Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' Video Gets SNL Parody With Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Amy Schumer
Bruce Springsteen was Saturday Night Live's musical guest alongside a surprise appearance from Paul McCartney, but it's Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Aidy Bryant and Amy Schumer who are making headlines for their parody of Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" music video.
Bryant played the celebrity journalist interviewing the Fey and Poehler for their actual upcoming movie, Sisters, which they are promoting this week. Bryant suggests the two must have a whole squad of "models and starlets" to help them juggle everything in their lives like T-Swift's own crew.
Rocking the nicknames Powder Keg and Short Fuse, Fey and Poehler launched into an explanation of their squad including nannies, the woman who remembers their order at the nearby diner, a guy who returned a wallet once, Fey's mammogram technician and the gynecologist the two apparently share.
However, it was Bryant who steals the show musically with a Niki Minaj-style rap that gave the song some much needed structure and melody. The concept is great, but up until Bryant's boisterous verse, the song is pretty cringe inducing as the two stars sing off key, erratically yell and fail to stick to the melody of the original song at all.
Still, it's worth it for the guest appearances from the likes of Gayle King, Robert Downey Sr. and the female comedian who rocked 2015 -- Amy Schumer. In the video Fey suggests Schumer owes her a favor and that's the only reason she's on the shoot. They also attempt to do a slow motion walking and Schumer threatens to sue everyone when an explosion goes off that the squad was not prepared for.
Watch the video below.
Swift's actual squad is on display today in an Apple Music exclusive movie that gives fans highlights from her 1989 World Tour complete with guest performance, back stage interviews and rehearsals.
