1989 may have been released in 2014, but it was 2015 that really skyrocketed T.Swift’s star power – at least on social media. 

As we all know, Swift is the most-followed person on Instagram, and recently she cemented that top tier ‘gram status: she gained 40 million of her total (55.4 million) followers in 2015 alone; she coined the term #SquadGoals; and she turned her cats, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson, into bonafide Internet celebs. 

The proof is in the posts. In fact, three of Instagram’s most-liked images of the year come from T.Swift’s account… 


Like this snap of her bouquet from Kanye (#KanTay2020!)

Awwww Kanye sent me the coolest flowers!! #KanTay2020 #BFFs

And the 4th of July shot of Taylor and Calvin Harris that gave us serious #RelationshipGoals.



And of course, a cat snap had to be included.


Meredith is allergic to joy.

She’s a queen on Instagram video, too, with six of the 10 top videos this year. 

They include hanging out with sheep.


Important lessons from today: 1) Sheep are impossible to reason with. 2) Sheep are rude.

A few 1989 world tour performances, like this duet with Justin Timberlake.


I have no way to deal with this. Justin Timberlake is the BEST.

Even an emergency situation!


A fire alarm is going off in the stadium and we don't know what to do.

And obviously, cat videos.


Meredith has been mad all day.

Lots of cat videos.


They've come a long way since the hourly cat fights of the past.

There have been tons of great posts, and more double taps than we can count, but Taylor’s 2015 Instagram takeover may not even be complete yet – we still have December!
