Taylor Swift Drops Star-Studded 'You Need to Calm Down' Music Video

17 June 2019

"/ Sunshine on the street at the parade", she sings.

Many of her friends and celebs from the industry have contributed to the song.

The video features numerous celebrities who identify as LGBTQ, including Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Porter, RuPaul, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Adam Lambert, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Adam Rippon, Chester Lockhart, Dexter Mayfield, Hannah Hart, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness and Tan France to name a few.

"While we have so much to celebrate, we also have a great distance to go before everyone in this country is truly treated equally", Swift wrote in a rainbow-colored note to her fans.

Then she shared a Boomerang video - a recording that play a short clip over and over - of herself wearing the orange jumpsuit again with garb hinting at her role in the video.

In the video, Swift is a resident of a magical trailer park which looks like a 24/7 Pride parade, and we don't even know where to begin listing the fiercest moments.

The song's lyrics slam those who are full of hate toward the LGBTQ community and basically rebukes them for not leaving the gay community alone to let them live in peace.

Earlier this month Swift announced that she supported the Equality Act. "Quick with the nice nasty clap back", while others gave other words of encouragement and affirmation saying "you tell 'em girl" and "yes, love is love", with heart emojis.

"It was like a random thing", he said. "You Need to Calm Down" marks the second song Swift's released off her seventh studio album after "Me!" featuring Panic!

"Omggggggg I still can't believe I got to be @taylorswift in a @taylorswift music video!"

There were also a bunch of homophobes in the video... you'll see. The protesters are largely ignored by the stars in the video.

Rallying the nearest and dearest to her, Swift previously released the tune from her forthcoming album, Lover, on 14 June.
