American singer, Taylor Swift has been named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year.
This makes her the first woman to appear twice on Time Magazine’s Person of the Year cover. Swift was also named Person of the Year in 2017, when she was recognized as one of the Silence Breakers who inspired women to speak out about sexual misconduct.
Swift is the first person to be selected because of her achievement in the arts, and is only the fourth individual selection who was born in the last 50 years.
The 33-year-old pop star beat King Charles, Sam Altman, the prosecutors who accused Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Barbie, Xi Jinping, the Hollywood workers on strike, Carlos III and Jerome Powell for the honour.
As the first woman to be recognized more than once, she joins a small group of repeat designees, alongside several U.S. presidents and world leaders.
The TIME franchise, began nearly a century ago as a way to capture the year through the individual, group, or concept that has had the most influence on the world in the previous 12 months whether in the positive or negative.
