Hip Hop So Bad (Blood) It's Good

May 25, 2015

Zendaya, aka “Cut Throat,” being fierce as ever in “Bad Blood.”

Have you guys seen Taylor Swift‘s new music video for “Bad Blood“? (Of course you have.) With a stacked cast of mega-famous female celebrities—including DS fave Zendaya—”Bad Blood” is the ultimate in #girlpower. The words “don’t mess” come to mind.

There’s only one thing this Matrix-esque music video is missing: dance. Sure, the martial arts stunts are visually stunning; the slow-mo fight scenes look like something out of a box-office-breaking action flick. But we were so ready for T. Swift and her band of femme fatales to break out in a hardcore hip-hop combo mid-video. (I mean, we know she loves to shake it…)

Fortunately, hip-hop choreographer Tricia Miranda, aka the brilliant mind who brought us Missy Elliot’s epic Super Bowl Halftime cameo, posted a video to “Bad Blood” on her Facebook page last week. It features some of our favorite hip-hop littles and teens—Aidan Prince, Gabe De Guzman and Kaycee Rice, to name a few—and they absolutely slay it, no martial arts required. Check it out!
