Taylor Swift Makes Peace with Katy Perry in New ‘You Need to Calm Down’ Music Video

If you love Taylor Swift’s newest single, “You Need to Calm Down,” you’re in luck.

The 29-year-old singer just debuted a brand-new music video during today’s episode of Good Morning America, and it features one hell of a celebrity lineup.

In the clip, we’re introduced to an Alice in Wonderland-like universe, in which Swift is living her best life while a group of protesters give her a hard time.

While the video appears to take place in a trailer park, it isn’t any ordinary living community. Not only does it look like it came straight from Willy Wonka’s factory, but it’s also populated by tons of familiar faces, including Ellen DeGeneres, Ryan Reynolds, RuPaul, Adam Lambert and the cast of Queer Eye—Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Bobby Berk and Antoni Porowski.

The best part? The music video concludes with Swift—who is wearing a french fry costume—spotting her former frenemy Katy Perry—who is wearing a cheeseburger costume—and greeting her with a big ol’ hug.

“You Need to Calm Down” is Swift’s second single from her upcoming album, Lover. (She first debuted “ME!” back in April.) In addition to the new music, the singer is teaming up with Stella McCartney to launch a coordinating clothing line, which will match the album’s “romantic” aesthetic.

“[McCartney’s] heard the new album, and this new collaboration is inspired by the Lover album,” she said in an Instagram Story. “I’m so excited about that, and really excited that she would want to collaborate in this way.”

If you need us, we’ll be trying to get these lyrics out of our head.
