Taylor Swift has released her new song, "You Need to Calm Down", and the video features a star-studded collection of the singer's friends and a surprising Katy Perry cameo.

The anti-hate anthem's music video boasts an incredible cast including [inhales deeply] Katy Perry (drama well and truly over), Ellen Degeneres, Ryan Reynolds, Laverne Cox, RuPaul, Ciara, Adam Rippon, Todrick Hall, Dexter Mayfield, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita, Adam Lambert, Hanna Hart, Hayley Kiyoko, Billy Porter, Chester Lockhart, Queer Eye angels Tan France, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski and Bobby Berk.

Toward the end of the clip, Perry appears wearing the burger dress she sported at this year's Met Gala, and hugs it out with Swift, who wears a french fries costume.

While talking to Apple Music's Beats 1 about the new song's idea, Taylor said she had seen a lot of negativity going around with respect to the LGBTQ community and there were people who just kept adding to the negative attitude being thrown at this community.

The Grammy victor began sharing hints about the video on social media Thursday night. "Feels good @taylorswift", she captioned it.

It wasn't that Finch wasn't working hard. "I think Smithy obviously rated Heady's bowling a little bit more, and that's fine. Steve Smith has found his groove in the middle of the order and Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey are the finishing act.

Swift begins in a colorful trailer, which she leaves before it begins burning down. "It costs zero dollars to not step on our gowns".

Taylor also ends the video with a card asking fans to sign her petition in support of the Equality Act.

"You Need to Calm Down" is the second single from Swift's upcoming LP Lover, following the Brendon Urie-assisted "Me". The album - Swift's seventh - will have 18 tracks and is due to drop August 23. "I think I've been, like, sworn to secrecy".
