Taylor Swift plays fighting vixen in new video.

After weeks of anticipation, singer-songwriter Taylor Swift debuted her star-studded music video for her new single, Bad Blood, at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards yesterday (May 17).

VEGAS: Pop superstar Taylor Swift offered a new personal transformation Sunday as she debuted a video of herself as an feminist action hero in collaboration with rapper Kendrick Lamar. Featuring 18 celebrities, including Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Jessica Alba, Lena Dunham and Cindy Crawford, the music video starts off with Swift and Gomez fighting a group of masked men in an office. The single version features Lamar, one of the most acclaimed rappers of the moment, in a hip-hop duet — a once unthinkable step for the 25-year-old Swift, who started off in country music before shifting to pop.

The song — whose chorus runs, “Baby, now we’ve got bad blood / You know it used to be mad love” — is about Swift’s fallout with another pop star, widely speculated to be Katy Perry. But the video, directed by veteran music director Joseph Kahn, turns Bad Blood into a mini-action film, with Swift leaping into an office and dueling with baddies. Hoping for a theme of women’s empowerment, Swift enlists as her co-heroines a number of female stars ranging from model Cindy Crawford to actresses Zendaya and Selena Gomez to Lena Dunham, the creator of the dark television comedy series Girls. The 1989 track, long rumoured to be about a feud between Swift and singer Katy Perry, has also has its own emoji — making Swift the first celebrity to get a custom Twitter hashflag, reported The Next Web.

After premiering the video, Swift opened the televised awards by introducing rock veterans Van Halen, who performed their hard-charging 1984 hit Panama.
