2023 has proven to be an accomplished year for Taylor Swift. The Midnights singer made headline after headline this year, whether it was from her brief affair with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce or her selection as TIME magazine’s Person of the Year. As New Year’s Eve approaches, let’s take a look back at some of Swift’s most memorable moments from this year:
Spotify’s Global Top Artist
In November, the 34-year-old pop sensation was named Spotify’s Global Top Artist. As the musician who was streamed the most on the platforms in 2023, Swift topped all charts. The Cruel Summer hitmaker rushed to social media shortly after the Spotify Wrapped Results were revealed to share her surprise and happiness at the same time.
“Um ok this is unreal?? I just wanted to say to anyone who listened to my music this year, anywhere in the world, thank you. Getting named Spotify’s Global Top Artist in 2023 is truly the best birthday/holiday gift you could’ve given me. We’ve seriously had THE MOST fun this year out there on tour and now this. Are you serious,” the artists tweeted on X.
TIME’s Person of 2023
In early December, TIME magazine named the Blank Space singer the Person of the Year for 2023, adding another accomplishment to her resume this year. Along with well-known international figures like King Charles III and Chinese President Xi Jinping, Swift was nominated for the esteemed accolade. After winning, she stated to the magazine, “This is the proudest and happiest I’ve ever felt, and the most creatively fulfilled and free I’ve ever been.”
Swift’s enormously popular Eras Tour concerts and the concert film that bears the same name helped her become a billionaire back in October. An astonishing $1.1 billion is thought to be her net worth. One of the few musicians to create a billion-dollar empire purely via music is the singer of Evermore.
Found love in Travis Kelce
In addition to her professional achievements, Swift has had a great year personally in 2023. The Karma singer’s somewhat well-known connection with Kelce has been one of the most talked-about subjects of the year. They had been dating for a while, even though it was only until Swift was seen supporting Kelce at a Kansas City Games with his mother, Donna, that people started to assume they were dating.
Mega box office feat
Swift’s live film, “Eras Tour,” came out as the 19th most successful film of 2023 back in November. The movie brought about $250 million at the box office worldwide on November 26. The movie brought around $100 million only from presale tickets. After experiencing unparalleled popularity, the movie became the highest-grossing concert film in history. In an effort to boost the movie’s popularity, Swift allowed fans to watch Eras Tour online from the comfort of their homes.
