On Sunday 17th May while you were probably watching TV in your pj’s and dreading the Monday morning slog, Taylor Swift debuted her highly anticipated video for ‘Bad Blood’ at the Billboard Music Awards. Why was it so highly anticipated you ask? Well in this video Taylor brought some of her best (and hottest) friends together and gave them all badass aliases, including herself. Watch the video below to see just how badass they are:
So who are these people and who are their aliases?
Taylor Swift as Catastrophe:
Selena Gomez as Arsyn (Taylor’s enemy in the video):
Hailee Steinfeld as The Trinity:
Gigi Hadid as Slay-Z:
Zendaya as Cut Throat:
Lena Dunham as Lucki Fiori:
Cara Delevinge as Mother Chucker:
Hayley Williams as The Crimson Curse:
Karlie Kloss as Knockout:
Ellie Goulding as Destructa X:
Lily Aldrige as Frostbyte:
Jessica Alba as Domino:
Cindy Crawford as Headmistress:
Serayah as Dilemma:
Ellen Pompeo as Luna:
Mariska Hargitay as Justice:
Martha Hunt as Homeslice:
And of course last but not least the only male in the video, Kendrick Lamar as Welvin Da Great:
Personally my favourite character is Cut Throat because she’s the baddest of them all. Also, is it just me or is this the first video where there have been this many supermodels in one place other than the Victoria Secret catwalk? Just saying…
The video has managed to rack up over 36 million views in less than 4 days, which is no doubt the reason why Taylor managed to win 8 Awards that night, including: top artist, top Billboard 200 artist, top Hot 100 artist and top streaming song. No wonder she looks happy!
It was released today that ‘Bad Blood’ generated 20.1 million views in only 24 hours – breaking the Vevo world record! Taylor can do no wrong!
