Why not Wahlberg 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 54-year-old singer, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Wahlberg 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 ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Dorchester Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Dorchester (Donnie Wahlberg'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:

“Donnie Wahlberg Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 20 Jun 2024
“Congrats! Donnie has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 20 Jun 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Donnie Wahlberg?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 20 Jun 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Donnie Wahlberg?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2024 Person of the Year.
