After Taylor Swift enlisted the help of nearly everyone in her phone book for the “Bad Blood” music video, we’re always on the hunt for Swift friend cameos in all her work. You may not have noticed, but in the dancer formation for her new video for “Look What You Made Me Do” is her friend Todrick Hall.
Yep, that’s not just a generic lineup of backup dancers, that is THE Todrick Hall on Taylor’s right.
If you don’t know Hall, he’s a YouTube musical theater whiz. He’s known for his Disney parodies and otherwise opulent musicals.
He’s also good friends with Taylor Swift.
This is from November 2016 when Todrick was starring in Kinky Boots on Broadway and Swift came out to support.
Currently, we only have this teaser from the “Look What You Made Me Do” video.
The full thing is set to debut during this weekend’s Video Music Awards on MTV.
This song comes after Swift seemingly went into hiding, wiped her social media presence, and began to rebuild with videos of snakes and an album cover that introduced us to a new kind of Swift.
The new song is clearly Swift’s revenge memo that she is not playing around anymore, with biting lyrics like:
“But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time/Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time/I’ve got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined/I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!”
We are definitely intrigued and looking forward to seeing what Hall will do in the video.
