It’s been one month since Taylor Swift released the star-studded music video to her Pride anthem “You Need to Calm Down.” Featuring stars like Adam Lambert, Ellen DeGeneres, RuPaul and so many more, the cameo-filled video became an instant phenomenon. There were so many celebrities, in fact, that Taylor is still giving you new glimpses behind the curtain of what went down while shooting her video. 

On Wednesday (July 18), in an exclusive with People magazine, Taylor Swift gave fans a third look at what happened during the video shoot in a behind-the-scenes video. This time, the video focuses on the inhabitants of Swift’s rainbow colored trailer park, including Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, YouTube star Hannah Hart and model Dexter Mayfield. 

The video opens with Swift explaining to Hart how involved she would be in the shot, much to Hart’s delight. “I literally thought I was gonna get a pan from a camera for just a moment, so all this sounds amazing,” Hart says with a laugh. “I was expecting to be, like, fourth row. Like, ‘actually, Ms. Hart, could you turn around?’”

In another moment, as the group poses for a photograph, Swift comments on how good Rippon looks in his mesh crop-top. “You look phenomenal,” she says, in disbelief. “I love that your nipples are making a cameo. That’s a separate cameo.”

Of course, Taylor’s good friend and frequent collaborator Todrick Hall makes another appearance in this video, wearing his long heart-covered robe. When Taylor asked him how he was feeling, Hall responded saying, "This is maybe the best I’ve felt since the day I came out.”
