Taylor Swift has made a career out of putting her life into her art. Sometimes, that includes putting her friends directly into her songs and videos.


In 2008, Taylor put her longtime BFF, Abigail, in her “Picture to Burn” video.

Abigail also appeared in Taylor’s 2009 “Fifteen” video, which is fitting, since she inspired a memorable line in the song: “Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind.”


Taylor cast her real-life best friends in her 2013 “22” video, including Gossip Girlalum Jessica Szohr.

In 2015, Taylor enlisted her entire extended squad for her “Bad Blood” video.


In her “Look What You Made Me Do” video, Taylor appeared as herself from videos past—including “You Belong With Me.” This time, however, she included some of her famous friends’ names on the Junior Jewels shirt. Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez, Gigi Hadid, and Ed Sheeran all got shoutouts.


Taylor's music video for Look What You Made Me Do will be premiered at the VMAs on Sunday!
