The artist formerly known as Hannah Montana got tongues wagging—beyond her own—with a scantily clad, twerk-filled performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards and meme-able hit videos.Coming in second behind Miley is Hindu nationalist Narendra Modi, the prime ministerial candidate for India’s main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party. He currently has 12.1% of the votes. And then in third, with 9.4% of the votes is NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Okay so lets get over the initial shock of this possibly being on the cover and get down to brass text. Regardless of what you THINK of her actions this year, she has 'achieved' a lot. As a young artist, she has been talked about non-stop pretty much all year long. And TIME does define their person of the year as
"The person who most influenced the news each year, for better or worse"Okay, so technically since she has been in the news non-stop, she qualifies. But influenced? Maybe that's a poor choice in words, or I'm simply thinking of it too literally. Influenced, by definition, means 'the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone or something, or the effect itself.' Now regardless of the fact that we've all been TALKING about Miley, has she really influenced anything? Asides from making 'twerking' a new fad? Personally, I don't think so. And largely this is based on who TIME has chosen in the past as the year's 'influencer.' The 2012 person of the year was Barack Obama. Now regardless of your political views and personal feelings towards him as a leader, there is no doubt that he has influenced the news. The things he has done and said have had a dramatic effect on things larger than himself (and so they should...he is the president after all). Other nominees that year included Malala Yousafzai, a 17-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban and has gone on to become an advocate for securing Pakistani girls’ access to education. In 2010 it was Mark Zuckerberg, who ultimately needs to introduction or explanation Regardless of how you feel about these people as individuals and influencers, there is no doubt that they HAVE INFLUENCED and arguably changed the world we live in. Has Miley? I'm gonna go with no on that one. The strange silver lining in her pull ahead, if she were to win, she would be the first woman to win in over 27 years. The last woman to win the cover was Corazon Aquino, president of the Philippines, in 1986.
