From the costumes to the wigs Katy Perry is known for being versatile with her image, but I don’t think anyone has ever seen her quite like this. She introduces us to her “insane friends” in “World’s Worst Birthday Party Entertainers,” a teaser video for her next single “Birthday.”
She transforms into several laughable characters: Goldie The Dancer, Yosef Shulem The MC, Kriss The Clown, Ace The Animal Trainer, and Princess Mandee. Together they form the last individuals you would want to see at any birthday party. Creepy or hilarious? You be the judge.
“Birthday” is the fourth single from her album Prism. The video is set to premiere tomorrow (4/24) and she’s been hyping up the release in every way possible. Monday she described her video for the single as “the most insane one I’ve ever done” to her 52 million+ followers on Twitter. Earlier this month she posted a lyric video, which of course sticks with the birthday theme as it is centered around celebratory sweets.
Major props to the makeup and wardrobe teams responsible for making Katy Perry completely unrecognizable. She’s known for pushing the envelope and some are calling her stereotypical portrayal of Yosef offensive. (Could this be a repeat of the “Dark Horse” controversy?) One thing is clear- Katy’s no one-trick pony.
