Taylor Swift released a new single called, “You Need To Calm Down” which was released last Friday and the music video is out NOW!!

Taylor’s message behind the video is to be a symbol of support and pride for those in the LGBTQ community. The video features many celebrities like, Ellen DeGeneres, Ryan Reynolds, Laverne Cox, Dexter Mayfield, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Ciara, RuPaul, Jonathan Van Ness, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Justin Mikita, Bobby Berk, Tan France, Billy Porter, Adam Lambert, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Chester Lockhart, Adam Rippon, Katy Perry, and Hannah Hart.

The timing of the music video release could not be more perfect. Taylor, you are amazing.

Meaning Behind the Lyrics

The song begins with Taylor addressing someone who’s been talking smack about her behind her back.

She sings in the opening lyrics that, “You are somebody that I don’t know, but you’re taking shots at me like it’s Patrón, and I’m just like damn, it’s 7 a.m. Say it in the street, that’s a knock-out, but you say it in a tweet, that’s a cop out, and I’m just like, hey, ‘Are you OK?”

In the video, she’s living in what looks like a trailer park and hangs out by the pool in all pink, looking fabulous and free.

The ending of the video is iconic because it shows how the drama between Taylor and Katy Perry stopped.

This video comes after years of an alleged dispute that seemingly ended years ago with an “olive branch” social media post between the two stars and then another post this year. Now, any feud the two ever had is clearly over as the duo dressed as burgers and fries, respectively, and hugging and dancing in their costumes.

Pride Month

Taylor purposely released this single during Pride Month, and featured in her lyrics video, she gives a shoutout to GLAAD singing: ” Why are you mad when you can be GLAAD?”

As we all know, Taylor is a giving and generous person. She made a massive donation to GLAAD earlier this month. Taylor also wrote to urge Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander to support the Equality Act, which would protect LGBTQ Americans from discrimination in employment, housing and other public accommodations. Even when it’s not Swiftmas, Taylor continues to give all year round!

The Importance

Above everything else, the song is a jam intended to express support for the LGBTQ community and equality. While protesters are slamming same-sex marriage, Swift takes the high road and simply celebrates love with Ferguson, Porter and others.

The video features some very amazing neighbors, such as Hall, Cox, Ferguson and others, some surrounding the “Modern Family” star as he marries his husband, Mikita. Yes, they got married in the video. How awesome is that?
