Taylor Swift and her legendary squad definitely have mad love for "Bad Blood."

To commemorate the song's success – and to lure VMA voters – Swift decided to share behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot on Instagram. The singer, 25, who received nine MTV Video Music Award nominations last week, posted a clip of supermodel Lily Aldridge (a.k.a. Frostbyte) looking totally fierce and fantastic.

She captioned: "Bad Blood got a 6TH WEEK at #1 at pop radio! To celebrate, I'll be posting some behind the scenes clips of our video shoot. First up: Frostbyte."



In the clip, the two gal pals are seen drifting across the floor and flipping in the air with intense weapons at hand. "You got so low, you went down like this with your back," Swift said to Aldridge in the video. The "Shake It Off" hitmaker appeared to be very impressed with her friend's deadly moves.

Lily shared: "To get to do this in work, to play and be these awesome strong women that we are … it's so much fun."



Next up: Serayah."My character name is Dilemma … I punch through a wall!" the Empire star says in her clip.

"So I'm ready..." -Dilemma @serayah Vote for VMAs! Link is in my bio.
