Both Katy Perry and frequent writing collaborator Bonnie McKee have teased that Perry’s upcoming studio album, Prism, will feature a more mature sound. To drive the point even further, the 28-year-old singer is seen burning her Teenage Dream blue wig in a video teaser for her new single “Roar.” It’s about time. I couldn’t stand that wig.
In the teaser titled “Burning Baby Blue,” Katy stands expressionless in a black room before setting fire to the hairpiece. It’s all very Fairuza Balk circa The Craft. At the end of a clip, “Roar” and its release date are shown in an animal print. I suppose this is Katy’s way of saying she’s transitioning from playful kitty cat to ferocious tiger. Check out the clip below.
