NEW YORK — Lady Gaga is the woman of the year, according to Billboard magazine.

Billboard announced Tuesday that the pop star will be honored at its Dec. 11 Women in Music event in New York City. The decade-old event will be televised for the first time, on Lifetime on Dec. 18.

Gaga released the collaborative jazz album, “Cheek to Cheek,” with Tony Bennett last year. It won a Grammy Award, and the duo performed songs from the album on a 36-date tour. Gaga also plans to release an album next year and will star in FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel,” which premieres on Oct. 7.

The Women in Music event also honors the year’s 50 most powerful female executives in the music industry.
