Katy Perry, 27, debuted her latest music video on Wednesday night on MTV. The video for 'Part of Me,' which is just over 4 minutes long, features Perry as a woman who leaves her unfaithful boyfriend and enlists in the marines.
There were no bright colors or bubblegum pop antics in this video. Instead, Perry and the other marines where in military fatigues and combat boots.
"This song feels like one of the most aggressive songs I've ever put out," Perry told MTV News. "It's kind of like an affirmation of strength, so I wanted to go the strongest route I possibly could, so I had this idea - what if I joined the service."
Instead of dance rehearsal, Perry endured 3 days of boot camp to gear up for the shoot. She had learned how to properly eat military MRE (meals ready to eat), wrestle underwater, and flip and attacker. During the actual shoot, real marines were used, not actors.
"This music video, as much as I was sore and exhausted, I was so educated on people in the service who I've always respected, but this time the respect goes beyond and above anything I could've imagined," Perry said.
"The stuff that they go through, the loyalties and strengths that they all possess, it seems like they are seriously, not to sound weird, but it's seriously the heart of America," she continued.
Perry's husband of 14 months, Russel Brand, filed for divorce in December. Many are assuming that this song is a poke at her soon-to-be ex-husband. One of the lines to the song read: "Now look at me, I'm sparkling/A firework, a dancing flame/You won't ever put me out again."
With this fierce song, Brand may want to keep his distance from Perry--she's tough.
