  • The Most Popular Memes on TikTok in 2018

Now that we’ve covered the biggest memes of 2018, let’s take a closer look at some of the most creative and interesting ones. From an inside look at the making of a Taylor Swift meme, to a collection of GIFs that perfectly summarize Donald Trump’s time in the White House, here are some of the most interesting memes of the past year.

Taylor Swift’s Meme Collection

Even before she became the most popular celebrity on the planet, Taylor Swift was known for her humor. She is, after all, the queen of memes, sometimes credited with creating the genre. After becoming a celebrity in her own right, it would appear that Swift has simply continued her trend of creating funny and innovative memes. Here’s a look back at some of the most interesting ones.

In April 2018, the pop star released her new album, Lover, which was, at the time, the bestselling album of all time. With each new track, Taylor Swift offered up some comedic gold.

The album’s first single, “Meghan Trainor’s TBT,” proved to be one of the singer’s most popular memes. The song’s “Meghan Trainor” is a parody of Trainor’s “Treat Me Like A King.” The song’s “Meghanite” memes feature a white queen crushing on a dark-skinned girl.

The second single, “BTS,” is a reference to the band Better Than Sons, whose members are the sons of famous musicians. The song’s music video finds the band performing in the middle of an empty field with only a mushroom, a chicken, and a fox watching them.

The track “Lover,” from the album, is named after Swift’s dog. The pop star has been known to joke about the pooch’s prominent role in her life. In one Instagram post, Swift shared a snap of herself with the dog, writing: “This is our dog, Logan. He’s a rescue dog and one of the sweetest things I’ve ever met. Every time I feel lonely or depressed, I just want to pour myself a glass of wine and cook dinner for him. He’s such a good boy. Thanks for making me a foster parent Logan!”

Another popular Twitter meme generator, @BTS_Meme, has been racking up the Instagram likes with witty captions and surreal imagery. The account’s latest masterpiece is an image of the singer baring her teeth, accompanied by the caption: “When I see people trying to be cool on social media, I always think to myself ‘why aren’t you outside? It’s beautiful out there. The air is fresh and the people are looking healthier. No wonder you’re so tired on social media.’”

Last but not least, let’s not forget about the queen of all memes, @taylorswift13. The account boasts over 54 million followers and continues to pump out fresh content whenever the mood strikes.

The popularity of these accounts on TikTok and Instagram shows that pop culture fans are eager to learn more about their favorite celebrities. These creators provide a platform for fans to interact with their idols via memes. Fans can also engage with the creators, responding to their jokes and providing additional context to each photo.

The Handmaid’s Tale

On the surface, it might not appear that the Hulu series, The Handmaid’s Tale, is a perfect fit for a meme-worthy moment. The drama, based on Margaret Atwood’s best-selling novel, is set in a puritanical future where women are stripped of their rights and forced into marriages to powerful men. Led by fierce heroines, Offred and Emily, here are some of the most interesting memes from the show’s first season.
