The princess of pop is adding another jewel to her crown!
Britney Spears is being honored with the first-ever Icon Award at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards, ET has learned.
The inaugural award, which "recognizes a distinguished artist whose career transcends popular culture and whose music is loved by generations of Radio Disney fans," will be presented to the multiplatinum pop star at the RDMAs on Saturday, April 29 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
"Having just celebrated 20 years of Radio Disney in 2016, we are excited to introduce the RDMA 'Icon' Award as special recognition of an artist whose music has been loved and adored by generations of Radio Disney fans. We are proud to celebrate Britney as the first recipient for this award acknowledging her chart-topping career on Radio Disney since 1998," Phil Guerini, Music Strategy VP of Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement on Wednesday.
We don’t know what outfit Spears will rock when she accepts her award, but we do know that she'll be looking fabulous in it, thanks to her intense workout routines she's been posting about lately!
Just last night, the 35-year-old Grammy winner posted a video to Instagram of herself and her personal trainer doing a set of side lunges with weights, an exercise she admits isn't her favorite. "Training keeps me motivated and inspired... but I'd rather be dancing," Spears captioned the video.
Fingers crossed she'll be dancing onstage at the Radio Disney Music Awards on April 29!
