Watch Taylor Swift kill a man with her thighs and pay tribute to Kill Bill in her "Bad Blood" video

Dylan Matthews is a senior correspondent and head writer for Vox's Future Perfect section and has worked at Vox since 2014. He is particularly interested in global health and pandemic prevention, anti-poverty efforts, economic policy and theory, and conflicts about the right way to do philanthropy.

Taylor Swift has been teasing her music video for "Bad Blood" — the latest single off last year's 1989 — for weeks, announcing roles in it for more than a dozen singers (Selena GomezEllie Goulding), supermodels (Cara DelevingneKarlie Kloss), actresses (Jessica AlbaLena Dunham), and people-after-whom-Taylor-Swift's-cats-are-named (Mariska HargitayEllen Pompeo).

It's finally here, and it features a brand new remix of the song with verses by Kendrick Lamar (who has covered Swift's "Shake It Off" and whom Swift previously paid tribute to by posting a video of herself dancing to "Backseat Freestyle").

Watch above. Hat tip to Daniel D'Addario at Time.
