Taylor Swift has made no secret about her love of Law and Order: SVU’s Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay. In fact, the Bad Blood singer is such a superfan that she even named her cat after her.
So you can imagine the excitement Swifty's 32.7 million Instagram followers felt when she uploaded a video of Mariska meeting the cat version of her character.
The Grammy winner captioned to sweet clip, “Olivia Benson meeting Olivia Benson". And she can be overheard saying, “This is Olivia Benson meeting Olivia Benson and things are going well so far.”
As we know, Olivia Benson is a dedicated detective who investigates vicious felonies and is a member of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit, but the cat version holds her own as one of Taylor Swift's pampered kitties that are revered by social media followers.
Mariska stars alongside Taylor in her epic Bad Blood music video, which was released last month, playing the role of Justice. The Emmy winner has since joined Swifty on stage during her 1989 world tour in Philadelphia, with Taylor taking to Twitter to express her excitement.
"Everyone screamed so loud when @Mariska came out during Style, I'm considering just taking her on tour with me. #QueenMariska #Justice,” she wrote.
Ellen Pompeo also had a role in the music video, and considering Taylor named a her other cat after Ellen’s famed Grey's Anatomy character Dr Meredith Grey, we are waiting with bated breath the moment the feline and her human namesake meet!
