Taylor Swift's music video budget must be bigger than the one Michael Bay receives for an action movie.
The pop star debuted her long awaited "Bad Blood" music video at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, and, thanks to a cast list featuring Kendrick Lamar and nearly every It Girl available today, it's certainly a doozy.
After training in some kind of female assassin training academy, Swift – who goes by Catastrophe – faces nemesis Selena Gomez, better known as the double-crossing spy Arsyn.
Swift is backed by Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Zendaya, Hailee Steinfeld and Lily Aldridge.
There are even appearances by Jessica Alba, Serayah, Lena Dunham, Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay and modeling icon Cindy Crawford. And – deep breath – let's not forget cameos by fellow musicians Hayley Williams and Ellie Goulding.
Although the costumes are impeccable and these stylish ladies play their roles well, we only wish the video's script writer would have given them a little more plot to work with instead of endless explosions.
