Taylor Swift Proves She Totally Gets ‘No It’s Becky’ Tumblr Meme

The "Shake It Off" singer showed off her "no its becky" shirt

When Taylor Swift isn’t shaking off her haters, she spends a lot of time on Tumblr. And the singer, whose new album 1989 drops next month, wants you to know that she is totally in on the joke when it comes to a certain Internet meme about her.
