Taylor Swift is really hyping up her next video off last year’s 1989 through cool Sin City-like posters on social media.

On May 17, the 25-year-old country/pop singer will debut her visual for “Bad Blood” at the Billboard Music Awards. It’s going to be produced by her and directed by Joseph Kahn, whose has worked with big name acts like Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Mariah Carey and many more. Just a week before the awards show, Swift has been teasing fans by revealing the actresses behind each character starring in her video. Earlier today, she revealed model Gigi Hadid will star as “Slay-Z” and British singer Ellie Goulding with star as “Destructa X.”

Hadid and Goulding join  Hayley Williams ("The Crimson Curse"), Zendaya ("Cut-Throat"), Lily Aldridge ("Frostbyte") and Swift herself ("Catastrophe") that are all set to appear in the video.
