Taylor Swift has been named Billboard's woman of decade, BBC reported.
"Women in music are not allowed to coast," she observed. "We are held at a higher, sometimes impossible-feeling, standard. I’ve seen a lot.”
The star also took first place in the Forbes ranking as the highest paid musician in the world.
Billboard magazine also announced Woman of the Year - 17-year-old singer Billie Eilish. She admitted that she felt weird because she received an award at such an early age, and added that other women in the industry helped her.
