Watch: Taylor Swift’s 'You Need to Calm Down' music video features Katy Perry, Ryan Reynolds, Ellen DeGeneres
'You Need to Calm Down' is the second single from her seventh album Lover, to be released on 23 August.
Taylor Swift’s new music video features a number of famous faces, including Katy Perry, Ryan Reynolds, Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox, RuPaul and the cast of Queer Eye. The clip for her song 'You Need to Calm Down,' in which Swift calls out homophobes and her own haters, was released on Monday.
The #YNTCDmusicvideo is out! First, I want to say that my co-stars in this video are AMAZING. Please celebrate by supporting their work, following them, and going to see them perform. I’m SO grateful and SO EXCITED I ACTUALLY DO NEED TO CALM DOWN.🍹 https://t.co/787ksrnpBY pic.twitter.com/Oj7GtQ7fxa

Billy Porter, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Adam Rippon also make appearances in the colourful video. The clip closes with Swift and Perry — dressed as french fries and a hamburger — hugging. The two had mended their friendship last year after publicly feuding. The video finishes with the words: “Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally.” Swift even references the gay rights organization GLAAD when she sings, “Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD?/ Sunshine on the street at the parade/ But you would rather be in the dark ages/ Making that sign must’ve taken all night.”
'You Need to Calm Down' is the second single from her seventh album Lover, to be released on 23 August. The song is the follow-up to 'ME!,' which featured Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco and peaked at No 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Swift’s last album Reputation released in 2017.
