Cara Delevingne, Mariska Hargitay Make Sexy Supervillains in Taylor Swift's New Music Video

Taylor Swift and her infinite amount of famous friends are coming for us all on May 17th.


Taylor Swift is releasing a music video for her single "Bad Blood" off her album 1989 on May 17th, and if you're in any way a famous person, there's a good chance you're in it. For the last week, Tay's been releasing two posters a day of famous women (and Kendrick Lamar, who remixed the single) who will be featured in the video, and the list of guest stars is so crazy and excessive that this video is officially so promising it's dangerous how high our expectations are. Throughout the hyped-up campaign leading to May 17th, these ladies have been featured in a Sin City style poster introducing them with a name Taylor claims each girl chose herself. Today, we got a glimpse at Cara Delevingne's "Mother Chucker," and it was worth the wait.



From we've heard rumored about the video - directed by Joseph Kahn, who also directed Taylor's stellar "Black Space" video -  Cara's character will most likely be joining the others as they help train Taylor assassin-style for the fight of her life against...Katy Perry? Well, not exacly, but Taylor has talked openly (albeit vaguely) to Rolling Stone about a scandal in which an unnamed fellow pop star threw some shade and hired some of her dancers, sparking a feud. Said pop star is presumed to be Katy, and Taylor's been honest that this experience is where "Bad Blood" got its inspiration. From the looks of these posters, Taylor has quite the team supporting her (although we all know "Left Shark"'s got Katy's back in times of need). It's truly as though Taylor's entire prestigious friend catalogue came to life, clad in leather and packing heat. At first, the posters started off pretty innocently, with Taylor revealing her own alter-ego.



Since, there's been levels to the amount of randomness within the guest star circles. For example, no one was surprised to see she'll be featuring her close model pals, including Lily Aldrige, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, and Martha Hunt.









Then she started pulling out some big pop/punk star guns with Zendaya, Empire star Serayah Love, Ellie Goulding, and Paramore's Hayley Williams. Random, but still it made some sense that these fellow singers would show up.










Then it started getting really random, with Taylor's pal and Pitch Perfect 2 star Hailee Steinfeld making not one, but three appearances. Still, the two are friends and Hailee's a singer too so it's still within the reasonable realm.



Following Hailee, the "Bad Blood" video reached a new level of 'WTF' with appearances by Lena Dunham and Jessica Alba, cause, um, why not? 





And if you thought Taylor was just appealing to the teen-angled MTV crowd, just you wait, because two of her recent posters revealed she'll also be including Ellen Pompeo and Mariska Hargitay, thus throwing all rhyme or reason to this video out the window (though Taylor did name her cat after Ellen's character on Grey's Anatomy, so the connection is alive and real). At this point, we can hardly guess what "Bad Blood" will have in store for us, but it's destined to be epic. Or potentially overwhelming. Or just really randomly awesome.
