Taylor Swift makes insanely catchy songs and insanely adorable cat Instagrams. She’s an expert gift giver. She is also one of the “World’s Greatest Leaders,” according to Fortune.  

Swift was sixth on Fortune‘s list of the “World’s Greatest Leaders,” sandwiched between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and International President of Medecins Sans Frontieres Joanne Liu. In the write-up, Fortune explains its reasoning: “With 1989, the top-selling album in 2014, Swift’s efforts to ensure she gets paid for her music could have a huge ripple effect on the way artists are compensated in an era of free streaming.” 

Swift has already conquered New York. Next step: the world. More importantly, where do Meredith and Olivia fall on the list of the World’s Greatest Cats? (Our guess: just behind Garfield, but right above Grumpy.)
