- Taylor Swift just posted a teaser for her new “You Need to Calm Down” music video.
- She revealed that there will be a TON of celebs in the vid, including Ellen DeGeneres, RuPaul, Laverne Cox, and Ryan Reynolds.
I hope that y’all are ready for TS7, aka Lover, cause Taylor Swift is coming at the internet hard with her new music. Everyone’s (and *especially* Lindsay Lohan’s) fave cast member of the upcoming Cats movie has been hard at work drumming up excitement for her new album, and so far Tay has slammed reporters who asked her sexist questions, ended her six-year feud with Katy Perry, and even showed off some of her new merch.
But today, Taylor is promoting the music video for her new single “You Need to Calm Down,” which is being released on Monday (aka tomorrow). She posted a teaser of the vid on Instagram, and also revealed that there will be *so* many celebrities/TSwift friends in the music video, including Ellen DeGeneres, Cosmo fave Adam Rippon, RuPaul, Ciara, Laverne Cox, Ryan Reynolds, the Queer Eye cast (Tan Frances, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk), Dexter Mayfield, Hanna Hart, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita, Adam Lambert, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Billy Porter, and Chester Lockhart. So yeah…it’s a lot!
Many of these celebs are LGBTQ+ or allies, and that’s what “You Need to Calm Down” is all about—in the song, Tay name-checks the LGBTQ+ org GLAAD and also sings lines like “shade never made anybody less gay” and “can you just not step on his gown?” Our girl also did a surprise performance at the Stonewall Inn for Pride Month last night, making me feel like this song/video will basically be on repeat until the end of Pride. And TBH, I’m not mad about it!
