'Are You Not Entertained?' Taylor Swift Named Time Person Of The Year

New York, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 7th Dec, 2023) With a prolific musical output, a remarkably bankable tour and a name that's headline catnip, it's no surprise that Time Magazine has declared 2023 the Year of Taylor Swift.
In its annual issue honoring a Person of the Year -- a nearly century-old designation whose recipients include Volodymyr Zelensky, Martin Luther King Jr. and Greta Thunberg -- the magazine called music's reigning deity a "rare person who is both the writer and hero of her own story."
Nearly two decades into her career the 33-year-old's star simply keeps rising: Swift is smashing industry records, and her conversation-commanding "Eras" tour is set to bring in an estimated $2 billion in revenue -- and become the first tour to cross the symbolic $1-billion mark.
"Taylor Swift found a way to transcend borders and be a source of light," Time editor-in-chief Sam Jacobs wrote in a statement. "Much of what Swift accomplished in 2023 exists beyond measurement."
"She mapped her journey and shared the results with the world: she committed to validating the dreams, feelings and experiences of people, especially women, who felt overlooked and regularly underestimated."
