Taylor Swift's highly anticipated music video, Bad Blood, is set to premiere during the Billboard Awards.

The singer has been relatively tight-lipped about the whole thing. The only hints she's given fans are tweets of character posters.

The posters give off a Sin City vibe with a black and white picture of each celeb, some posing with weapons. The only color is the video name,'Bad Blood,' in red.

Like most of Swift's songs, Bad Blood is personal to her. She wrote it about a female artist that she was unwilling to name.

In her RollingStone's interview she says, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not.

She did something so horrible," Swift says. "I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business." Band-aids don't fix bullet holes after being shot in the back!

Swift has gathered seventeen of her celebrity friends to take part in the video.

Each person has chosen their own video persona: Selena Gomez as "Arsyn," Cindy Crawford as "Headmistress," Cara Delevingne as "Mother Chucker," Mariske Hargitay as "Justice," Ellen Pompeo as "Luna," Martha Hunt as "Homeslice," Jessica Alba as "Domino," Serayah as "Dilemma," Karlie Kloss as "Knockout," Kendrick Lamar as "Welvin Da Great," Lena Dunham as "Lucky Fiori," Hailee Steinfeld as "The Trinity," Ellie Goulding as "Destructa," Gigi Hadid as "Slay-Z," Hayley Williams as "The Crimson Curse," Zendya as "Cut Throat," and Lily Aldridge as "Frostbyte." Cat lover extraordinaire, Swift, herself has taken on the name "Catastrophe."

The video opens up in an office building. Swift appears pulling the great Black Widow thigh head lock on the enemy, which are a bunch of guys in suits and masks. Gomez appears to help Swift in the battle for a briefcase. Once the case is secure, and the men defeated, Gomez kicks Swift out the window, starting the 'Bad Blood' relationship. Kendrick Lamar appears to rapping new verses.

Steinfeld's character appears to refit Swift with some stylish armor. Swift and the rest of the cast train in a facility.

Swift takes on Kloss in boxing and Hunt in a sword fight. Swift takes a portion of the crew, armed with a small arsenal, to face off against Gomez and her team.

Swift and Gomez never fight, however, leaving all that bad blood to linger between them.
