First look: Taylor Swift's celebrity-packed video for 'Bad Blood' is unveiled
Starring Cara Delevingne, Lina Dunham and more
Taylor Swift's epic video for Bad Blood made its wold debut at the Billboard Music awards last night in Las Vegas, adding to the glaring spotlight that the evening put on the songstress who also scooped eight awards on the night. Following some intriguing teaser posters that Swift has been feeding to her 57 million Twitter followers over the past few days, anticipation reached fever pitch before the blockbuster video was at last revealed at the top of Sunday night's show.
The video opens with Taylor fighting 'Asasyn' played by real life pal, Selena Gomez, as she is pushed out of a window and, unfazed, heads to a fighting academy, filled with famous actresses and models, who are set to train Taylor up before they head out to take revenge on her enemy.
Major cameos feature from a slew of stars (all of whom are Swifts pals) from music, TV, film and fashion such as; Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, Lily Aldridge and Cara Delevingne. There were singers: Selena Gomez, Hayley Williams and Ellie Goulding. There were actresses: Jessica Alba, Hailee Steinfeld, Zendaya Coleman, Lena Dunham and Serayah McNeill. Cindy Crawford was there for some reason. Plus, Swift's favorite TV stars and cat namesakes, Mariska Hargitay and Ellen Pompeo. The whole song also happened to be a Kendrick Lamar remix.
Whilst it has been widely rumoured that the song is about a long standing feud with fellow pop-star Katy Perry, we think there is another message that Swift is trying to get across, of women in these industries coming to claim their fair share of hard fought power.
