A week or 2 ago, Patrick gave us a sneak peek of Katy Perry’s new music video for her single Part Of Me. The preview showed us Katy, dressed as a marine, looking ready to kick some ass and take some names. While I wasn’t sure what to expect from the preview alone, the full video has been released and I absolutely love it.
What feels like a total departure from her cutesy, storyline like videos, Katy goes full-out Marine in her latest clip. Katy shot the video with director Ben Mor at the USMC’s Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California in February. Katy dons traditional marine gear and gets down and dirty with the best of them.
The video starts with Katy seeing her boyfriend mack on another girl at work. After confronting him, she storms out and heads to the gas station (as one does). After seeing an ad for the marines on a cork board, she heads to the bathroom to chop her hair off. She trades in her skinny jeans for army boots and the rest is history.
