Taylor Swift is taking advantage of the power of the Internet meme. The star is delighting young fans by acknowledging a meme about her that's been circulating online this week.
The meme shows a photo of a pre-fame Taylor as a teenager, along with a fictional sad story about a girl named Becky who died after she "snorted marijuana" at a party. When a user commented, "pretty sure that's Taylor Swift," the original creator simply responded by saying "No, it's Becky." The phrase has now exploded among the singer's fanbase.
On Wednesday, Taylor posted a photo on her Tumblr page wearing a shirt with the words "No, it's Becky." She captioned it, "I'm kind of rethinking the album cover." Her new album 1989 arrives on October 27th.
Taylor shook it off on stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival last weekend. Check out photos from her performance!
