It's not easy being a lady in show business -- just ask Ciara, who has just been named Woman of the Year by music industry bible, Billboard.

With all the glamor, excitement (and money!) that comes with being a star, there's a whole lot of attention that might not always be welcome... especially if you're going through a divorce, like Madonna.

But today Ciara told OK! that she thinks the Material Girl is tough enough to survive the ordeal under the public's gaze.

"She's a megastar, and that goes with the territory," she at the magazine's third annual Women in Music Awards ceremony in New York on Oct. 23.

"But she's definitely put her foot down as a woman over the years and she's proven to be one of the best to me. She'll make it through -- she's been doing this for a long time," she said.

At the same ceremony, Billboard presented Debbie Harry with their Icon Award and Colbie Caillat with the Rising Star Award.
