Serayah McNeill Joins Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Video
Just when we think every celebrity within this plane of existence has already been revealed as a character in Taylor Swift's upcoming "Bad Blood" music video, Tay pulls someone out of the woodwork and shames us into silence. The next famous face of of Taylor's endless campaign is Empire's Serayah McNeill, playing the part of Dilemma. She looks killer in the shot — do you get the joke we're making? Everyone looks like an assassin, so when we use the word killer, we mean it in both the Urban Dictionary sense and in the literal sense: ready to take names and slit throats.
The cast so far is largely comprised of Taylor's friends, because despite her self-proclaimed outsider status, Taylor is actually friends with everyone. And what's the point of being famous if you can't work with your friends, right? Here's a quick recap of the famous faces we've seen so far: Karlie Kloss, Lena Dunham, Kendrick Lamar, Hailee Steinfeld, Zendaya, Ellie Goulding, Gigi Hadid, Hayley Williams and Lily Aldridge. It's a lot of people.
Joseph Kahn directed the "Bad Blood" music video — the same guy behind "Blank Space." That one turned out to be the pinnacle of good Swiftian music videos, a truly self-aware satire that still managed to look good. Here's hoping "Bad Blood" won't end on something inane and corny like her cat Meredith waking up from a dream sequence.
We'll find out when the video airs at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on May 17.
