Taylor Swift's Reign! Tops the Pop Superstar PEOPLE's 2023 List of the Most Interesting People of the Year

The worldwide sensation thrilled stadiums and dominated the charts. Friends believe she's really "just getting started" after her biggest year ever.

Taylor Swift is on top of the world and more in command than ever as she wraps off her most successful year yet,

which is why she's on the cover of PEOPLE's 2023 Most Intriguing People of the Year issue.

According to Forbes, Swift's record-breaking Eras Tour (a 3.5-hour spectacle that pulls from her ten albums and created a history-making concert film) helped propel her to billionaire status. 

Rerecordings of her early albums (which she began releasing after her original label head sold them to music manager Scooter Braun)

have even made vinyl records popular with Gen Z: 1989 (Taylor's Version) set a record for the largest vinyl sales week ever in October, selling at least 580,000 copies.

And the 12-time Grammy winner is still a pop culture force, setting friendship goals with her close-knit circle of girlfriends 

sparking Taylor-mania in the NFL thanks to her new romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
