Watch: Taylor Swift Debuts Star-Packed ‘Bad Blood’ Music Video

What do Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Mariska Hargitay, Ellen Pompeo, Zendaya, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne and Jessica Alba have in common? They’re all in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, which was finally released Sunday night during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

Swift has been teasing the mashup of starlets, television stars and supermodels for the past week on her Instagram account, starting with the first promo image, releasing a photo of herself in character as “Catastrophe” for the action-packed video.

Gomez nabbed the lead role as “Arsyn” in the “Bad Blood” video, which also features Hailee Steinfeld, singer Ellie Goulding, rapper Kendrick Lamar, Paramore’s Hayley Williams, “Empire” actress Serayah and models Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt and Lily Aldridge.

All of the music video stars are part of Swift’s who’s-who of A-list friends, and for those wondering why Hargitay and Pompeo are involved — Swift named two of her cats after their TV namesakes: Meredith and Olivia, paying homage to the “Grey’s Anatomy” and “SVU” television icons.

The “Bad Blood” music video from the platinum-selling “1989” album, is directed by Joseph Kahn and produced by Swift.
