I've been jamming out to Katy Perry's E.T. pretty much every day for the past forever. The song is alluring, hypnotizing, and plain out makes me feel all sexualized and a playfully raw kind of naughty. So you bet that I was fervidly waiting for her to drop the video for it. And did KP deliver? You betcha! Get ready for some alien induced illumination of pure cosmic extacy!
I've never seen Katy like this before and to be honest I didn't even know she had it in her to be this glorious. I know that in 2 seconds the Gaga "Born this way" comparisons will ensue but gangstahs, Katy stayed and connected her visuals with her song -- something Caca never does (I still don't know what Alejandro and Nazism have to do with eachother??). The story line is spectacular and the creation of Katy's celestial-being is sensational, dazzling, and extremely captivating. I feel like it was the perfect amount of creative visual splendor; it was electrifying enough to take me on an intergalactic journey o f bliss without being "too creative" (Gaga, I'm looking at you!), overbearing and full of WTF moments (besides the Vogue product placement, but hey KP's gotta pay them bills!). Oh, and Shaun Ross as the extraterrestrial being??? Genius move!!!
All I need right now is one of those planetary cosmos Christopher Kane shirts so I can play this video on full blast and pretend I'm Shaun Ross. Yes, I have the hots for alien Katy Perry. Seriously, if this is what Scientologists believe in and can confirm to me that their cosmic "friends" look like alien KP, then consider me BFF's with Tom Cruise!!!
