It's Taylor Swift's world, we're just living in it. Beyond being amazingly generous, an adorable girlfriend, an advocate for the underdog, a loyal friend, and a burier of hatchets, Swift is now the most followed celebrity on Instagram

With 50 million followers, she beat out Kim Kardashian (48.4 million) and Beyoncé (47.5 million). 

So what's next for Tay now that she's pretty much handled world domination? If up to us, we're hoping for more cute cats.

I'm pretty much always looking for the perfect GIF for any situation. When I'm not trolling the internet, I can be found dancing like a weirdo or napping like it's my job. Right now, I'm probably eating or drinking something filled with sugar or booze. (Sorry, mom.)
