Katy Perry has said time and again lately that she’s not perfect and that her life is not a fairy tale. This is the theme of her “Wide Awake” video.
It starts off with KP wrapping up the shoot for “California Gurls,” before being transported to an alternate reality by a younger version of herself.
Take a look at it below:
“It’s kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the last two years,” Perry explained to 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.”
Is one of those bad parts an allusion to Russell Brand?
She’ll probably tell you it doesn’t, but at one point of the music video, our fair Katy Perry meets – and decks – her Prince Charming. Fitting.
