Katy Perry has released the highly anticipated music video for “Wide Awake”, her final single from Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection (available now)
The video begins after the “California Gurls” shoot, with Katy removing her wig, staring into a mirror, and seeing a goth, Katy staring back. Katy pays homage to all sorts of fairy tales (“Snow White”, Alice In Wonderland”, etc), as well as an homage to one of her best music video’s “Firework”.
The best part would be when Katy punches “prince charming” right in the face. It’s pretty obvious that it’s a jab towards her ex-husband Russel Brand & all the other two-timing “Prince Charmings” out there, but it’s a great twist on the typical fairy-tale ending.
The video in general is pretty EPIC. Yes, at times it may seem a bit cheesy, but it brings the whole Teenage Dream cycle full circle. Definitely worth watching, check it out below & let us know what you think!
