Taylor Swift's Bad Blood music video premieres at the Billboard Music Awards
Worth the wait
Is Taylor Swift trying to take over the world? It appears so, and she's got her posse behind it too. By way of Bad Blood, an angry pop anthem off her 1989 record, Tay-Tay's replaced her signature saccharine-cum-angsty jams of ex-boyfriends for a hit on a female music artist who she apparently had a falling out with. How apt. See the video below.
Hype for the song's accompanying music video has taken social media by storm, with Swift expertly dropping hints on the stars featured in this mini-movie, directed by Joseph Kahn. The list not only includes her gal pals Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne, but also ropes in actors Ellen Pompeo and Jessica Alba, as well as supermodel Cindy Crawford. Never mind that the promotional posters look like slight rip-offs of Sin City's — this looks like the best update to Spice Girls' girl power reign yet. See the characters below.
