For a girl who wrote a song about the disillusionment of real-life love not panning out the way it does on the big screen (“Not Like The Movies”), Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” video is a picture-perfect look at young love. Or at least young lust. Or at least the way it should look in teen movies.
In her “Teenage Dream” video, Perry goes cruising with the top down, takes her top off to get busy in a black bra in what looks like a pay-by-the-hour motel room with actor Josh Kloss (remember him from “The O.C.”?), and has the sexiest pool party since Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” video. (Or Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston’s “Eenie Meenie,” depending on your perspective). “Teenage Dream” was filmed in Katy Perry’s hometown of Santa Barbara.
Watch this sneak peek of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” video, directed by Yoann Lemoine. And watch the full-length video when it premieres on MTV on Tuesday, August 10.
