Taylor Swift chosen as Time Person of the Year

The Time magazine on Wednesday picked singer-songwriter Taylor Swift as its Person of the Year for 2023. Time cited her impact on pop culture this year, from her record-breaking album Midnights, released in late 2022 to her ongoing Eras tour, to her social media presence. Swift beat out Person of the Year candidates including Chinese President Xi Jinping, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

According to Time, Swift is "the last monoculture left in our stratified world," with "at least 10 college classes devoted to her, including one at Harvard." Her Eras tour is expected to be the first ever to gross over $1 billion, spanning 151 shows across five continents. In 2019, she became the world's highest-grossing female artist, with an estimated net worth of $1.1 billion. She was also Spotify's most-streamed female performer in 2022 and 2023.
