Holy Cow! Taylor Swift released her newest music video for her single “Bad Blood.” And like all pop stars, she gets a famous rapper to spit some rhymes to add to the song. And like most songs that get free style verses added to it, it was bad. Like awkward and doesn’t really fit bad. Kendrick Lamar’s addition to an already great song doesn’t really add anything to the song. It was just kind of there. It probably would have been better if Kendrick didn’t rap…in the song.
The music video is pretty epic. It has Taylor Swift kicking ass and taking names in the video with a literally all-star cast of femmes as they do a montage to action adventures movies–in the future. Taylor’s team is getting ready to take on Selena Gomez’s team.
My only real complaint is that there was more of a plot/storyline to the video. Yes, the video is amazing. But it would be epic if there was some sort of storyline. One could argue that there is a storyline in the video but it doesn’t really explain why Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez are at war. It would have been nice to get some sort of clarity on that.
Overall, it’s a very good music video for a bad single version of a song. Here’s the video for your eyes to see and go “that’s amazing!”
