These Tweets might explain why!

Katy Perry is one of the world’s most loved pop princesses but it now it seems that she’s also taken the title of Twitter Queen (that’s a real thing, y’know) after surpassing 80 million followers this week. That’s more than the entire population of the UK, wowzers!

Since joining the Twitterverse in February 2009, Katy has treated her fans to many brilliant moments that could explain why she’s become one of the most popular stars on the internet. We’ve hunted down some of her best moments to back up our theory!

That time she called us all Beliebers before we even knew it ourselves.

When she threw so much shade Taylor Swift‘s way during that Minaj-Swift beef.

Back in the day, Katy was a guest judge on The X Factor when she decided to put a young Niall Horan through to the next round, meaning she’s basically responsible for one-quarter (soz Zayn) of our fave boy band.

And the best part? She’s an obsessed, slightly crazy fan just like the rest of us. We can totes relate.

During Perry‘s halftime Super Bowl performance in 2015, it’s safe to say the amazing #LeftShark became the real star of the show, sparking some of the funniest memes of the year. The shark even has his own Twitter account (@leftshark) but still has a way to go to catch up with Katy’s follower count!

Katy even gave her followers the chance to be their very own Left Shark. Who wouldn’t want this?! Coldplay, you have A LOT to live up to.

Aside from all that, we think the greatest thing about Katy‘s tweets are that they make us feel like BFFs even though we’ve never even met (sob), like that time she tried to make us all feel better about getting older.

Or when we realised she goes through the same modern day struggles as we do.

She just *GETS* us, you know?

We love you, Katy Perry! Please never deactivate your account.
