On Saturday, Swift threw a champagne-filled party in LA to celebrate her 10 VMA nominations. Amongst the attendees were co-stars from the music videos for "ME!" and "You Need to Calm Down" — including Laverne Cox, Hayley Kiyoko, and Chester Lockhart — and, needless to say, it looked like a blast from all the IG stories.
But what really sent the internet spiraling were a few photos and videos of Swift dancing, head-banging, and lip-syncing to "You Need to Calm Down." And though we can't confirm whether or not she was actually tipsy at the event, Swifties were quick to rally on Twitter.
From swirl effect edits to White Claw references, the #DrunkTaylor tag is a verifiable treasure trove of meme-age. And even Swift herself is a fan — if her Instagram acknowledgment is any indication.
"Threw a party to celebrate with the people who made the ME! & YNTCD videos with me- and we had so much fun that 'Drunk Taylor' is trending on Twitter," Swift wrote beside the post, before signing off with a peppy, "CHEERS."
Aw, talk about cute. Check out a few of our favorite #DrunkTaylor memes, below.
