Taylor Swift’s squad is now 50 million strong.
The singer just passed the likes of Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé to become the most followed person on Instagram. “50 million followers!! Thanks so much guys,” she wrote. “I'm pretty sure this is just because I have cute cats though.”

Sure, the cats are part of it, but it’s also #SquadGoals, Calvin Harris, and so much more! To celebrate, we scrolled back through all of Taylor’s Instas -- all the way back to when she was using the Toaster filter! A simpler time! -- and picked the 50 most important:
