Taylor Swift has been chosen as Time magazine’s Person of the Year for her incredible ability to use pop music to tell her story. This marks the first time a woman has appeared twice on the Person of the Year cover since the nominations began in 1927.
Swift has been recognized for her unique talent in finding and sharing her story through her music. The magazine praised her as an artist, businesswoman, and celebrity, comparing her to legendary figures such as Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Madonna. Her accomplishments are so vast that they almost seem beyond description.
In addition to her musical success, Swift has built a business empire worth over $1 billion and has commanded constant attention as a celebrity. She has been able to use her platform to bring joy and light to the world, according to Time’s editor-in-chief Sam Jacobs.
This year, Swift has achieved numerous successes, including record-setting streams for her re-recorded album Speak Now and a highly successful concert film. Her concert in Seattle even caused seismic activity, earning the nickname “Swift Quake.” She has also had a significant impact on the popularity of football after dating Kansas City Chief Travis Kelce.
Time’s tradition of dedicating an annual issue to a person, group, idea, or object that has influenced the events of the year has recognized Swift once again. In 2017, she was named Person of the Year as one of the Silence Breakers who inspired women to speak out about sexual misconduct.
Swift’s empowering feminist messages and openness about her emotions have resonated with fans. Her ability to create a narrative world through traditional and new media has set her apart as a unique and influential figure.
Previous selections for Time’s Person of the Year have included Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, Martin Luther King Jr, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Pope Francis, and activist Greta Thunberg.
Taylor Swift’s recognition as Time’s Person of the Year for 2022 is a testament to her incredible impact on the music industry, popular culture, and society as a whole.
