Katy Perry – “Hey Hey Hey” Video

Just when you thought Katy Perry’s awkward Witness album cycle was behind us, she’s back with a video for “Hey Hey Hey.” A Max Martin co-production buoyed by digital throbs and a genuinely catchy Sia-assisted chorus, it’s actually one of the album’s better tracks, albeit saddled with a bunch of clunky if well-intentioned empowerment imagery on the order of “Marilyn Monroe in a monster truck.” Director Isaac Rentz’s video casts Perry as a Marie Antoinette type who fumbles her way through a series of ancient and modern scenarios before facing the guillotine as a consequence of standing up for herself. Perry also plays a Joan Of Arc type who rescues the other Perry’s severed head while enacting revenge on her oppressor. Watch below.

Witness is out now on Capitol, and I really hope she gets around to releasing the title track as a single because that one goes.
