I don't know about you, but it seems like the pop star is finally getting back at her X.

On Sunday, May 17th, Taylor Swift debuted her newest music video for her song "Bad Blood" featuring Kendrick Lamar.

And let's just get this out there: the video is AMAZING.

The video is filled with actors, musicians, and models alike who seriously kill it in their badassery.

Taylor has been teasing fans with posters of the cast on her Instagram.

One of those leather-clad ladies was Ellie Goulding, aka Destructa X.

Goulding was dating Swift's best friend Ed Sheeran, who seemed to write the song "Don't" off of his latest album X about her after Goulding reportedly cheated on him.

Watching the video, you might notice something familiar. Could the X on the bazooka also be a reference to Ed Sheeran's album X?

Hm. It sorta seems that Ellie is finally getting back at Ed for his hit song about her!

It could easily be just a coincidence that her character's name is Destructa X, but it is way more fun to think that Taylor may have helped Ellie demonstrate what she ~really~ thought about Ed's song with a not-so-subtle easter egg.

No matter what you think the X really stands for, this video and all the females in it (and Kendrick!) are fierce!

Get it, ladies! #UterusesBeforeDuderuses #BitchesBeforeSnitches #OvariesBeforeBrovaries

  1. Do you think the X on Ellie Goulding's bazooka is meant to be for Ed Sheeran's album X?

    Coincidence or not?
