Taylor Drops “You Need To Calm Down” Music Video

Taylor Drops “You Need To Calm Down” Music Video

The music video for Taylor Swift‘s latest single “You Need to Calm Down” just dropped, and hey, are you okay?

The singer debuted her colorful, summer-ready new video Monday on Good Morning America, featuring her alongside a lineup of famous friends including Ellen DeGeneres, Ryan Reynolds, the cast of Queer Eye, Ciara, Billy Porter, RuPaul, Adam Lambert, and more.

Notably, the footage — directed by Drew Kirsch and Swift herself — also includes a cameo from Katy Perry, dressed in a cheeseburger costume and getting a hug from Swift, who is wearing a French fries outfit. The two singers reconciled their feud last year and just last week declared there was “peace at last” (over a plate of cookies).

Swift previously teased that the video “has a lot going on” and therefore she wanted her fans to process the song, which dropped last Thursday, on its own first. The anti-bullying, anti-homophobia anthem is the second single off of Swift’s upcoming seventh album, Lover.

“There’s a lot of a lot on this album,” she told EW earlier this year of the new record. “I’m trying to convey an emotional spectrum. I definitely don’t wanna have too much of one thing…. You get some joyful songs and you get the bops, as they say.” Swift added that there are also some “really, really, really, really sad songs,” but “not enough to where you need to worry about me.”

The songstress revealed last week that the album would hit shelves Aug. 23 and would feature 18 songs, more than any of her previous albums.

Taylor Gives Surprise Performance at Stonewall Inn

Taylor Gives Surprise Performance at Stonewall Inn

Taylor Swift is doubling down on her pro-LGBT activity during Pride month: Less than 24 hours after she dropped her new single “You Need to Calm Down,” which includes shout-outs to GLAAD and the LGBT community, she made a surprise appearance before about 100 people at the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village, the site of the pivotal 1969 riots that launched the gay rights movement.

After a rousing pair of songs from Sara Bareilles — including a version of “Brave” that had virtually each of the 100-odd lucky people inside singing along — Swift was greeted by the evening’s headliner, “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Accompanied by a pianist and herself on guitar, Swift tore through a stirring version of “Shake It Off” that was also greeted with a massive singalong. Watch it in the clips above and below.

Madonna gave a surprise performance at Stonewall on New Year’s Eve, commemorating the beginning of the 50th anniversary year of the riots.

In a statement released Friday, GLAAD announced that it has seen an influx of small donations in the amount of $13, likely in reference to Swift’s favorite number. The organization has started a Facebook fundraiser for fans to support its LGBTQ advocacy work for Pride month (choosing $1300 as a goal).

“Taylor Swift is one of the world’s biggest pop stars,” said Anthony Ramos, director of talent engagement at GLAAD. “The fact that she continues to use her platform and music to support the LGBTQ community and the Equality Act is a true sign of being an ally. ‘You Need to Calm Down’ is the perfect Pride anthem, and we’re thrilled to see Taylor standing with the LGBTQ community to promote inclusivity, equality, and acceptance this Pride month.”

AEG, which promoted Friday’s event, announced that it has pledged its support to Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative’s (SIGBI) development of an LGBTQ+ anti-bias training standard in conjunction with anti-bias training experts. The standard is designed to ensure that all people are treated equally in public spaces regardless of gender, gender expression or gender identity. On June 14, AEG and SIGBI are partnering with Hawkins Mikita, Spring Place and Tie the Knot to host the first annual SIGBI Summit luncheon in New York.

Earlier this month, Swift urged her fans to contact senators in her home state of Tennessee and elsewhere to demand passage of the Equality Act. Later that night, she made a similar appeal at an iHeart Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles, appearing in full rainbow garb, leaving fans to wonder whether the fringe of many colors might make its way into the next video.

Taylor performs at the 2019 iHeartRadio Wango Tango

Taylor performs at the 2019 iHeartRadio Wango Tango

Have you ever seen an actual ray of sunshine or rainbow up close? You have now. Because it was Taylor Swift on stage at iHeartRadio Wango Tango presented by JUVÉDERM Collection of Dermal Fillers.

This was Taylor’s first iHeartRadio Wango Tango (Tay-ngo?) ever, and with a new album on the horizon and all of the excitement surrounding her and her new music, the superstar performed a career-spanning set, in front of a stage full of bright colored flowers, leaving fans no choice but to sing along loudly to every single song.

Dressed in tie-dye rainbow shorts, a matching jacket with fringe along the sleeves, and matching rainbow sneakers (she was a literal rainbow), Swift performed “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” “Trouble,” “Love Story,” an acoustic version of “Delicate,” “Style,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and closed out the set with her brand new single “ME!,” which she surprised fans with Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie with to perform the duet with her.

But, Taylor also used the performance as a way to kick off Pride Month (since it was the very first day), and called attention to the petition for The Equality Act she posted to her Instagram the day before in an open letter. While on stage, just before performing an acoustic version of “Delicate” and in her rainbow outfit, she told the crowd:

“It’s wonderful to be spending this particular evening with you because today is the first day of Pride Month! A lot of my songs are about love, and who you love, how you identify, you should be able to live your life however you want to live your life, and you should have the same exact rights as everybody else. So, I started this petition, and you can find the link on my Instagram; it’s for The Equality Act which basically just sends a message to our government that we believe that everybody should be treated fairly in this country. So if you sign it, it would really mean a lot to me, because I think we need to stand up for each other, we need to stand together. Don’t you?”

1. Shake It Off
2. Blank Space
3. I Knew You Were Trouble
4. Love Story
5. Delicate
6. Style
7. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
8. ME! (with Brendon Urie)
