Taylor Swift Returns to Instagram!!!!!!!

Remember Taylor Swift?

You know... Taylor Swift?

The singer who is sometimes country and sometimes pop? Who has a famous circle of friends? And many well-known ex-boyfriends?

She often sings about the latter group of guys and she has broken pretty much every record out there for a solo artist?

Yes, THAT Taylor Swift! There you go!

We understand if you had forgotten all about her, considering the once-omnipresent superstar has scarcely been heard from in months.

The last thing Swift actually did that made news took place way back in January, when she released a music video with Zayn Malik.

Since then, we've heard a lot about Swift (both Tom Hiddleston AND Harry Styles have spoken out about their failed romances with the star), but nothing at all from Swift.

Heck, even her Instagram feed has grown quiet.

Taylor shared a picture of herself at the piano during a concert three months ago and then helped promote Lorde's new single nine weeks ago... and that's been it.

Until now!

On Thursday, Swift updated her account with a post that touts the band HAIM's newest single, "Want You Back," writing along with a photo of the group:

"On. Repeat. Til. The. End. Of. Time."

She included a screenshot of the song on a player, with the cursor paused at 0:13, an homage to the singer's lucky number.

So that's something at least, right?

Not very exciting and not exactly an insight into what the heck Swift has been up to, but it's a small nugget for desperate, anxious fans.

There's been talk and a lot of hope that Swift is working on a a new album, hence her unusual silence.

The musician typically releases one of these every two years in the winter, so she's already about six months behind her usual pace.

Swift positively dominated headlines in 2015 with the success of her 1989 album tour and then again in 2016, due to her highly publicized relationships with now-exes Calvin Harris and Hiddleston.

But she was called out as a liar by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West last summer in a viral incident that involved Kim sharing a phone conversation her husband her with his occasional rival.

The conversation featured Swift giving Kanye permission to rap about her in his track "Famous," seemingly contradicting public statement she had previously made about that song.

It was an epic takedown by Kardashian, and Swift has stayed far away from the spotlight in the months that have followed.

Taylor Swift is Black and White

She didn't bother with this Monday's MET Gala in New York City, for example, an event she has often attended since 2008.

It was at that Gala in 2016 when she engaged in a dance-off with Hiddleston and first sparked rumors of their relationship.

So, is Swift hiding out due to the shame she still feels from that Kardashian diss?

Or is she hard at work on new music?

It's the latter, according to good friend Ed Sheeran, who told the BBC in March that his pal is simply in the recording studio.

"Taylor isn't going to be releasing [this new album] until probably the end of this year, Christmas is the smartest time to release because that's when everyone buys records," he said at the time.

That's fine. Take all the time you want, T. Swizzle.

Just come back to us at some point, okay?

Life as a celebrity gossip website is far more fun when Taylor Swift is involved, whether she's selling out arenas or selling out ex-boyfriends.

We miss you, Tay Tay.
