Taylor Swift Named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2023
Time magazine declared Swift as its Person of the Year on Wednesday, following Spotify’s announcement just a week prior, where she was unveiled as the most-played artist on the streaming platform.
The pop icon’s recognition as Time magazine’s Person of the Year was revealed live on December 6. This accolade adds to Swift’s list of achievements at the age of 33, a year marked by her immensely successful “Eras Tour,” the release of the largest-ever concert movie, and a widely covered romantic involvement with Kansas City Chiefs’ star Travis Kelce.
“While her popularity has grown across the decades, this is the year that Swift, 33, achieved a kind of nuclear fusion: shooting art and commerce together to release an energy of historic force,” Time said about her selection.
“No one else on the planet today can move so many people so well,” Time said in its profile. “Achieving this feat is something we often chalk up to the alignments of planets and fates, but giving too much credit to the stars ignores her skill and her power.”
As part of Swift’s incredible year, her “Eras Tour” amassed approximately .2 billion solely from North American ticket sales, as per research firm QuestionPro. on last Wednesday, StubHub unveiled its 2023 “Year in Live Experiences” report, confirming that the “Eras Tour” stood as StubHub’s most significant tour in the website’s history.
During its debut weekend, her concert film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” garnered around a million at the box office in the United States and Canada. This achievement marked it as the highest-earning concert film for an opening weekend domestically, according to AMC.
Amidst these accomplishments, Swift surpassed her own Spotify record by becoming the most-streamed artist in a single day in the platform’s history. Additionally, “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” claimed the title of Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day this year.
