Taylor Swift is no longer a nightmare dressed like a daydream, she's a full-on catastrophe.

The 25-year-old pop star will be releasing the music video for her latest single, "Bad Blood" on May 17, and to build up the hype, she introduced us to her alter-ego, "Catastrophe" via a movie poster on Twitter and Instagram.

The black and white "Sin City"-esque promo features Swift looking fierce and badass in a leather jacket with dark makeup and a vampy lip.

Have a look for yourself:

The video, which is set to premiere at the 2015 Billboard Awards, was directed by Joseph Kahn, who is responsible for Taylor's "Blank Space" video (clearly he's all for playing up TayTay's "crazy" persona). It will also star Lily Aldridge, Zendaya, Cara Delevingne, Hayley Williams and Kendrick Lamar, because as we all know, the "Style" singer has lots of friends in high places.

"Bad Blood" is rumoured to be about Swift's feud with Katy Perry and has some pretty intense lyrics such as "Still got scars on my back from your knife" and "Band-aids don't fix bullet holes." All we have to say is, if the rumours are true, watch out, Katy!
