Taylor Swift just gave the world a sneak peek at her upcoming "Bad Blood" music video, and it's catastrophic. And by "catastrophic," I mean, that's the name of her character, Catastrophe, in the black-and-white movie poster she tweeted out to promote the vid on Thursday morning (May 7). (Someone call me an ambulance?)
Our girl Tay has been keeping plans for "Bad Blood" on the low, but today, she announced that the video will premiere on May 17. The video will be shown at the opening of the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at 8 p.m. ET.
Swift gives us a cunning glare in the poster, which reveals that the video is directed by Jospeh Kahn, the same person who helmed the "Blank Space" vid. The graphic has almost a "Sin City" approach to it, with the letters in a bloody red, plastered over a badass Taylor.
The singer has been seen on set of the music video with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Haley Williams, Cara Delevingne and Zendaya Coleman. I'm guessing that they'll be playing different, backstabbing characters. (There's also a rumor that "Bad Blood" will be remixed by Kanye West.)
Swift also recruited her friends to film video shorts for her 1989 World Tour, which she kicked off in Tokyo earlier this week.
Taylor is up for the 2015 Billboard Chart Achievement Award along with Meghan Trainor and Iggy Azalea. And voting is still open so vote and get ready for some badassness. I cannot wait.
