After weeks of hype and badass Instagram teaser-posters, Taylor Swift has finally released her star-studded video for Bad Blood.
The singer dropped the highly anticipated video last night at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, surrounded by her new boyfriend Calvin Harris and many of her Bad Blood co-star friends.
The video for Bad Blood, which is rumoured to be about Swift’s falling out with fellow pop singer Katy Perry, has one of the most impressive celebrity line ups in video history. Lily Aldridge, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt, Zendaya, Hailee Steinfeld, Lena Dunham, Serayah Love, Jessica Alba, Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay, Cara Delevingne, Kendrick Lamar, Cindy Crawford, Ellie Goudling, Hayley Williams and Selena Gomez all star alongside Swift, who trains with her team of assassins to exact revenge on her former partner, played by Gomez.
Swift produced the video, which was directed by Joseph Kahn, who Swift may or may not know directed Katy Perry’s 2009 Waking Up In Vegas video. We’ll let Wikipedia tell her that.
There’s a lot going on in Swift’s Bad Blood and a lot of people going on, so we thought it would be best to break it down by the numbers.

Ellie Goulding may be besties with Swift now, but there was a time when she was rumoured to be the woman behind Swift’s close friend Ed Sheeran’s heartbreak.
