Blood was definitely spilt thanks to Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar

So I’m not out to post anything fresh it seems, because right now I want to write about the latest release from Taylor Swift: the epic release of the Bad Blood video.

I know, I know. You’re all like “But that video came out days ago… we’ve all seen it. The novelty isn’t there anymore…”
