It’s me… I’m the pissed off Dolly Parton fan.
The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, was recently named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2021. I have nothing against Elon personally, the man’s obviously a genius regardless of how you feel about his politics, businesses, ideas about Mars, whatever… but if y’all haven’t noticed by now, I’m a hardcore Dolly fan-girl.
In the profile that announced Elon, Time editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal wrote that the honor goes to “the individual or group who most shaped the previous 12 months, for better or for worse” and is a “marker of influence.”
And while Elon was busy trying to get himself to Mars, Dolly was here on planet Earth Over the last 12 months, launching a record-setting perfume, fund a portion of the Moderna COVID vaccine with a million dollar donation, as well as continuing her incredible work with her charity Imagination Library.
