The Bad Blood Music video will have tons of stars. Taylor Swift just revealed another mega star that will appear in her new music video titled Bad Blood. Kendrick Lamar is the first male cast member in Bad Blood.

Taylor Swift announced on Instagram that her Bad Blood music video will debut at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on May 17. The poster shows Swift in a dark setting wearing a black leather jacket. Taylor Swift stars as Catastrophe in Bad Blood directed by Joseph Kahn.

Taylor Swift increased the anticipation for the Bad Blood video announcing that Victoria's Secret Angel Lily Aldridge is appearing in the video. She is Frostbyte. As expected Lily Aldridge is not the only surprise. As reported Taylor Swift revealed that Zendaya will be in Bad Blood as Cut-Throat and Haley Williams will be Crimson Curse.

Over the weekend, Taylor Swift revealed four more cast members of Bad Blood. Singer Ellie Goulding will be Destructa X, model Gigi Hadid is Slay-Z, actress and model Hailee Steinfeld is The Trinity and actress and author Lena Dunham is Lucky Fiori.

Now Taylor Swift revealed the first male cast member of Bad Blood. Kendrick Lamar is starring as Welvin Da Great in Bad Blood.

Six days before the premiere of Bad Blood, the count of the cast stands at eight plus Taylor Swift. How many stars can a music video handle?

Bad Blood is directed by Joseph Kahn, who directed Taylor Swift's Blank Space video. He is also known for the movies Torque and Detention.

Earlier this year Kahn caused quite a ruckus with a extreme dark video short of Power Rangers. The "fan fiction" was so extreme that Saban Entertainment, owner of Power Rangers franchise, had the video pull from the internet. The video was soon back as the internet cried out loud enough.

Taylor Swift has been nominated for four Billboard Music Awards. The Billboard Music Awards 2015 will be hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen. Fall Out Boy is confirmed to perform their hit song Uma Thurman with special guest Wiz Khalifa. 

The 2015 Billboard Music Awards will air on ABC on Sunday, May 17 at 8pm ET and will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Taylor Swift tours right now in Japan.
