TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Seems like a no-brainer.
- She was chosen over King Charles, Vladimir Putin, and Xi Jinping.
- Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was last year's Person of the Year.
Taylor Swift is Time magazine's Person of the Year.
Time Editor Sam Jacobs made the big reveal on the Today show this morning. He says, "In a year when the world is divided -- there's a lot of light and a lot of darkness, there are a number of different choices that could have represented 2023 but we picked someone who represents joy -- someone who's bringing light to the world -- someone who's taken her own story and has made it big enough for everyone, and I don't think there's anyone who moved so many people so well as Taylor Swift did in 2023." He added that in 2023, "She was like the weather. She was everywhere."
The issue features three different covers. All will hit newsstands on December 15th.
