Taylor Swift’s ‘You Need to Calm Down’ Video Features Her and Katy Perry Mending Their Friendship (WATCH)
Taylor Swift's "You Need to Calm Down" music video premiered early Monday morning (June 17) on Good Morning America.
The colorful clip, which features cameos from Ryan Reynolds, the cast of Queer Eye, Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Lambert, Hayley Kiyoko and more, finds Swift waking up in a cutesy trailer park, burning her smartphone and spending her day relaxing in a pool, sipping tea at a tea party, tanning leisurely and hanging out with the other friendly, diverse and eccentric residents of the park.
At one point, Swift participates in a pop star drag show featuring drag queens and celebrities dressed as Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Beyonce and more, while homophobic picketers have a meltdown.
Dressed as a package of french fries, she also dances with and hugs the actual real-life Perry, who is dressed a cheeseburger (a playful nod to Perry's campy 2019 Met Gala look), officially and once and for all ending their reported public feud.
Other celebrities featured in the video include Adam Rippon, Laverne Cox, Billy Porter, Ciara and Todrick Hall, among others.

Arguably one of the pop star's most politically-charged songs to date, Swift released "You Need to Calm Down," the pro-LGBTQ, anti-hate second single off her forthcoming album, Lover, on Friday (June 14).
The track, which features lyrics criticizing homophobia, resulted in a reported spike in donations to LGBTQ+ organization GLAAD, which Swift gives a shout-out to in the song.
