September 25th: Taylor Swift Gets a Crash Course in Memes

Sure, she released one of 2014's biggest albums, but Taylor's takeover of her official Tumblr may have been her year's crowning achievement. In September, she unveiled her burgeoning addiction with some minor confusion as to how everything works, but it didn't take much time for her to become fluent in the world of her fandom, having caught up on some of the most important memes and GIFs of her career. The highlight of this was when Swift stepped out in a shirt that read "no its becky" in reference to a well-circulated meme featuring a photo of a young Swift accompanied by the story of a girl named "Becky" who snorted marijuana then died. Swift kept the jokes coming, posting a reworking of her album cover featuring a photo of herself in the shirt.
