There is something about Katy Perry that at times seems innocent to us and at the same time like she is pulling the wool over our eyes. Both happens in her clip for "Wide Awake" but what we see is innocence lost.
The video is set to take place after her "California Girls" video where her career skyrockets and her entire life changes, from being one of the top 2 female singers on the planet to a love-struck marriage to Russell Brand that ultimately ended in divorce. The kid in her returns however.
What does little "Kathryn" Perry symbolize? Perhaps it is the Katy of today fighting for the happiness of that little girl. To not be fooled or shackled or to eat the poison strawberry. To not be fooled that you need a Prince Charming and to find the happiness inside you and to live for you. To never give up on your candyland dreams or of world domination.
The video is beautifully stunning. With that little caterpillar climbing alongside the hill to Katy Perry able to shoot fireworks or a spell from her breasts one more time. There is a "Snow White & The Huntsman" feel to it and "Kathryn" gets her "Hulk Smash" on as well.
It is a fun video with a serious message. One that may be lost on some but not the doc.
What do YOU think of the video?-DocFB
