The 31-year-old pop star, who recently performed at the Democratic Nation Convention, released the music video on Thursday, and the metaphor about trying to rise above your circumstances and limitations is represented by a giant rose-pink parachute.
From running through a dilapidated warehouse to struggling through the beating desert sun to dangling from the edge of a cliff, it really seems like this giant pink tarp is more trouble than it's worth.
Of course, she manages to rise in the end… where she apparently drifts off higher and higher into the distance, which really feels both unsafe and counter-intuitive to the basic principles of aerodynamics, but at least it's catchy!
To be fair, the music video version of Katy Perry has long had difficulty understanding how basic things work. Like in the song "Fireworks,” where she shoots them out of her chest:
Or, in the same song, when a pregnant woman apparently gives birth to fireworks:
Or in the music video for "California Gurls" when she just wastes so much whipped cream (or maybe it's shaving cream?) by shooting them out of her chest.
Actually, it's kind of surprising that parachute never ended up shooting out of her chest.
Currently, Perry is vacationing in Italy with her boyfriend, Orland Bloom, who took Perry paddleboarding on Thursday completely naked. Perry kept her swimsuit on, but Bloom apparently didn't want any tan-lines. Check out the NSFW video below for more on their ridiculously revealing revelry.
