If you didn’t tune into the 2015 Billboard Music Awards last night, May 17, you were totally missing out. Not only did Taylor Swift dominate and take home quite a few trophies — along with Sam Smith and One Direction — but she debuted her “Bad Blood” music video. Accompanying the 25-year-old in the highly-anticipated video were all her best friends and a few randos thrown into the mix. Let’s break it down for those of you who missed it or need an encyclopedia of all the celeb cameos:


The first character we’re introduced to is none other than T-Swift herself, starring as Catastrophe:

Next up is Selena Gomez as Arsyn, who totally betrays Catastrophe. She’s basically the Katy Perry of the bunch:

Then we’re introduced to Kendrick Lamar’s character, Welvin Da Great, who adds a whole new spice to the song:

Taking a break from her Girls duties is Lena Dunham, smoking a cigar as Lucky Fiori:

But who’s going to fix Catastrophe after getting her butt thrown out of a window by Arsyn? Leave that to The Trinity, aka Hailee Steinfeld:

Now it’s time to start meeting Catastrophe’s fellow badass ladies. First up is Empire breakout star Serayah as Dilemma:

Then there’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kiddo Gigi Hadid putting her modeling chops to good use as Slay-Z:

Next up, and armed with a bazooka, is Ellie Goulding barely looking like herself as Destructa X:

Then Catastrophe finds herself going up against sword-wielding gal Homeslice, aka model Martha Hunt:

What would an all-female ninja collective be without nunchucks? Meet Cara Delevingne’s character, Mother Chucker:

Zendaya then pops up in the video as Cut-Throat — someone that would make us sleep with one eye open:

Coming on the scene next is The Crimson Curse, aka Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams, doing all kinds of flips:

Then, in what may be the most visual part of the video, we meet Lily Aldridge’s character, Frostbyte, as she and Catastrophe go head-to-head in a snowy room:

Ding ding! We now find Catastrophe in the boxing ring facing off against BFF Karlie Kloss — Knockout in the video — looking like the twins they basically are:

Let’s take a break from all the fighting and ride some motorcycles, shall we? Jessica Alba’s on-screen counterpart, Domino, is down:

Next up are two acting greats: Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo as Luna and Law & Order’s Mariska Hargitay as Justice. All we get from them is a nod and we’re OK with it:

Finally we wrap up the cameos with Cindy Crawford as Headmistress. Of course this legend would be the leader of this rebellious group of killer ladies. And, of course, she looks flawless:

The video then ends with Catastrophe and her gang meeting up with Arsyn and her crew. We’re not privy to who wins this WWIII-level battle, so now we’re hoping there’s a follow-up! Check out the full video here:
