You’re burning up, grl.
Katy Perry has always had a gift for themes and aesthetics. From her candy-coated “California Gurls” era to her goofball “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” video to her “Welcome To The Jungle”-themed “Roar” clip, I think we can all concur that Ms. Perry knows how to a.) dream up a visually memorable video and b.) hire an AWESOME production designer.
In the MTV First premiere of her “Unconditionally” video (aka that soaring Prism ballad whose lyric video recently gave us all the #crys and #feels), Katy once again outdoes herself with intricate, over-the-top costumes (think: every ball gown from “Anna Karenina“), wildlife (owls!!), the elements (FIRE! SNOW! EXPLODING FLOWERS!), and time period-appropriate choreography. And here we thought she wouldn’t be able to raise the bar (Maypole?) any higher than her high-flying EMA performance.
So, since we’re just that visually stunned by Katy’s guilded, old-world clip, let’s pay homage with our favorite newfangled medium: GIFs! Check out “Unconditionally” below, and stay tuned for a post-video MTV First special with guest host Iggy Azalea!
