Taylor Swift is holding onto her exalted position in American culture with the fierce grip of a wrestling superstar. Drop new music? Check. But that’s just the day job. Being human as well as superhuman — that’s the trick for big stars these days, and Swift seems to have it solved.
If you need evidence that TS has still got a lockhold on her fans, check out her cat pic for National Cat Day. This photo garnered nearly 300,000 likes in just 12 minutes? How high can it go?
There’s no limit, it seems. This photo has everything. A cat — and cats pretty much rule the Internet even without being on a pop star’s shoulder. Then it’s beautifully shot. Then it has Taylor Swift. Then it has humor, as she writes: “Hug your cat today. Or don’t, if your cat hates hugs. But anyway. Happy #NationalCatDay.
