Full List of Every Celebrity Cameo in Taylor Swift's 'YNTCD' Music Video

If there's one thing Taylor Swift likes to do in her videos, it's included her celebrity pals. The last time Swift included so many of her celebrity pals was in "Look What You Made Me Do."

This time around, though, Swift is making amends—and the most important cameo was Katy Perry. The two have famously feuded for years, but with "You Need To Calm Down," Swift and Perry have buried their drama—at least publicly. Considering the message of Swift's new song is anti-hate, it may not be surprising that Swift made amends with Perry at the end of the music video.

Swift's message in "You Need To Calm Down" is also about celebrating Pride, which was represented through the LGBTQ icons included in the music video. The full list of cameos has been listed below:

  • Comedian and TV host Ellen DeGeneres
  • Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox
  • The cast of Queer Eye, including Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Jonathan van Ness, Bobby Berk and Tan France
  • R&B singer Ciara
  • TV personality RuPaul
  • Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita
  • Broadway actor Billy Porter
  • Singer Adam Lambert
  • Figure skater Adam Rippon
  • Actor Ryan Reynolds
  • Singer Hayley Kiyoko
  • Singer and dancer Todrick Hall, who also appeared in "Look What You Made Me Do"
  • Dancer Chester Lockhart
  • Model Dexter Mayfield
  • YouTuber Hannah Hart

Doubling down on her theme of celebrating Pride, Swift included a PSA at the end of her video. "Let's show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly rad all of our citizens equally. Please sign my petition for Senate support of the Equality Act on Change.org," it reads.

Swift, 29, explained the theme of her seventh album, Lover, is "romantic." "This album in tone, it's very romantic—and not just thematically, like it's all love songs," she said on Instagram Thursday. "I think the idea of something being romantic, it doesn't have to be a happy song. You can find romance in loneliness or sadness or going through a conflict or dealing with things in your life ... It looks at things with a very romantic gaze."

The 18-track Lover is slated to debut on August 23. It will include "ME," which is a hit she made with Panic at the Disco's Brendon Urie.
