Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood video is going to be amazing!!

When I first heard that Bad Blood was going to be a single, I was shocked because Taylor Swift has so many other single-worthy songs on 1989. I like the song a lot, but it definitely isn’t my favourite. However, I am SO excited for the music video as Taylor has nailed the promo for it – it doesn’t come out for more than a week and these posters are creating so much hype – they hint at a movie quality action movie vibe, a kick-ass revenge theme and there is an epic cast.

Taylor has many celeb friends so it’s no surprise she roped them into a promo at some point. So far she has released five promo posters for Bad Blood and we have an all-star cast of models Cara DelevingneGigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss and Lily Alridge, Hailee Steinfeld, Lena Dunham, Jessica Alba teen star Zendaya, Empire actress Serayah McNeill, Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez and Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams. I LOVE Hayley so her being in this excites me a lot. Does this mean the singers are on the track?! You rarely get artists in videos if they aren’t contributing to the song.

I’m really intrigued by the addition of Kendrick Lamar – I know Taylor loves his music but I didn’t know they were buds. It clearly isn’t just members of her ‘squad’ anymore.  But the most surprising has been the additions of Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay and Cindy Crawford. I’m pretty sure they don’t know each other but this was clearly about the cat connection – Taylor named her pets after Pompeo’s character Meredith Grey (Grey’s Anatomy) and Hargitay’s Olivia Benson (from Law & Order: SVU). Hargitay also wrote an essay about Taylor for Time magazine’s Most Influential People issue. I don’t know what the Crawford connection is.

Besides the cast, I think the main cause for hype (I never get this excited for promos!) is because the posters hint at a bloody action Kill Bill style video, which will be super different to Taylor’s usual stuff. I can’t wait to see her wield a weapon! And I love they’ve all been given alter egos (check the posters).

My only concern is that the direction of the video won’t fit the song – it’s a really catchy, cheerleader chanty type song. And remember the track is reportedly about her beef with Katy Perry! So this video is essentially going to be a ‘my friends are better than yours’ type thing?! Anyway, I’m sure it will be amazing – it debuts at an awards show, which is odd but just shows the power of Taylor!
