Bitch, please! You didn’t actually think that Katy Perry was done milking Teenage Dream just yet, did you?
The Adidas spokeswoman is set to follow-up her chart-topping smash “Part of Me” with a new single, the dreamy “Wide Awake”. The luscious pop ballad was helmed by the unbeatable team of Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Bonnie McKee, and is the only completely new song that Perry bothered to record for her recently-released repackaged album, The Complete Confection.
A 3D music video for the single was shot over three days earlier this month, which will be used to tie-in with Katy’s upcoming Pepsi-sponsored 3D documentary-concert film, Katy Perry: Part of Me.
I shaded “Part of Me” at first, but then caved in and got obsessed with it, so I’m not even going to bother resisting “Wide Awake”. I already love it, and just like all Katy Perry songs, it has a shitload of hit potential. But seriously, can we please get a fitting music video for this song? I’m not interested in seeing Katy with a rainbow Mohawk doing an Irish jig on a flying didgeridoo while inserting liquorice and other assorted sweets into her vagina. Just give us something that matches the damn song.
