Former Wonderland cover girl and undisputed pop princess Taylor Swift drops the video for her new single “Bad Blood” featuring Kendrick Lamar.

Our favourite pop princess Taylor Swift has dropped an epic video for her new single “Bad Blood” featuring Kendrick Lamar. Produced by Swift herself and directed by Joseph Kahn, the action-heavy vid features an impressive host of stars whilst referencing some of the most epic films of all time – think Fifth Element, The Hunger Games and Kill Bill.. As if Tay-Tay and Lamar weren’t enough for us, Selena Gomez, Hailee Steinfield, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevigne, Cindy Crawford, Karlie Kloss and a whole load of other uber-babes make an appearance.
Of course, Lamar didn’t feature on the original version of this track on Tay-Tay’s record-breaking 1989 album, this is a brand new remixed version produced by Max Martin and Shellback and the new video sees each of Swift’s girl gang take on a character and persona whom they named themselves. Whilst Hadid is known as Slay-Z, Karlie Kloss is Knockout (understandable) and Tay-Tay’s best pal Lena Dunham is Lucky Fiori.
As her girl gang advance forward wearing warrior-esque clothes to a backdrop of fierce flames, if there’s one message that’s evident throughout it’s that Taylor is one of the most powerful in the business and that her and her crew are not to be messed with.
