By now you’ve seen the Twitter battle between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift, which is dividing B-girls and teeny boppers the world over. There’s so much about this I wouldn’t have predicted (like T. Swift jumping in on the shenanigans in the first place), but the weirdest thing is that it felt like both a win and a loss for the rest of us.
In case you haven’t already figured it out, Taylor Swift is a lot cooler than you. In fact, this year she seems to have instituted her own new holiday: Instapendence Day.
Yes, each 4th of July all Americans come together in celebrating their right to document every moment of their existence on social media. Despite her penchant for British compatriots, Taylor’s no exception — her holiday just looks a lot better than ours. (Seriously, does she live in a magazine spread?)
