Why not Torr 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 70-year-old singer, as a 2018 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Torr 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 ‘Pertuis Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Pertuis (Michèle Torr'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:

“Michèle Torr Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 16 Dec 2017
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveMichèle”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 16 Dec 2017
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Michèle Torr?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 16 Dec 2017

Could 2018 officially be the Year of Michèle Torr?

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?
