Billboard Music Awards 2015 was special for Taylor Swift for several reasons. First, she was nominated for 14 awards, out of which she won 8. Second she was with her boyfriend Calvin Harris-the first time Taylor took a guy friend to an award ceremony in a looong time. Third, the most anticipated “Bad Blood” music video was being released.
There was so much anticipation for this music video as Taylor Swift teased 20 or so celebrities for it. The celebrities were all A-listers like Cara Delevingne, Jessica Alba, Martha Hunt, Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss and many more. The only male talent in the music video was none other than Kendrick Lamar himself. So naturally, it was a “Bad Blood” remix music video.
Watch Taylor Swift and More Celebrities in “Bad Blood” Music Video Featuring Kendrick Lamar
The “Bad Blood” music video features hot models and singers wearing badass dresses and getting ready for a fight between two teams. Team Taylor and Team Selena. The ladies look hot in their attire, and slim figures. Kendrick Lamar delivered an amazing rap all throughout the “Bad Blood” remix.
In my honest opinion, the music video was not a huge success. The music video lacked a storyline for it’s 4 minutes of run time. That was to be expected considering that 20+ celebrities were needed to be fit into such a short time scale. It lacked the Taylor Swift that was in “Blank Space“. “Bad Blood” lyrics have an interesting story and Taylor Swift or the director Joseph Khan could have done something better with it. But, it is what it is. The “Bad Blood” remix music video is here.
With the release of the music video, “Bad Blood” remix featuring Kendrick Lamar has been the number one selling single on iTunes. And after 9 hours since release, the music video on YouTube has gained 1 million views. The stats will quadruple in this morning.
