Lizzo is Time's 2019 Entertainer of the Year

For this week's Sunday entertainment feature, I complete the series that began with Greta Thunberg as Person of the Year and continued through the public servants who testified at the impeachment hearings as Guardians of the Year and U.S. Women's Soccer Team as Athlete of the Year with U.S. Women's Soccer Team is Time's 2019 Athlete of the Year" TARGET="">TIME Entertainer Of The Year: Lizzo

Lizzo is the defining star of 2019—not just for the music she makes, but for what she represents. She talks to TIME about her role models, nude photos and a dream career.
Just as sports are about more than athletic competition, entertainment is about more than diversion.  It is also art and art makes statements about society.  That's why I take it as seriously as I do.  It helps that it's also fun.

Congratulations to Lizzo, the U.S. Women's Soccer Team, the foreign service and intelligence community professionals who testified at the impeachment hearings, and Greta Thunberg for being honored by Time Magazine for their impact this year.  May 2020 produce as worthy a group of people.
