Katy Perry - E.T. Video

LaurenBlair

Have you seen Kay Perry’s new music video for “E.T.”? I just watched it and I’m not sure what to think.  I’ve been seeing her alien like posters around the city and after watching this music video I feel like Katy Perry is copying Lady Gaga.

Watch the video here.

What do you guys think?

Don’t get me wrong, I love the song and the video is pretty cool (I really like the end) but I’m not sure it’s really a Katy Perry original.

Gaga-esque

Yeah I've stopped and watched the video a couple times and I love the make-up effects on her and the song is a hot track. But it does feel like she's trying a little too hard to be slightly edgy, bizarre like Gaga. However, I don't think she's the only pop artist doing this lately. I think they're all trying to step their game up to compete with Gaga. Which I understand to a point, but you should still try to stick to your roots and background. I kind of miss the fun and flirty style Katy use to do. (ex: I kissed a girl)

The Make Up Was Amazing!

I agree, I miss the fun and flirty Katy! I know that the cupcake boobs were similar to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance fireworks but I liked that Katy made it her own and it had a totally different feel to the video. This one is just too similar for me not to notice. You're also right that she isn't the only one doing it - Rhianna started getting wild and pushing the boundaries as soon as Lady Gaga started to get really popular and now look where she is... yikes.

E.T Video

Its not about being like Gaga. Look up on google symbolism of the ET.T video. A lot of videos these days are rick in symbolism, whether or not you interpret it as such or if thats what they "mean" with it, I guess sometimes it's up for the viewer to decide.

I have to agree

I have to agree with everyone that the makeup effects is AMAZING. I was mesmerized. I guess for this song Katy Perry had to do something edgy like that to keep up with the song. I do think she is trying something new and all artists are like including Beyonce and Christina Aguilera. I missed the old Katy Perry too but I also like this one. I guess we'll just have to see what Katy does next!

I was confused in that video! I did not understand the story, but the makeup artist did an awesome job!
