I'm not really sure what is happening with Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" music video, but it's getting a little out of hand. After a social media blitz announcing just about everyone and their mother would be starring in her video, the newest addition to "Bad Blood" Is Mariska Hargitay, who was added on Tuesday soon after Ellen Pompeo. Yes, Mariska. Aka Detective Olivia Benson from the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. And she will be playing a character named "Justice." Say... what?
Seriously, what?! Obviously, a point in T. Swift's corner if she's trying to create the most badass and powerful female crew for a music video ever, because Mariska is my warrior. I'm just like... how did this happen so fast? Not long ago, Swift was a fangirl just like me, freaking out when Hargitay posted an Instagram with Ellen Pompeo as a shoutout to Taylor Swift after she named her cats after their characters, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson. But how doth one go from fangirl to collaborator? I wish Taylor Swift would teach a networking class.
The poster features a naturally formidable and gorgeous Hargitay in Sin City's black and white style, which Hargitay re-posted to her Instagram. She's got spiked leather gloves on and a look in her eyes that can turn you to stone. "Told you I had a surprise," the Law and Order star's caption reads. Also, #Justice.
I don't really know how to react, so I'm just going to quote some of the comments on Mariska's Instagram post: "God gave us a gift" and "I'm having an emotional attack."
