Lady Gaga is known for many things, but now she's also a Woman of the Year—which should come as no surprise to her devoted fans.

Billboard announced today the pop icon will be honored during its annual Women in Music event, which will air for the first time on Lifetime in December. The magazine said Gaga was chosen for her unparalleled contributions to entertainment, pointing out her six Grammy awards and countless other milestones within the music industry as major determining factors.

The singer-songwriter shared her gratitude on Twitter, writing, "I can't believe @billboard named me Woman of the year thank you so much. I am so so so so grateful. My gosh good morning!"

In recent weeks, Gaga has addressed the issue of sexual assault, releasing an emotionally poignant ballad called "'Till It Happens to You," and will donate a part of the song's proceeds to organizations helping survivors.

The 29-year-old will also make her acting debut on the highly anticipated upcoming season of American Horror Story: Hotel

With this award, Gaga now joins an elite club of fellow honorees including Taylor SwiftPink, Katy Perry and Beyoncé. Congratulations, Gaga!
