Finally, after almost two weeks spent building up a frenzy on social media, Taylor Swift graced us with her star-studded music video for "Bad Blood." Swift opened the Billboard Music Awards by premiering the badass video, featuring all her famous — and gorgeous — friends in roles they all chose themselves

In the video, Taylor stars as the leader of a fierce crew of stunning, weapon-yielding female assassins battling another crew, led by Selena Gomez as Arsyn, all while wearing an assortment of tight leather bondage uniforms. The message is clear: Don't eff with these girls. There were no men in the scenario, hinting at Beyoncé's iconic (and boldly feminist) "Run The World (Girls)" video, though Kendrick Lamar did pop up to rap a quick verse. 

Swift spent the past two weeks teasing fans with individual posters released one by one on Twitter and Instagram. Swift, of course, debuted her own poster first, along with her character's name: Catastrophe. All the posters featured the likes of Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, and plenty more of her famous pals.

But we know what you're here for: the video itself! Enjoy!
