Watch Katy Perry’s New “Wide Awake” Music Video — She Punches Prince Charming in the Face!
Katy Perry’s life isn’t exactly a “Teenage Dream” — and she wants us to know it.
The reigning pop princess emphasizes this in the just-released music video for her new single, “Wide Awake,” going from bouncing around in a bubblegum pink wig and sparkly eye shadow to sitting all alone in her dressing room.
"It's kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the last two years," Katy tells MTV. "I just wanted to tell a story about myself kind of going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of a maze. There's good parts and bad parts."
Transported to a dark and dangerous new dimension, where she’s joined by a cute mini-me, the suddenly purple-haired singer takes on an edgier goth look. Katy rushes to escape the maze before eventually making her way to a happy fairy-tale kingdom.
