Katy and Kanye go all Battleship Galactica in the Official VIDEO Premiere for “E.T.”
The newlywed goes through a drastic makeover for the video, appearing as an alien-like woman with the help of glowing face makeup and an alien-like hairstyle. A far cry from the cupcake brassieres and skin tight booty shorts she sported in last year’s “California Gurls” video, her skin is painted a lavender shade of purple and her face is made-up to look like an out-of-this-world extraterresterial — all the while sporting a very unique head dress that just accentuates the whole ensemble. Perry is seen in later scenes floating through outer space and later approaching a broken robot.
“E.T.” — the fourth single off Perry’s Grammy-nominated album Teenage Dream — rocketed to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart this week. The disc is the one of the few albums in pp history to produce four No. 1 hit singles: “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “California Gurls,” and now “E.T.” The last time that happened was when diva Mariah Carey released her debut albuback in 1991.
Katy’s just pleased her fans have rallied behind her latest project:
“With ‘Teenage Dream’ the record in whole, I knew I wanted to give so many different flavors, so many different ideas, and just make a different ‘movie’ for each song. I feel like I’ve done that,” the star recently said. “I am so thrilled that ‘E.T.’ has landed at No. 1. I want to thank all the fans who contributed to this amazing feat and radio, which has been an essential part of my continued existence. I truly appreciate all the support of my creative twists and turns.”
