Katy Perry has been crowned Elle magazine's Woman of the Year. The pop star was honored at the Elle Style Awards in London. According to the magazine, the award 'tops off a spectacular 12 months for the singer' following her chart-topping album, Prism, and hit single Roar, which has so far sold more than eight million copies worldwide.
Also earning her high marks, the fact that the chart-topper and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador is known to make fun of herself. "Elle" notes, "She also shows that you don't have to conform, that a sense of humor is sexy...and that you can support, rather than compete, with your contemporaries ' she loves, and supports, women."
