Mariska Hargitay Brings “Justice” to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” Music Video

The “Bad Blood” music video officially possesses connections to both of Taylor Swift’s cats.

Earlier Thursday, Swift confirmed that Ellen Pompeo will appear as “Luna” in the celebrity-heavy video. One of Swift’s cats is named after Dr. Meredith Grey, whom Pompeo plays on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Thursday evening, the singer-songwriter confirmed that actress Mariska Hargitay is also involved in the video. Hargitay is the actress behind “Law & Order: SVU” character Olivia Benson. Swift’s other cat is named after that TV detective.

Hargitay, fittingly, will play “Justice” in the video.

In addition to Hargitay’s Justice and Pompeo’s Luna, other confirmed characters include Swift’s Catastrophe, Lily Aldridge’s Frostbyte, Zendaya’s Cut-Throat, Hayley Williams’ The Crimson Curse, Gigi Hadid’s Slay-Z, Ellie Goulding’s Destructa X, Hailee Steinfeld’s The Trinity, Lena Dunham’s Lucky Fiori, Kendrick Lamar’s Welvin da Great, Karlie Kloss’ Knockout, Serayah’s Dilemma, Jessica Alba’s Domino and Martha Hunt’s HomeSlice.

The video premieres during Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
