Kim Kardashian, 34, may be the self-proclaimed selfie queen and Beyonce, 34, may be well, Beyonce, but apparently even they aren’t strong enough to take down the powerhouse force that is Taylor Swift. The “Shake If Off” singer reached the big 5-0 on Instagram on Oct. 9, placing her firmly in the number one spot ahead of Kim with 48.4 followers, and Beyonce with 47.5 followers.
Naturally, Taylor took to the photo sharing platform to thank all of her adoring fans, saying, “50 million followers! Thanks so much guys. I’m pretty sure this is just because I have cute cats though.” She’s not lying!

It is no surprise that Taylor is the new queen of social media. On top of being the leader of the world’s coolest squad, and yes, having insanely adorable cats, Tay is undoubtably the pop star of the moment. It also doesn’t hurt that she has a couple of gorgeous new magazine covers to show off on her account these days. First up, her insanely sexy GQ magazine cover, which saw her posing in a curve-hugging nude tank dress worn over a skimpy black bikini. Even Calvin Harris, 31, couldn’t resist praising it on social media!
Then of course, there was her cove for the Oct. 2015 issue of NME magazine, which on top of seeing her posing in a black mesh bra top and an edgy printed bomber jacket, also revealed her desire to take a break from the spotlight following the end of her incredibly successful 1989 tour. “I think I should take some time off,” Swift said. “I think people might need a break from me. I’m going to … I don’t know. Hang out with my friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don’t know.”
If her latest Instagram news is anything to go by, then that statement couldn’t be farther from the truth.
