DHAKA: Pop singer Pink has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year after scoring her first ever No. 1 album this year.
The music industry trade magazine said on Monday, The Straits Times publishes this report on Tuesday.
Pink, 34, who emerged on the pop scene in 2000 as a self-styled antidote to the girl-next-door image presented by young pop singers Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, released her sixth album ‘The Truth About Love’ last September.
The Grammy-winning singer, whose real name is Alecia Moore, scored hits in the past year with ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’, ‘Try’, and ‘Just Give Me A Reason’, a duet with Nate Ruess of rock band Fun that topped the Billboard Hot 100 song chart.
‘It’s been an incredible year and I feel so grateful to radio for sticking by me, and to the fans and friends and all of the incredible talent that I was fortunate enough to work with for this album,’ Pink said in a statement.
