Why not Annegarn 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 66-year-old singer, as a 2018 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Annegarn so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the singer have already been named ‘Dutch Of The Year’ by some major Dutch newspapers and even ‘The Hague Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in The Hague (Dick Annegarn'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:

“Dick Annegarn Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 19 Jul 2018
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveDick”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 19 Jul 2018
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Dick Annegarn?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 19 Jul 2018

Could 2018 officially be the Year of Dick Annegarn?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2018 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2018?
