Katy Perry Joins Military to Escape a Cheating Boyfriend in 'Part of Me' Video


Ditching her sugary image as a sweet California girl, the West Coast singer gets over her ex-boyfriend by joining the marines and going to a boot camp.

Katy Perry is breaking up with her boyfriend in a music video for her newest single "Part of Me". Confronting the guy after catching him flirting with another woman, she decides that she's done with the drama. Inspired by "all women are created equal, then some become marines" sticker, she chops off her shoulder-length hair and runs away to join the military.

Premiered on MTV, the Ben Mor-directed music video was shot in February at the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base in Oceanside, California. Joining real-life marines doing their basic training programs at the boot camp, Katy "learned how to flip someone," "learned how to flip them on their back," and "learned how to wrestle underwater."

According to Katy, the video visualizes "an affirmation of strength." Instead of dwelling with her broken heart, she decides to create a new path in her life. "I wanted to go the strongest route I ever could," she gushes. "Literally, I was like, 'I'm gonna join the service. I'm gonna join the Marines.' We used only Marines. For three days, I was a wannabe Marine, which was so difficult."

"Part of Me" is taken from Katy's "Teenage Dream" repackage, "Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection". The single peaked at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100. Soon after the video premiere, she tweeted, "Thank u to everyone for the love & support on the video, I have SO MUCH respect for anyone serving any role in the service after this shoot!"
