Katy Perry Is Her Own Knight in Shining Armor in Marie Antoinette-Themed 'Hey Hey Hey' Music Video

No one can break Katy Perry!
After a whirlwind year for the 33-year-old singer, the pixie-haired songstress released the music video for her power anthem, "Hey Hey Hey," on Wednesday.
Directed by Isaac Rentz, the Marie Antoinette-themed visual sees Perry getting ready for an unwanted date with Prince Piggy. While putting on her makeup and corset, she envisions herself as her own knight in shining armor, ready to tackle anything that comes her way. At the shindig, and after the royal dud disgusts her, Perry takes matters into her own hands.
"You think that I'm a little baby/You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé/You think that I am cracking, but you can't break me," Perry sings. "I ain't got no strings/I'm no one's little puppet/Got my own cha ching in my chubby little wallet/And secretly you love it."
Perry also dedicated the video to her devoted fan base and wrote a lengthy note on Instagram about what 2017 has taught her.
"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 began her post. "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," she continued. "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."
