NEW YORK — The year's not even over, but Billboard already knows who its woman of the year is – Beyonce (Bee-AHN'-say).

The superstar will be honored by the industry publication at its annual Women in Music event.

Past "Woman of the Year" honorees were Ciara (SEE-ehr-ah) and Reba McEntire.

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.
