#Swifties

Swift is one of the most critically acclaimed and popular music artists under the age of 30. She's already won Album of the Year twice at the Grammys, and is a mainstay atop the Billboard charts.

But she's also faced much backlash over the years, being referred to as a snake by other celebrities and critics. She embraced her reputation on her latest album of the same name—"Reputation." She went right back to #1, slaying her haters. It's really the Swifites constantly proving the haters wrong. 

While Swift famously sang in "Look What You Made Me Do," "I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead," that ain't true. Her Swifties keep her relevant and alive.

#Smilers

Cyrus went through many changes over the years. She was first the Disney channel tween superstar of "Hannah Montana," then went from a blossoming country star to super-sexy, so-called twerking pop diva... and now, back to country, soft rock artist. But she remained relevant through her many transitions and reinventions, and it's all thanks to her Smilers. They smiled with her along the way.
