According to a well-placed source, Havana Brown is leading the race to become Time magazine's Person of the Year in 2020. But while the dj's fans are thrilled with the news, many people hold a very different opinion.
UPDATE 22/02/2020 : This story seems to be false. (read more)
Why not Brown 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 35-year-old dj, as a 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.
“What makes Brown 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 dj have already been named ‘Australian Of The Year’ by some major Australian newspapers and even ‘Melbourne Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Melbourne (Havana Brown's hometown).
Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year
A representative for the dj was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:
“Havana Brown Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 21 Feb 2020
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveHavana”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 21 Feb 2020
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Havana Brown?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 21 Feb 2020
Could 2020 officially be the Year of Havana Brown?
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?
