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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
