After weeks of anticipation, fans have finally seen the much-awaited Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video which featured some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. The video debuted at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 17, 2015 (US time).
The music video released the remix version of “Bad Blood” featuring Kendrick Lamar. The song is from Taylor’s top-selling album 1989. Major personalities made a cameo in the video and it was total girl power including the likes of Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, Hayley Williams, Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt, Hailee Steinfeld and a whole lot more.
The video was directed by Joseph Kahn, who also directed Taylor’s chart-topping “Blank Space” single.
In Taylor Swift’s interview with Rolling Stone magazine for its September 2014 issue, the Pop Star shared the inspiration behind the song. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" she said.
"She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me,” she revealed. Though she did not name the subject of the song, gossip sites have pointed out that she was talking about Katy Perry.
