Taylor Swift officially dethroned Kardashian on Tuesday, when she surpassed the reality star's millions of followers. At press time, Swift has 45.6 million loyal Instagram minions while Kardashian is clocking in at a meager 45.5. Beyoncé comes in third with a cool 45 million followers.
So what were the factors that hurled Swift into her newfound Instagram status? It could be the posts about the bazillion different superstars who have joined her up on stage during her 1989 tour. Or it could be the jealousy-inducing pics of Swift with all of her cooler than cool BFFs. It could be the adorable photos of her cute as a button baby godson, or it could be the inside look at all the sweet events that Swift has put together for her fans.
It could be any or all of the above, but we know the truth. Swift's Instagram mega following isn't because her fans have #squadgoals or like looking at pictures of infants.
It's because of Swifty's cats. Yes, folks, we truly believe Swift's posts about Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey are what keep followers hanging on. Here's the proof.
The connection between Swift and her kitty is just undeniable.
