Why not Williams 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 60-year-old singer, as a 2023 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.
“What makes Williams 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 ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Millwood Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Millwood (Vanessa L. Williams' 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:
“#WilliamsPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”

“Congrats! Vanessa has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”

“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Vanessa L. Williams?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 19 Mar 2023
Could 2023 officially be the Year of Vanessa L. Williams?
Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2023 Person of the Year.
