Fergie named 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.
