charts. And she is the only woman to score five Hot 100 No. 1s from one album (Teenage Dream) in the chart's 54-year history.
The album spent more than 100 weeks on the Billboard 200 and has sold 2.5 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"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 in the announcement. Past Woman of the Year honorees have included BeyoncÃ©, Fergie and Taylor Swift.
