Chantal Goya among finalists for TIME’s 2020 Person of the Year?

Why not Goya for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 77-year-old singer, as a 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Goya so important is the potential and influence she now has, rather than anything she has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the singer have already been named ‘French Of The Year’ by some major French newspapers and even ‘Saigon Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Saigon (Chantal Goya's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the singer was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Chantal Goya Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 15 Dec 2019
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveChantal”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 15 Dec 2019
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Chantal Goya?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 15 Dec 2019

Could 2020 officially be the Year of Chantal Goya?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2020 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2020?
