Taylor Swift has shared the colourful, star-studded video for her new single “You Need to Calm Down”.
Opening with Swift in a caravan that she later sets fire to, the video features a staggering array of her celebrity friends including Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox, Ryan Reynolds, the Queer Eye cast, singer Hayler Kioko, and Katy Perry.
Watch the video below:
The group parties in a caravan park and ignore the homophobic protestors who look on waving placards.
Towards the end of the video, a food fight breaks out and Katy Perry appears in a burger costume similar to the one she wore to the 2019 Met Gala.
Swift, dressed as a carton of French fries, spots her and gives her a hug. The scene comes after the two pop stars squashed their long-running “beef”.
“You Need to Calm Down” is the second single from Swift’s forthcoming seventh album Lover, out 23 August via Republic records.
