The pop star’s video also features cameos from Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Porter, Ryan Reynolds and more.
Taylor Swift’s new music video features many famous faces, but it’s one in particular that has fans talking.
In Swift’s star-studded video for her song, "You Need To Calm Down," released Monday, Katy Perry makes a surprise appearance, confirming their long-running feud is officially over.
Shortly after the "Pop Queen Pageant" portion of the video — which included drag queens dressed as pop divas Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Cardi B and more — a frosting-filled food fight breaks out.
Swift, wearing a French fry costume, desperately looks around for her match. She eventually finds an orange-haired Perry, dressed as a cheeseburger. The singers grab hands, smile, and share a hug — their beef (pun intended) has been squashed for good.
Perry wasn’t the only celebrity who made a surprise appearance, Swift’s colorful video was filled with many familiar faces, particularly those who are prominent figures in the LGBTQ community — it is Pride Month after all. The video features cameos by Ellen DeGeneres, RuPaul, Billy Porter, Hayley Kiyoko, Laverne Cox, Adam Rippon and the "Queer Eye’s" Fab Five: Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness and Karamo Brown. Even actor Ryan Reynolds and singer Ciara make an appearance.
Although the video is colorful and fun, it presents a powerful message. Amongst all of the LGBTQ appearances, there are protestors holding signs that feature anti-gay comments like, "Homosexuality is a sin" and "Adam + Eve Not Adam + Steve."
The end of the video shares a message to sign a petition in support of the Equality Act. "Let’s show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally," it reads. Check out the petition here.
