Cardi B has been named the recipient of the 2020 Billboard Woman of the Year.
She will be feted alongside Dolly Parton, Dua Lipa, and Jennifer Lopez at the 15th annual Women in Music celebration on December 10th.
Some fans trashed Cardi for receiving the honor, because they believed Megan Thee Stallion was a more worthy recipient.
Cardi took to IG with no makeup and did not take the insults lightly in a post, where she defended her honor.
Just days after landing an Icon honor at the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday, J.Lo will be feted with another Icon prize by Billboard as part of the virtual event, hosted by Teyana Taylor.
Previous Icons have been awarded to Alanis Morissette, Aretha Franklin, and Shania Twain.
Dua Lipa will be handed the Powerhouse Award and Dolly will take home this year’s Hitmaker Award.
Chloe x Halle and Jessie Reyez will also be honored during the show, which will air at https://billboardwomeninmusic.com/ from 8pm ET on 10 December.
