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.”

50 million followers!! Thanks so much guys. I'm pretty sure this is just because I have cute cats though. 😸
