It was nothing less than “The great war” for Taylor Swift’s Singapore concert tickets, with people starting queuing at various SingPost outlets 2 days before the sale officially started. Tickets were sold out within 8 hours. Those Swifties who were lucky enough to get one, can be even more excited and proud now as Taylor Swift is Time’s Person of the Year!

Taylor Swift has been named TIME’s 2023 Person of the Year, making second appearance on a Person of the Year cover since the franchise’s inception in 1927. Swift, who had previously been honored as one of the “Silence Breakers” in 2017, joins the list of several U.S. presidents and world leaders as a repeat designee.

Swift, at 33, boasts an unparalleled litany of records and honors, culminating in a smashing Eras tour and hitting billionaire status. In the interview with TIME where she expressed being the “proudest and happiest she’s ever felt,” Swift, recognized for spinning her story into a global legend, credited her recent creative freedom for her success.

Swift’s undeniable impact is reflected in societal shifts; her romance with NFL star Travis Kelce spurred millions of her followers into football fandom, while her call to voting action triggered thousands to register. However, beyond her stardom, it is her personal touch with fans that resonates most, encapsulated in her sentiment about holding up a mirror to her life to help others better see themselves.

Swift’s authentic self-expression and triumphant creative journey were showcased in not one, but three unique covers of TIME magazine. In a display of her candid nature, one cover starred the pop superstar with her beloved cat Benjamin Button, revealing the intimate bond between the artist and her pet.
