Taylor Swift performs during The 1989 World Tour at Tokyo Dome on May 5, 2015 in Tokyo, Japan. 

The countdown is on! Taylor Swift will premiere her "Bad Blood" music video on May 17 at the start of the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

The singer announced the news on Instagram on May 7 when she shared a poster for the visual in which she'll play a character called Catastrophe. (Cat-tastrophe, get it?) The black-and-white poster features Swift in a leather jacket and fierce make-up and gives off a slight Tarantino vibe.

The tagline reads "Band-aids don't fix bullet holes," a nod to the song's lyrics. She reportedly shot the Jospeh Kahn-directed video back in April. Kahn also directed her video for "Blank Space."
