Taylor Swift debuted her star-studded music video for “You Need to Calm Down” last night (Monday, 17th June) and we’re absolutely living for it!

The 2nd single is taken from her forthcoming album, “Lover”. The three-and-a-half-minute visual is essentially a nonstop cameo parade, featuring Hollywood celebrities from music, reality TV, Instagram, and everywhere else.


With so many fabulous stars, how can anyone expect to calm the hell down? Especially when former frenemy Katy Perry shows up in her Met Gala burger costume to officially put an end to their long-gone beef.

In conjunction with Pride Month, a ton of LGBTQIA+ stars (and allies) have showed up to lend their support to Swift’s music video greatness. It takes a stance on equality, putting haters and homophobes on blast, and ends with a call for everyone to support her Senate petition in favour of the Equality Act.

Directed by Drew Kirsch and the Grammy winner herself, were you able to spot these famous cameos?

AGHGHGHGH I am crying and voguing at the same time! Never in a million years would I have dreamed I’d be able to call this global superstar my best friend. But she has taught me that you can be on top of the world and still be grounded, humble, thoughtful and kind. Thank you @taylorswift for letting me be such a huge part of something so special and SO important! Thanks for listening to me talk or sometimes rant about social injustices and using your platform to change people’s hearts and minds with your music. Thanks for allowing me to bring all my besties to the party, this was the most fun I’ve had on any set, though trying to pull you away from the drag queens was almost impossible. I love you to the ends of the earth and back, and I can’t wait to keep strutting through life by your side you sweet sweet angel! ps I kept the shoes ?
