TIME have just dropped their list of influential people, with Greta Thunberg taking out person of the year and Lizzo being dubbed entertainer of the year for 2019.
We couldn't agree more!
“We can’t just continue living as if there was no tomorrow, because there is a tomorrow. That is all we are saying,” Greta said to Time, about her campaign on climate change awareness.
Lizzo spoke about her unexpected rise to fame, years after she started making music:
“I’ve been doing positive music for a long-ass time. Then the culture changed. There were a lot of things that weren’t popular but existed, like body positivity, which at first was a form of protest for fat bodies and black women and has now become a trendy, commercialized thing. Now I’ve seen it reach the mainstream. Suddenly I’m mainstream!”
