Katy Perry video for ide Awakeis autobiographical. Whereas the song, which references the troublesome process of letting go of a relationship (even though she says it not about Russell Brand), the video reveals us Katy then and Katy now, as she straddles the line between the light and the darkish.
It actually metaphorical, as we see her in numerous phases and at different points in her life. It one-half graphic novel, one-half fairytale and one-half Katy Perry life story, come together and to life on display screen.
The ide Awakevideo begins with Perry filming the alifornia Gurlsvideo, laying in a pink cotton sweet cloud while carrying a frosty lavender wig. She grabs a gown and heads to her dressing room and de-wigs. She stares into the mirror and gentle quickly switches to darkish and fluff turns into critical.
A gothic-styled Katy of the previous then appears on display screen, and we don imply Katy as Katheryn Hudson the teenager or younger woman. It fairytale-model Katy, with black and purple hair and crimson lips, standing in entrance of stone wall whereas holding a lantern. She from another era, trying a bit like a personality from now White,in perhaps a nod to Perry old, romantic soul. She grabs a strawberry and chomps on the forbidden fruit as a star bursts from her chest. Is that Katy Perry, pop superstar? May very well be.
The following model of Perry we meet is slightly lady in pink, who presses her fingers in opposition to that of the older Katy, who’s then in a wheelchair, with strawberry in hand, being pushed down a hospital corridor by her youthful self. It reminds us of Lady Gaga institutionalized stint in the 楳arry the Nightvideo.
The pair bursts into a world of flowers and a Prince Charming perched on a unicorn (!!!) greets them. But no, grownup Katy and the Prince don journey off into the sunset. She cleans his clock with a nasty punch to the face.
Before the video ends, mini Katy places something into elder Katy hand. When she opens it, it a butterfly and subsequent factor we all know, we’e back in her dressing room and then on the stage.
