Taylor Swift Kicks Butt In “Bad Blood” Fight Training Video — WATCH HERE!
Taylor Swift kicks some butt in a never-before-seen video from the fight training she did for “Bad Blood.” The pop star shared the behind-the-scenes footage on Instagram Tuesday to celebrate her nine MTV Video Music Awards nominations. Watch the video below!
In the video, Swift is seen punching and swinging at a trainer and then tosses him on the mat, before taking a swing at another stuntman. She captioned the video, “Throwback to my first day of fight training for the Bad Blood music video. Thank you so much for the 9 nominations. You can vote for Video of the Year NOW!!!”
The “Bad Blood” video, which debuted in May at the Billboard Music Awards, features several of Swift’s celebrity friends including Selena Gomez, Martha Hunt, Lily Aldridge, Zendaya, Serayah, Gigi Hadid, Lena Dunham and more. Swift faces off in the clip with Gomez as they play warring enemies. It marked the first time fans have gotten to see Swift as an action star.
The video, which also features Kendrick Lamar, was super successful, and has now led to multiple VMAs nominations. As Gossip Cop reported, Swift received two nominations for her “Blank Space” video, and seven for “Bad Blood,” including Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Editing, and Best Visual Effects.
As Swift herself noted, “Bad Blood” is also up for Video of The Year Award, the night’s biggest honor, and she’s competing against Beyonce’s “7/11,” Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” Lamar’s “Alright,” and Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.” And the pop star really wants her fans to help her win. Shortly after the nominees announcement, she posted on Twitter, “GUYS!! You got Bad Blood nominated for Video of the Year at the VMA’s!!
