The year's not even over, but Billboard already knows who its woman of the year is — Beyonce.
The superstar will be honored by the industry publication at its annual Women in Music event.
Beyonce will be on hand to accept her award at the Oct. 2 event in New York City.
It's been yet another big year for the entertainer. She had the smash hit "Single Ladies," sang at President Obama's inauguration, had a No. 1 movie with "Obsessed" and embarked on an arena tour.
