Katy Perry’s pop live in videos is nothing short of amazing. Except for the slightly wonky ‘Part Of Me’, every video she has released so far has been very much above average, oftentimes incredible and not always for the same reasons: ‘The One That Got Away’ had a plot, was emotionally effective and had great photography; ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)’ is the funniest, with its 90’s pop stars, Glee cameos and the creation of Kathy Beth Terry, an Ugly Katy character that has her own Twitter.
‘Wide Awake’ comes down from the sugary high that characterized Katy’s ‘Teenage Dream’ era; it’s a dark Alice-esque fantasy that doesn’t pin for a happy, fairytale ending. It’s again another incredible visual piece from Katy, who should be commended for being so consistent in her filmographic amazingness.
