LGBTQ Celebrities Take the Crown in Taylor Swift's New Video

"Truly the most magical experience & on top of it all I got to share it with some of my favorite ladies!"

"You Need to Calm Down" is off to chart-topping success and is wracking up what may be record-breaking views on YouTube.

She included two photos from the video of herself dressed in a burger costume embracing Taylor dressed as some french fries.

The ladies are there to help illustrate Swift's lyric about female comparisons. "/ Sunshine on the street at the parade", she sings.

Adele joins Spice Girls backstage before final Wembley Stadium show
Brown, also known as Scary Spice, has described their Wembley Stadium gigs as one of the most important moments of her life. The Spice Girls' 13-date reunion tour wrapped Saturday after making its way through the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The new song, which is being released during Pride Month in the States, is the second single from her newly announced album, Lover.

It features a whole host of famous celebrities including Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Lambert, Ryan Reynolds, Laverne Cox, Dexter Mayfield, Ciara, RuPaul, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Justin Mikita, Billy Porter, Todrick Hall, Hayley Kiyoko, Chester Lockhart, Adam Rippon, and Hannah Hart, Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Tan France.

On Monday after the video's release, the hitmaker took to Instagram to praise her "amazing" co-stars and said she is "so grateful to everyone who lent their time to this video". "The #YNTCDmusicvideo is out!" The anti-Gay protesters are the only non-colorful things in the video and a collection of drab, toothless people are depicted as those who fight against gay marriage and gay rights. Please celebrate by supporting their work, following them, and going to see them perform. Close to 200,000 people have already signed the petition. Earlier this month, Swift donated to GLAAD while also writing 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.
