Once again, pop star Taylor Swift went above and beyond in her music video only this time, she enlisted the help of some of her A list celebrity friends.
The song, in collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, includes Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Ellie Golding, Cara Delavigne, Zendaya, Cindy Crawford, Jessica Alba and Gigi Hadid in the video amongst other celebrities.
The song — whose chorus runs, “Baby, now we’ve got bad blood / You know it used to be mad love” — is about Swift’s fallout with another pop star, widely speculated to be Katy Perry.
But the video, directed by veteran music director Joseph Kahn, turns “Bad Blood” into a mini-action film, with Swift leaping into an office and dueling with baddies.
Hoping for a theme of women’s empowerment, Swift enlists as her co-heroines a number of female stars.
“Let the lethal forces of femininity rock you to sleep,” Dunham wrote on Twitter ahead of the video’s debut.
