Fights, fire and revenge: The best of Taylor Swift's Bad Blood

Posted on

After weeks of hype and anticipation, the star-studded video for Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” finally dropped at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards.

The premise takes Swift’s Catastrophe on a mission of revenge after being double-crossed by a former pal named Arsyn (Selena Gomez). Of course, Swift’s squad — which included Hayley Williams, Hailee Steinfeld, Cara Delevingne, Jessica Alba, Karlie Kloss, Cindy Crawford, Ellen Pompeo and Mariska Hargitay — was out in full force in the action-packed sci-fi-inspired music video.

We rounded up the class of vengeful ass-kickers for a few of our favorite moments from the four minute mini-film (if only this could actually be a movie).

Most creative name: Cut-Throat (Zendaya)

If looks could kill. The Disney star brought her A-game as the knife-wielding Cut-Throat (though that poor teddy bear had to pay the price).

Most likely to win in a fight: The Crimson Curse (Hayley Williams)

Seemingly inspired by The Fifth Element’s Leelo, the queen of Paramore was the definition of kickass when she executed that fiery front flip.

Coolest costume: Destructa X (Ellie Goulding) 

While everyone else was clad in black leather and various tiny sharp weapons, Goulding was armed with the best accessory of all: a giant bazooka.

Best mini scene: Boxing with Knockout (Karlie Kloss)

The BFFs went head-to-head in the ring with Kloss’ Knockout and Catastrophe each delivering some powerful punches.

Best film reference: Tron

There were so many crazy sci-fi references throughout the video, but the Tron shout-out with Domino (Alba) reigned supreme.

Swift moment: Catastrophe and Arsyn (Gomez) v. the suits

Fans definitely didn’t get to see this side of Swift in Valentine’s Day. (Never forget Valentine’s Day.)

Who we wanted to see more of: Everybody

Swift brought together some of the most amazing women in the business, but the four minutes we were blessed with was just not enough.

Best deleted scene: The chow-down

We only saw the beginning of the showdown, but at least we know it ended peacefully over In-N-Out burgers and milkshakes.
