Originally posted by Billboard> Billboard's Woman of the Year has always represented the finest in music, and the anointing of a key influential figure who drove the conversation for that year. No one embodies that more than Lady Gaga in 2015. There is no woman dominating popular culture tastes and its evolution as much as she is today. What a force.
How is Rita Ora a lock in? I'd consider Azealia to be more of a lock in than Rita.
Lana is for sure. But no one else is quite a lock in like she is. It's still up in the air.
I think Lana has a worse chance than Rita, honestly. Rita has Roc Nation behind her and is something fresher for a pop market and caters to that market. She has a look MADE for pop music, and is the European Rihanna (Rihanna = Barbados, Rita = Yugoslavia). Lana has Interscope (who only really support Gaga, let's be honest). She also isn't meant to be a popstar. But who knows, maybe she can help reinvent the "image of pop."

It's true. Cyndi is a nobody outside of gay clubs in the US. Kylie is a global force known in gay clubs everywhere.
