Usually, it is quite debatable when you say that somebody is the best person in the world, simply because it is all subjective. Popular figures are either liked or not, so when you are going to come in front of the world saying that somebody is the best, you have to know that you are going to be facing major criticism. Unless, apparently, you are Taylor Swift.
Taylor Swift is the coolest person in the world right now. We know: highly debatable, there are perhaps way cooler people in the world than Taylor, but we simply have to give credit where credit is due. Taylor Swift is extremely popular right now and she pretty much signed a historical autograph based on what she did this year alone, or maybe just during this summer.
Let’s think about it for a second: Taylor changed the way Apple run things with iTunes, she basically changed the music market, more or less. She’s got seven Grammys that she can pride herself with, but she doesn’t boast about them, which makes her a lot cooler and now she is the most popular person on Instagram. Ms. Swift, how much awesomeness can you contain and can you give us some advice about how to do it?
Wednesday was “the peak day”, when Taylor Swift topped Kim Kardashian, who was the social network’s most popular until then. Last time we checked, Swift had 45.9 million followers compared to Kardashian’s 45.7 million. Not much, not much, but if Swift keeps it up like this she will have no problem to worry about. What’s actually awesome is that, perhaps, she doesn’t even worry about it at all.
Swift only posted about 700 times on Instagram, while Kardashian has over 3,000 posts, so this just adds more to her popularity. It is pretty much official: the world loves Taylor, but why? What is it exactly that makes her so popular? We have a very simple theory: Taylor is herself in a world in which everybody else is taken. Simply as that.
We live in a world in which we all want to think about the glamour of everything and dream about things that we either want to get through the wrong way or that cannot be real. Taylor is herself, she likes having fun, looking goofy and posing with cats and sweaters. So it is really appropriate that we thank Taylor Swift for her way of being: a true inspiration.
