Taylor Swift Shares Moonmen With Her ‘Bad Blood’ Squad
At this year's MTV Video Music Awards, Taylor Swift was nominated a total of ten times and took home four Moonmen, most notably the ones for Video of the Year ("Bad Blood") and Best Female Video ("Blank Space").
But Swift isn't one to just receive Moonmen; rather, as Billboard reports, she also likes to give them out to her closest friends. On Thursday night (November 19), Swift held a small get-together at her home in New York to celebrate her "Bad Blood" squad, which consists of a slew of impressive women: Selena Gomez; fashion models Lily Aldrige, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Kaia Gerber, Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, Karlie Kloss; actresses Serayah, Mariska Hargitay, Ellen Pompeo, and Hailee Steinfeld; and even Swift's own cat Olivia Benson (named after Hargitay's character on Law and Order: SVU).
The outpouring of gratitude from her squad was both genuine and heart warming. Hargitay—who apparently could not attend the get-together—shared her thanks via Instagram, saying "So #honored and #thankful to have been part of this #masterful project. And though I have a #MoonMan of my own, that video was all you, baby. #MadLove for #BadBlood."
Gomez's thank-you was short and sweet but just as moving: "Thank you for making us and all beautiful women feel beautiful."
After handing out her Moonmen, Taylor Swift continued the party with another surprise, this time in honor of Lily Aldridge's birthday (which was actually on November 15). Billboard reports that Swift and Gomez teamed up to serenade Aldridge with a special girls' night birthday song/performance, and Swift even personally made the Victoria's Secret Angel her own chocolate espresso cake. #squadgoals
