Taylor Swift has shared a video of herself falling to the ground after plowing through a wall on the set of her new music video for single Bad Blood.

The 25-year-old singer debuted the highly anticipated music promo at the Billboard Music Awards last Sunday.

And on Monday Taylor shared a clip of an outtake from the video’s set, in which she is seen plowing through a solid wall only to fall flat on her face.

“Go to 1:42 of the #BadBloodMusicVideo to see the take where I got it right. This, however, was the first take. #stuntFAIL (sic),” she wrote to fans on Instagram in a caption attached to the footage.

The stunning star blasts through the wall and after her accident, the director excitedly yells, “Cut, cut!”

But in the clip Taylor ensures cast and crew she did not injure herself by saying: “Yeah, I forgot to keep running, but I’m fine”.

Taylor has been teasing her new song Bad Blood, which features Kendrick Lamar, for several weeks. Ahead of the music video debut, she kept on releasing promotional posters featuring her famous friends. Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne, Lena Dunham, Kendrick, Hailee Steinfeld, Lily Aldridge, Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez all appear in the star-studded video for the track.

The country-turned-pop singer scooped a grand total of eight trophies including the coveted Best Female and Top Billboard 200 Album prizes for her record 1989 at the Billboard Music Awards.

Bad Blood is the fourth single from 1989, her fifth studio album. According to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, the LP has sold 8.6 million copies worldwide as of February 2015.
