Garbage star Shirley Manson will receive the Icon Award at the upcoming V05 NME Music Awards. The event is set to take place at London's O2 Academy Brixton on February 14 and Manson said she's surprised and thrilled with the honor.

"I am quite shocked but delighted to be recognised by NME with this award," said Manson. "I read it religiously as a young teen and well into adulthood, back when it was still a broadsheet, learning so much between its pages about music and the trailblazing artists who filled its pages."

She adds:

"I will always be grateful for their support in being one of the first British publications to help break Garbage back in 1995 and I still use the website as an excellent resource for discovering new talent. So yeah…. I'm pretty chuffed about it."
