Taylor Swift may not seem like she has much in common with Steve Carrell’s character in Anchorman, but she and Brick Tamland do in fact, share one very important trait: they both love lamp.

Now that Taylor has conquered Instagram with her epic odes to fall and inspiring messages to bullied fans, she’s decided to set her sights on Tumblr, and since launching her account back in April, she’s been putting her wonderful quirkiness on display all over the slightly sleazier photo-sharing site.

Yes, while Instagram has a strict no-nipple policy, anything goes on Tumblr. It’s not the sort of place you’d expect to find a nice girl like Taylor, but she’s been holding her own amidst the site’s smaller, more confrontational user base.

Recently, when a fan described Ms. Swift as, “that aunt that tries to be ‘hip’ with the young’ns and ‘with the times’ and then asks you what does bae stand for and after you tell her she starts calling everything bae even the lamp next to the couch,” Taylor replied as only she could:

 

“HEY YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LAMP NEXT TO MY COUCH AND I WILL HAVE YOU KNOW THAT IT IS, IN FACT, VERY MUCH BAE #YOU’RE RIGHT THOUGH”

Yes, while most young pop stars would’ve balked at essentially being called a nerdy old lady, Taylor embraced it in hilariously self-deprecating style.

Tumblr is officially a better place these days. Are there any social networking sites left for Taylor to take over?
