Taylor Swift Crowned Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in Spectacular 2023 Triumph
In a groundbreaking announcement live on TODAY on Dec. 6, pop sensation Taylor Swift was unveiled as Time magazine’s Person of the Year. At 33, Swift marks a historic achievement as the first entertainer to claim this prestigious title solo in the 96-year history of the award.
Swift’s remarkable year was highlighted by her record-breaking “Eras Tour,” hailed as the biggest concert movie of all time, and a high-profile romance with Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce.
Time’s editor-in-chief, Sam Jacobs, expressed the reasoning behind this exceptional choice of giving him the honor of Time Magazine Person of the Year 2023 , stating, “Taylor Swift found a way to transcend borders and be a source of light. No one else on the planet today can move so many people so well.”

In an exclusive interview with Time, Swift reflected on her historic 2023, a year that propelled her to billionaire status and made her the most-streamed artist on Spotify worldwide. She also delved into the beginnings of her relationship with Kelce, revealing that they had quietly started seeing each other well before the widely publicized Sept. 24 Chiefs-Bears game.
“By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple,” she disclosed in her Time interview.
Swift’s banner year commenced in March with the kickoff of her global “Eras Tour” in Arizona, resulting in sold-out shows, soaring ticket sales, and a substantial economic impact. Even Kelce flew to Argentina last month to witness her performance, culminating in a passionate on-stage kiss.
The “Eras Tour” concert movie, crafted from footage during the epic shows, has grossed over $250 million at the box office. Additionally, Swift reclaimed her title as the most-streamed artist on Spotify with the release of re-recorded versions of her “1989” and “Speak Now” albums.
Her influence extends beyond music, reaching into the box office and iconic landmarks like Rio’s Christ The Redeemer. The international leg of the “Eras Tour” is set to continue throughout the entirety of next year, concluding on Dec. 8, 2024, in Vancouver.
