Taylor Swift Enjoys a Phenomenal Year: Named Time’s ‘Person of the Year’

Swift is on a roll in 2023! Following the monumental success of her Eras Tour, the singer-songwriter has now been crowned Time Magazine’s ‘Person of the Year.’

In its annual tribute to influential figures, a tradition dating back almost a century, Time Magazine acclaimed Taylor Swift as a “rare person who is both the writer and hero of her own story.” This coveted designation places her among the ranks of previous recipients like Volodymyr Zelensky, Martin Luther King Jr., and Greta Thunberg.

Describing Swift’s impact across various spheres, Time Magazine acknowledged her cultural, critical, and commercial achievements as an artist. Swift’s multifaceted career as a pop star, businesswoman, and public figure under constant scrutiny was highlighted in the magazine’s coverage.

In her cover interview, the 33-year-old Swift shared the spotlight with her feline companion, Benjamin Button, who also received an honorable mention in her tweet expressing gratitude for being named Time’s 2023 Person of the Year. Despite an already illustrious career, 2023 has proven to be exceptionally successful for Swift, with her Eras Tour projected to generate an estimated $2 billion in revenue.

Swift’s empire, valued at around $1 billion by some estimates, attests to her unparalleled success. Time Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Sam Jacobs, noted, “Taylor Swift found a way to transcend borders and be a source of light. Much of what Swift accomplished in 2023 exists beyond measurement.”

By mapping her journey and sharing it with the world, Swift has committed to validating the dreams, feelings, and experiences of those who often feel overlooked and underestimated, particularly women.

Swift’s triumph as Time’s Person of the Year comes after competing with notable figures on the shortlist, including Chinese President Xi Jinping, Britain’s King Charles III, Barbie, and OpenAI’s Sam Altman (recognized as Time’s CEO of the Year).

Since 1927, TIME annually selects a Person of the Year, representing the editors’ evaluation of the individual who exerted the most significant influence on the headlines during the preceding 12 months, whether for better or for worse.
