Fergie named woman of the year

Fergie has been named Billboard's Woman Of The Year

Fergie has been crowned Woman Of The Year by a US magazine.

Fergie will be given the Billboard magazine honour on December 2 at a ceremony in New York.

The only female member of the Black Eyed Peas said she was "humbled" to accept the award and called it a "great career achievement".

The honour pays tribute to a trailblazing female artist and her accomplishments.

Though Fergie's only solo album was 2006's multi-platinum The Dutchess, she has continued to sell out venues and score hits with the Black Eyed Peas.

They have a new CD, The Beginning, out next month.

Previous Billboard Woman Of The Year honourees include Beyonce, Ciara and Reba McEntire.

Getting handsomely rewarded for your communication skills will be gratifying. When one door closes, another will usually open.More
