After weeks of insane, mysterious poster promos, Taylor Swift finally debuted her “Bad Blood” (music) video—and, well, it may have lived up to the hype.
Essentially, the four-minute short follows Swift, a.k.a. Catastrophe, as she trains for revenge/redemption after Selena Gomez’s Arsyn double-crosses and tosses her out of a three-story building. After being nursed back to health by Welvin Da Great—a.k.a. Kendrick Lamar, who also serves up a damn good remix on the track—Lucky Fiori (a cigar smoking Lena Dunham), and The Trinity (Hailee Steinfeld), Catastrophe is then admitted into some sort of badass underground training camp, where we meet just about every huge star imaginable (Cindy Crawford, Jessica Alba, Mariska Hargitay, Ellen Pompeo, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Hayley Williams, Ellie Goulding, Gigi Hadid, Zendaya, Martha Hunt, Serayah, and Lily Aldridge). There are invisible Lamborghinis, boxing matches, and an ultimate Hunger Games arena-esque fight scene.
Honestly, the only thing that could have made the Joseph Kahn video more epic would be an appearance by Katy Perry—who the song is reportedly about.
