The Isaac Rentz-directed music video finds the 'Swish Swish' songstress getting ready for an unwanted date with Prince Piggy as she imagines herself as Joan of Arc.
Directed by Isaac Rentz, the candy-colored visuals opens with Katy, who is dressed in colorful gowns and a gravity-defying wig, getting ready for an unwanted date with Prince Piggy. While preparing for the date, she imagines herself as feminist icon Joan of Arc, slashing the prince with her sword.
During her date, Katy finds herself unable to hold her disgust with the fat prince, leading her to slap Prince Piggy when he is about to kiss her during their dance. And of course, he is angry about it and orders his guard to chop Katy's head off. At the end of the clip, the Joan of Arc version of Katy comes to save her and kills the prince.
"Hey Hey Hey" is one of the tracks off Katy's fifth studio album "Witness", which made its way out to stores on June 9. Taking to her Instagram account shortly after the release of the clip, 33-year-old Katy told her fans, known as KatyCats, that she dedicated the video to them.
Along with a clip of herself playing the feminist warrior, she wrote in the caption, "I'm reflecting on a year that has redefined what winning means to me. And the definition of winning for me this year was simply happiness and gratitude."
She went on expressing her gratitude to all of her fans before telling them to think of the music video as "a glam little stocking from me to you. 'Hey Hey Hey' is one of my favorite songs from 'Witness' and for me, it embodies the fighting spirit I always want you to be able to find within yourself, and to see in me."
Hiya. I'm writing you from Miami, prepping my last Witness: The Tour show of 2017. I'm reflecting on a year that has redefined what winning means to me. And the definition of winning for me this year was simply happiness and gratitude. This year has made me more appreciative than ever for my listeners, my KatyCats - whether you've been with me since "I Kissed A Girl" or if you only started to "Swish Swish" with me. I'm humbled that you still give me your nights out to connect with you live all over the world and remind me of the place in your hearts that you hold for all these songs. After a year of peaks and valleys (remember, it's all a journey), I wanted to end 2017 with a fun, triumphant piece of pop candy. Just think of it as a glam little stocking stuffer from me to you. "Hey Hey Hey" is one of my favorite songs from "Witness" and for me, it embodies the fighting spirit I always want you to be able to find within yourself, and to see in me. So ho, ho, ho; and hey, hey, hey; and happy holidays. Yours, Katy P.S. Link in profile.
