    The "Blank Space" singer took to Instagram (naturally) to thank all of her adoring fans, saying, "50 million followers! Thanks so much guys. I'm pretty sure this is just because I have cute cats though."

    Swift's fan base surpasses Beyoncé and even Kim Kardashian, who have 47.5 and 48.4 million followers each, respectively.

    But that's not the only reason why T.Swift landed in the headlines Thursday. Earlier, the Grammy winner's first cover for GQ was released and caught everyone's attention.

    Dressed in a figure-grazing see-through dress and leaning up against a beach setting, Swift is smoldering for the men's magazine shoot.

    And as luck would have it, her boyfriend, Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris, even favorited several tweets about how stunning she looks in the photo. We all agree.

    Way to go, Taylor. Bravo on your Insta milestone.
