Press Play: To See What Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video actually says about power in Hollywood
Don’t mess with Taylor Swift.
That’s the takeaway from Swift’s much-awaited music video (see below) for her latest single, “Bad Blood,” which aired at the top of the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. For days, Swift has been tweeting mysterious, scary-looking clues about the video to her 57 million followers, and Internet anticipation reached a fever pitch over the weekend.
The song is widely known to be about Swift’s feud with pop star Katy Perry. In typical Swift fashion, she never mentions Perry by name, but has dropped enough clues in interviews that it’s fairly obvious that the former friends had a falling-out. Even Perry braced herself when word of the song emerged.
