These Drunk Taylor Swift Memes Just Confirm That She Is Our Dream BFF
Taylor Swift has been through a lot.
Her literal reputation issues (cue: Kim and Kanye’s secret recording) led her to write an album called Reputation, for which she toured fully packed stadiums, decked out in dark themes interspersed with serpents. Because, look, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now…
She’s too busy celebrating her massive success by being reborn as Drunk Taylor. Before all of the Reputation shenanigans went down, though, Taylor basically served us a home-grown, all-American, good-girl persona. We’d never even seen girlfriend drunk or high or messed up in any way.
In fact, if we’re honest, we all sort of found her a bit annoying (sorry) because she was always so put together, tidy, and innocent.
We’ve been introduced to the Taylor we have always wondered about: Does a drunk Taylor Swift even exist? Does she ever just get messy or let loose?
Let’s be real. Taylor drinks just like the rest of us.
And girl has been the legal drinking age for eight years.
From “drinking beer out of plastic cups” in King of My Heart,” to “spilling wine in the bathtub,” in her very sexy track “Dress,” you might be surprised to learn 12 out of the 15 songs on her last album referenced alcohol.
Luckily, we now know for sure that Taylor can get down just like the rest of us, as evidenced by the magical #DrunkTaylor video that’s been galloping all across the internet like an infamous unicorn:
In the video, we see Taylor partying in a room on Saturday in Los Angeles at Beauty & Essex after receiving her numerous her VMA nominations for “You Need To Calm Down.” Along with a bunch of other people — including Laverne Cox, Troye Sivan, Hayley Kiyoko, the HAIM sisters, and Brendon Urie — Taylor is seen dancing to her own song, mouthing the words while doing all sorts of #DrunkTaylor dance moves.
And it’s a true pleasure to watch, inspiring memes a-plenty across the Interwebs.
Which #DrunkTaylor mood are you?
And this hair flip? Can we PLEASE get an amen?
Who hasn’t pulled this move while a few too many rosés deep?
These pictures tell us two things: Taylor knows how to have fun. And we want to hang out with Taylor ASAP.
Of course, because the Internet is incredible, we’ve been blessed with insane memes like this.
Pretty soon, drunk Taylor will be everywhere — and on every continent.
Some Swifties admitted they would voluntarily lose a limb to party with TSwift.
We stan Drunk Taylor’s moves.
Some stans always knew Taylor was this fun.
I mean, have you ever been drunk enough to earn your own hashtag??
Nobody will ever forget this.
She even inspired some makeup.
Also, this meme could not be more accurate.
Less than 24 hours later, you can find her looking like this…
(And yes, that photo above really IS Taylor Swift the day after partying.)
But the thing we love the most about drunk Taylor is that — whether or not she’s playing it up for the camera — she’s celebrating her successes, surrounded by friends, and genuinely exuding a true happiness. And that’s a beautiful thing!
Oh, and did you catch this circulating video of Taylor screaming that she “f*cking loves” Cardi B?
Yeah, we never thought she’d say the F-word, either.
Laverne Cox spilled some actual tea about #DrunkTaylor, and it looks like Twitter got it wrong.
“We had a really good time, we had a blast! We were singing and dancing. Taylor wasn’t drunk, I know there was a hashtag, and she wasn’t drunk. We were just having a blast,” Cox said on KTLA 5.
GIRL, you had us fooled.
All of this comes off the back of Taylor’s September Vogue cover in which fans delight in her eating “an entire plate of cheese by myself.”
Bless your heart, Taylor.
You have to give it to Taylor.
She’s as astute business woman with a keen eye for rebirth — musically and personally.
We’ve watched Taylor grow so much over the past few years.
It’s all evidenced by her emergent political views, her rekindled friendship with Katy Perry and her amazing essay in Elle Magazine.
In the essay, which came out in March this year, we can see how far she’s come from pre-Reputation era Taylor. You know, before the old Taylor died. In it, she writes:
I’m also blocking out anyone who might feel the need to tell me to “go die in a hole ho” while I’m having my coffee at nine in the morning. I think it’s healthy for your self-esteem to need less internet praise to appease it, especially when three comments down you could unwittingly see someone telling you that you look like a weasel that got hit by a truck and stitched back together by a drunk taxidermist. An actual comment I received once.
She even admitted being an approval-seeker.
We think her insights around this are super wise and useful — for anyone, celebrity or not.
Oh, and then there was the part of the essay in which Taylor admitted to learning how to make certain boozy drinks.
We love a good Aperol spritz!
In the end, we think it’s so important that Taylor is embracing life, having fun, and feeling better about herself. And hey — “You Need To Calm Down” is a great song with an important message, one the world desperately needs to hear about these days.
