After teasing us with character posters for weeks, the ‘Bad Blood‘ video has finally arrived!
In what looks like a feminized version of “The Expendables” or “Sin City,” Taylor Swift (named here as ‘Catastrophe’) starts off fighting alongside buddy Selena Gomez (as “Arsyn”), who then betrays her.
Afterwards, she undergoes a series of reparation and training with more superheroines played by Lena Dunham, Hayley Williams, and Ellen Pompeo, among others. She then faces Gomez again for a cliff-hanging showdown.
If you’re wondering ’bout Selena’s hairstyle, you should recall that everyone read the song as a diss to former gal pal Katy Perry upon its release. [That thing with their back-up dancers.]
Anyhow, was it a visual feast for you?
