“Cause baby now we’ve got bad blood.”
After teasing the star-studded cast with an array of scintillating posters for over a week, Taylor Swift’s dramatic star-studded music video for “Bad Blood” is now ready for
our your errbody’s viewing pleasure.
As promised, the #BadBloodMusicVideo finally made its world debut at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, and as expected, TayTay went all out for the highly anticipated music video. For starters, there’s heaps of ass-kicking, some gun-toting, and tonnes of robot-making futuristic girl power written all across the epic clip.
The slew of “Bad Blood” teasers were officially released via TayTay’s Instagram account, which were definitely indicative of what’s to come:
On top of that, each celebrity had their own alter ago in the Joseph Kahn-directed clip, and the character posters echoed a bit of a “Sin City”-esque vibe with the red, black and white color scheme.
In case you didn’t know, rumour has it that this single (TayTay’s 4th single from her hit album “1989“) was widely interpreted as a kiss-off to former pal Katy Perry after a reported dispute over the employment of various backup dancers.
TayTay herself has managed to keep mum over the details regarding the video’s plot top secret, though she did tweet earlier:
And just a few days ago, the ever-growing list of famous faces slated to appear in the video included (but wasn’t limited to):
- Mariska Hargitay
- Ellen Pompeo
- Cara Delevingne
- Lena Dunham
- Jessica Alba
- Karlie Kloss
- Lily Aldridge
- Ellie Goulding
- Hailee Steinfeld
- Gigi Hadid
And much, much more.
The music video features TayTay recovering from a betrayal by a warrior buddy (played by real-life friend Selena Gomez) by going into battle training with a crew that includes various of her model friends and, in the final stages, actresses Mariska Hargitay and Ellen Pompeo.
Believe it or not, Cindy Crawford is also there to give her seal of approval before TayTay marches into battle.
But don’t just take it from us, watch the video below:
“Band-Aids don’t fix bullet holes”, eh? This is not the team of “superheroes” that you’d want to have bad blood with anytime soon (if ever), that’s fo sho.
