Taylor Swift Makes Billboard Music Award History; Unveils Superheroine Music Video

Taylor Swift Makes Billboard Music Award History; Unveils Superheroine Music Video

Taylor Swift made history Sunday night at the Billboard Music Awards after winning 20 awards, making her the most decorated artist in the show’s history. The country-turned-pop star surpassed Garth Brooks’ 19-win record.

While Swift did not perform during the show, she unveiled the music video for her fourth single off 1989, “Bad Blood,” rumored to be about her fall out with pop star Katy Perry.

The Kendrick Lamar remix was set to a sci-fi-themed production featuring explosions and a star-studded cast of supermodels, Oscar-nominated actresses and more.

Among the video’s highlights were appearances by Lena Dunham, Martha Hunt, Selena Gomez, Hayley Williams and Ellie Goulding, all portraying sci-fi assassins.

Beneath the sleek action-packed production, Swift’s larger message was more explosive— setting out to convey the message about power in Hollywood. And the superstar, backed by her army of fiercely powerful superheroines, sets the record straight: you wouldn't want to have her as an enemy.
