Katy Perry just launched her new music video for “Wide Awake”.
Inevitable endings and new beginnings are two themes in that video of the final single from the megahit Teenage Dream album.
In the video, Perry is trapped in a labyrinth, she then discovers her lost innocence (the little girl), she is surrounded by paparazzi, she finds her Prince charming who crosses his finger behind his back before trying to kiss her, but then she takes a swing and throws him an uppercut!
Everything in that video is pretty symbolic… but it shows exactly what she went through in the past 2 years;
“It’s kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the past two years,” she said. “I just wanted to tell a story about myself kind of going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of the maze. There’s good parts and bad parts.” she continued.
In the past 2 years, Katy became one of the biggest pop stars on the planet with many #1 in the charts all over the world.
Check out her latest video under the jump and let me know your thoughts.
