Taylor Swift Unveils Zendaya’s Character for “Bad Blood” Music Video

Zendaya [Disney]

When appearing on “The View” last month, Zendaya was forced to play coy when the hosts shared photos of her presence on the “Bad Blood” music video set.

Following a Friday morning Tweet from Taylor Swift, Zendaya will no longer need to take that approach. She can embrace her involvement in the video, which debuts as part of the May 17 Billboard Music Awards.

Per the attached poster, the “KC Undercover” star will play “Cut-Throat” in the upcoming video.

Cut-Throat is the third character revealed from the video. On Thursday, Swift introduced her own Catastrophe and model Lily Aldridge’s Frostbyte.
