She’s a better choice than Obama:
A couple of hackers may have conspired to have Miley Cyrus win Time magazine’s online Person of the Year vote, but the pop star is actually being considered for the magazine’s annual honor, making Time’s list of 10 finalists, it was revealed Monday morning.
Along with Cyrus, other contenders for Time’s 2013 Person of the Year are Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Pope Francis, 2012 winner President Barack Obama, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, NSA leaker Edward Snowden and gay rights activist Edith Windsor.
Still, Time’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2013 Person of the Year, revealing their choice on Wednesday’s “Today” show.
These are the same people who picked “You” for the 2006 POTY. I could be catty and say that Miley is a perfect choice because she represents the triumph of talentless celebrities in today’s culture. But that wouldn’t be true.
Miley actually does have some talent, and IMNSHO she’s a lot smarter than people give her credit for. I’m not buying her raunchy rebel public persona. She does too good a job of keeping it between the lines to really be that out of control.
That’s not to say I approve of her act, but I truly believe that it’s mostly an act. I’ll believe otherwise the first time she gets arrested or gets admitted to a hospital with a drug overdose.
Who would you pick for Time’s 2013 Person of the Year?
