Taylor Swift debuted her anticipated new video "Bad Blood" to deafening screams at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

The video, featuring collaborator Kendrick Lamar, sees Swift star in a mini all-female superhero film (minus the rapper, who plays 'Welvin Da Great').

The all-blazing Hunger-Games-meets-Men-in-Black video stars a host of well-known actresses, singers and models including Lena Dunham, Jessica Alba, Ellie Goulding and Cara Delevingne.

The video has been met with excitement by Swifties, but not all of her fan base is impressed by the singer's four minute version of a superhero movie.

Swift won eight accolades at the Billboard Music Awards including top artist, top female, top Billboard 200 artist and album and hot 100 artist.
