All hail the reigning queen of Instagram!

Taylor Swift just reached a major milestone on the social media platform after she clocked in at over 50 million followers.

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 now clocks in at a fan base higher than 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 today. Earlier this morning, 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, the crooner smolders for the men's magazine shoot.

And as luck would have it, her beau Calvin Harris even favorited several tweets about how stunning she looks in the photo. We all agree!

Way to go, Taylor! Bravo on your latest milestone!
