Award for Katy Perry

Billboard named Katy Perry its woman of the year. ‘‘I felt like my year was last year. . . . I thought my moment had passed,’’ Perry said in an interview with Jon Stewart at Billboard’s Women in Music event Friday in New York City. Perry released ‘‘Teenage Dream’’ in 2010, and the album sparked five No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart that spilled over to 2011. She tied the record Michael Jackson set with ‘‘Thriller’’ for most hits from a single album. She re-released the album this year, which launched two more hits and a top-grossing 3-D film. (AP)
