Taylor Swift is shaking it off right to the top, because she has been named the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year! Taylor is the first artist to ever receive the honor twice.
T-Swift previously took the title in 2011 and it looks like her new outlook on life has brought back the honor to her this year. Billboard's Woman of the Year award celebrates a female artist who "has shaped and inspired the music industry with her success, leadership and innovation over the past twelve months."
"As one of the most influential artists of her generation, Taylor Swift has seen incredible success on the Billboard charts,” said Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media's Entertainment Group. "Over the course of her career, she’s charted 60 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 -- the most of any female artist since her debut in 2006. We are tremendously excited to be honoring her as the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year for the second time."
Taylor will be honored in New York City at the 9th annual Women in Music Awards on December 12th.
Congratulations to Taylor!
