MUSIC VIDEO #9: Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg: ‘California Gurls’

The much anticipated video for Katy Perry’s current US #1 California Gurls has finally surfaced. Rather than go with a literal video, Perry is thinking outside the box with a Candyland board game theme meets The Wizard Of Oz.

It’s no secret that I have a hard soft spot for Katy Perry so I naturally enjoyed this fun, cute video. Katy’s ‘quirkiness’, you’re either going to love or hate, and many will complain about her blatant selling off sex in this video (appearing naked on the cloud, whipped cream gun bra etc.) but as a red-blooded male I have no complaints. My personal highlight of the video is where Katy waves at the walking gummy bears, only for it to show her the middle finger, resulting in a hilariously camp over-exaggerated expression of offence from Ms. Perry. I also think the final scene with Snoop buried in the sand alongside the California Gurls would make a great desktop wallpaper.

    It’s a weird cameo from Snoop. That intro line alone freaks me out!

    But speaking as a fellow red-blooded male, I’ve got to concur with you, Katy ticks all the right boxes – great figure, lovely eyes, the ability to pull a multitude of wacky facial expressions…and we know she likes to dress up.

    The song’s a definite change in direction for her, but a bubblegum pop song doesn’t hurt her credibility. Remember that one time, when she tried to do a ballad, and nobody cared? Katy needs to stick to the fun stuff, we like her light-hearted, quirky, kitsch and camp.
