The estranged wife of Russell Brand is going to release the music video in full on March 21.
Katy Perry is going to ditch her sophisticated look in upcoming music video for her latest single "Part of Me". Channeling her inner tough soldier, she wears a full army gear and conceals her beautiful face with camouflaged paint in its official teaser.
The soon-to-be-released music video was filmed on a military base earlier this year. It's going to premiere in full on Wednesday, March 21 on MTV, and will be preceded by a 30-minute interview with Katy on MTV.com.
"Part of Me" is taken from "Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection", which is due in the United States on March 27. After the breakup single was showcased at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, words ran rampant that it's an ode to her doomed relationship with Russell Brand.
Katy, however, denied it. "I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everybody is like 'God, it sounds so current'," she said. "Some people that I work with were like, 'You should just say you wrote it a couple of weeks ago.' I'm like 'I'm not a [bleep], I'm going to tell the truth'."
"I wrote it two years ago when I was writing and recording 'Teenage Dream', [but] it didn't feel right on the record ... Sometimes I'm like, 'Am I living in 'The Truman Show?' Because I sit down and I write all these songs at once, all these emotions and feelings and thoughts, and then it just feels like sometimes I'm caught in this movie where my life is paralleling my music."
