It is her, queer and proud! Singing sensation Taylor Swift just dropped her music video for You Need To Calm Down after days of leading upto it. After hinting of multiple celebrity cameos in the music video, oh boy has she delievered.
Teased as a 'delicious' video on Instagram, the final product, set in a trailer park, included cameos by Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Lambert, Ryan Reynolds, Laverene Cox, Dexter Mayfield, Ciara, RuPual, Jesse Tyler and husband Justin Mikita, Billy Porter, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Chester Lockhart, Adam Rippon and Hannah, plus Queer Eye stars Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk and Tan France.
OKAY SO the YNTCD video is officially out!! First things first, I want to say that my co-stars in this video are AMAZING. Please celebrate this video by supporting their work, following them, and going to see them perform. I’m SO grateful to everyone who lent their time to this video and SO EXCITED I ACTUALLY DO NEED TO CALM DOWN. #YNTCDmusicvideo
Also seen in the video was a surprise cameo by Taylor's recent enemy-turned-friend Katy Perry! The two hugged at the end of the video, with Katy dressed like a hamburger (like she was during the Met Gala, for those looking for past easter egg hints of this) and Taylor dressed like French fries.
You Need to Calm Down is featured on Taylor's upcoming album titled Lover, which is expected to be released on August 23. And while the track has only been out since Friday, fans can't get enough of the lyrics that stand up for the LGBTQ community.
During Taylor's Instagram Live last week, the singer teased there's a lot packed in this video (and by a lot, she likely means easter eggs too that will give hints about the rest of her upcoming work.) The singer will release 16 additional songs on her album Lover. "The video is very worth the wait," she said of why she released just the song Friday. "There's a lot going on in the video so I wanted that to be a separate discovery."
