Taylor Swift Dances With Katy Perry, Ryan Reynolds + More In ‘You Need To Calm Down’ Video: Watch
Taylor Swift lives in the most fabulous trailer park ever in the video for “You Need to Calm Down,” which dropped complete with glittery splash on Monday morning (June 17th).
The bright and color-packed clip, that Swift co-directed, follows the 29-year-old songstress as she traverses the glamorous landscape. From the beginning of her day, when she shrugs off haters to the finalé when she squashes of her beef with Katy Perry, the visual is all about Pride.
Featuring high-end cameos from Ellen DeGeneres, RuPaul, Hayley Kiyoko, Ryan Reynolds, Ciara, Adam Lambert, Dexter Mayfield, Laverne Cox, Chester Lockhart, Todrick Hall, Adam Rippon, Billy Porter, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and more, the collection of top draw talent drive home the message that “shade never made anybody less gay” by showing a same-sex marriage, a line of sunbathing people among other things, all while being yelled at by a group of intolerant protestors.
The clip ends with a pink heart and the message “Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally. Please sign my petition for Senate support for the Equality Act on change.org.” Watch the powerful new video below.
Swift followed the recording’s drop on Friday by playing a surprise set at the iconic Stonewall Inn in New York during a Pride celebration, where she performed “Shake It Off” for the song’s super-fan, Tyler Ferguson.
