Pussy Riot Nominated For Time's 'Person Of The Year'
Members of Pussy Riot who were jailed for their infamous protest in a Russian cathedral have been nominated for Time magazine's Person Of The Year award. They will compete with 38 other nominees for the award, including daredevil Felix Baumgartner, Apple boss Tim Cook, "Fifty Shades Of Grey" author EL James, and Korean rapper Psy. Last year's winner was "the protester", simply to represent the people who took part in protests around the world in 2011. In 2010, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg won the award. Writing about Pussy Riot, Time said: "In a year when so many voices of liberty and dissent have suffered harsh retribution, the Russian feminist punk group Pussy Riot has paid a particularly steep price for provocative political expression." One of the three jailed members of Pussy Riot has been released after proving that she hadn't even taken her guitar out its case before being booted from the cathedral. The other two continue to serve a two year sentence, with one of them recently being moved to solitary confinement for her own safety. Who would you nominate from the rock world as person of the year? Post your nominations in the comments.
