10 Biggest Takeaways From Taylor Swift’s TIME Person of the Year Interview

Taylor Swift is closing out 2023 on a high note, becoming the first entertainer to ever earn TIME‘s prestigious Person of the Year title on Wednesday (Dec. 6).

The news broke exactly a week prior to the pop star’s 34th birthday, with Swift gracing three unique global covers of the magazine and sitting for a rare confessional interview spanning her life, career and numerous accolades over the years. In 2023 alone, the pop star scored two new No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, released two Taylor’s Version rerecords — Speak Now and 1989, both of which topped the Billboard 200 — launched her enormously successful Eras Tour, premiered her record-breaking concert film in theaters and picked up six Grammy nominations.

She also closed out the year with an estimated net worth of $1.1 billion, with Forbes projecting that Swift has accumulated $500 million from royalties and touring, $500 million from her music catalog and some $125 million in real estate. She’s also 2023’s top global artist for both Spotify and Apple Music, as well as Billboard‘s Top Artist of the year.

But on a social level, the “Anti-Hero” singer is arguably the most popular she’s ever been. Her high profile romance with Travis Kelce has propelled her cultural exposure into unprecedented heights, and she counts A-listers such as Beyoncé, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Sophie Turner, Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez and more as both friends and fans. (Just look at the star-studded turnout she’s seen at her Eras shows alone!)

And in her interview with TIME, Swift was candid about it all — the success she’s amassed in 2023 as well as the many highs and lows of previous years that led up to it. Keep reading to see the biggest takeaways in the profile, from going public with her romance to feuding with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Scooter Braun and more.
