TIME Announce Their Shortlist for Person of the Year

Taylor Swift and Vladimir Putin sit beside eachother on a list for the first – and probably last – time ever.

The shortlist for TIME magazine's person of the year is here and, in our humble opinion, Taylor Swift is the frontrunner.

TIME magazine editor, Nancy Gibbs, has stated that this year's contenders are "people in different ways and in different spheres that have had the most influence this year", and she is not messing around with that description – the contenders are definitely a weird amalgamation of people.

Taylor Swift earned her spot on the list for her displays of business acumen, not simply because she is the reigning queen of Instagram but also because savvy decisions, like leaving Spotify, have secured her positions as one of the biggest stars alive today. The Ferguson protestors make an appearance as a group for undertaking the responsibility of launching "a conversation about race relations and the administration of justice in this country" said Gibbs. Also on the list are Vladimir Putin, President of Iraqi Kurdistan, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Jack Ma (founder of China's enormous Ebay-style site), Alibaba, and Roger Goodell (commissioner of the NFL).

The winners will be announced tomorrow (we have full faith in T-Swizzle to bring this one home).
