Time Magazine Person of the Year Nominees
Time Magazine is set to announce it’s “Person of the Year” on Wednesday. A tradition that started in 1927. The person of the year is someone that the editors at the magazine deem to have had the most influence on the world that past year. They’ve listed the nine nominees for the 2023 honor. There is really only one choice to make out of these nine people they’ve nominated. Let’s take a look at the list.
The Hollywood strikers – No. Teachers striking has more impact on the world.
Chinese President Xi Jinping – Negative.
Open AI co-founder Sam Altman – Who?
King Charles III – His mother is still more impactful on the world than he is.
Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell – I don’t think so.
Barbie – Inspired a whole bunch of Halloween costumes, but not enough of an impact.
Vladimir Putin – Monsters shouldn’t be allowed on the list.
Trump prosecutors – Can they really be on here when nothing has concluded yet?
Taylor Swift – Ding ding. Taylor Swift was everywhere in 2023. You couldn’t not be aware of Taylor Swift. Her Eras Tour was such a massive success that they put it in movie theaters so people who weren’t able to purchase a ticket, because they were so expensive on the secondary market, could take their kids and not break the bank. She’s in the most high profile relationship since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Boomer dads who would tune into an NFL game to strictly watch football now are totally aware that she’s dating Travis Kelce. Throngs of Swifties are now NFL viewers because they tuned in to see her watching and rooting for her boyfriend. She’s was able to put out her old music, call it Taylor’s version and it skyrocketed up the charts.
There is one clear winner of Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year”, it’s Tay Tay. Anyone else would be a travesty.
