Taylor Swift's Tumblr Is The Happiest Place On The Internet And This Is Why

Let's all just sit around and be lovely to each other for a bit.

Right. You probably know Taylor Swift. Blonde, tall, sings about love and life and being happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time.

Walks like a recently birthed gazelle.

She's been pretty cool on Instagram for a while, leaving inspirational comments on her fan's photos.

And intermittently adorable on Twitter as well.

At a certain level of jet lagged, I just start answering all of my business emails with "I'll do whatever I want."

But last week she joined Tumblr, and Tumblr is a strange place. So she asked for advice from her fans.

She had a lot of questions.

She had a lot of questions.

Her first real post was pretty perfect.

I mean, cats.

I mean, cats.

And she carried on being brilliant.

She started looking around Tumblr, trying to figure out what everyone was doing.

Taylor just talks about what she loves. And she is so excited.

But Taytay can also sass the president of her record label.

She truly loves her fans, especially the really cute ones.

Though they all get love.

And she really loves her fans' art.

And really great GIFsets.

So much love.

She shares her cookie recipes.

And her dreams.

Even if they are a little tricky to achieve.

Yet Tumblr is not like other social networks. Swifties on Tumblr have SECRETS. And they were panicked.

This is Becky.

But it was too late. P.I. Taylor Swift was there...

...And she LOVED IT.

Of course, there are still other secrets out there. There's still no word on Wonderfucked.

Context.

Or the so-called Glow Stick Secret.

But enough of that smut. Look at this. She just gets people.

That hashtag though.

That hashtag though.

Look at her amazingly perfect day.

Look at her talking about feminism.

Taylor is all of us.

She's the sort of person who goes to Vegas and looks at pictures of windows.

And craves rustic chic.

She's the sort of woman who ships Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra.

And wants to attend balls from the 1940s.

But can also drop a perfectly loving burn on a fan.

Again, that hashtag though.

Again, that hashtag though.

And she's awkward and self-aware.

And loves sincerely.

And plays goofily.

Because Taylor is all of us.

Because Taylor is bae.

Because she's not the bae we deserve, but she's the bae we need right now.
