Katy Perry Gets Beamed Up In Alien-Adoring Track “E.T. (Futuristic Lover)”

It looks like Katy Perry’s new album will be all about love—first, we’ve got her bright-and-shiny ode to the Golden State, and now we’ve got the recently surfaced track with the rumored title “E.T. (Futuristic Lover),” a song about being head over heels for an alien. Hmm, wonder who was the inspiration behind that?

Katy Perry – “E.T. (Futuristic Lover)”

“Take me, take me, I want to be a victim,” sings Perry on the track assumed to have been from the sessions of her new album.  “You’re an alien, your touch is foreign, it’s supernatural, extra-terrestrial.” The track (which reminds us a bit of t.A.T.u.’s “All The Things She Said”) has futuristic electronic beats, and it’s a bit harder than anything that was on the bubblegum-fun One of the Boys. It almost sounds like something her superstar BFF Rihanna may have recorded for Rated-R or (self-proclaimed ufologist) Ke$ha for Animal.

Which is maybe why we’re not digging this track so much—we think pretty much any pop star today could have recorded this song and released a similar version. There’s not much of Katy’s spunk here, and spunk is pretty much her whole schtick thus far. There’s nothing that’s very “Katy” here. We might be convinced with a killer music video for this song (Katy is Maxim‘s Hottest Woman Alive, so you know if she made one it would be totally sexeriffic), but til then, we’ll continue bopping our heads to “California Gurls” while awaiting more tracks from the singer’s sophomore effort.

What do you think of Katy’s song about interplanetary romance? Are you hot or cold?

    Nice picture. Lucky duck, indeed. How did he get into the picture? And, what, prey tell, is he looking at? And Katy says, “He is examining my heart, in order to ascertain where I have gone astray.” All this, while biting her tongue, because she wants to say, “I do,” but knows that something is missing. Hence, the parenthetical expression, futuristic love. Love is not yet present. When Love is present, there is no need to “risk it all.” It simply B.

    But, I really like the song Katy. Honest, and pleasing to all, but maybe one, or two. Something about it reminds me of Ke$ha. I’m not sure what. You might listen to her song, “Want U Bad.” I can’t say more than I feel a part of it, but you have to listen carefully. Lot of heart in it.

    That white spot on the flower reminds me of an alternate image for the song. A white heart on black panties. Imagine that. In the image your arms are spread wide, as if to say, I love you this much.

    I learned a long time ago I could not express how much I loved someone that way. Always someone with a longer reach. So, I taught my young friends, who were not yet five, to understand that when I held my thumb and forefinger so close together that one could just see light pass through, just so much was my love for them. At first, they seemed dismayed. When they understood that even in that tiny space was infinite love, they were filled with joy. Now, they touch them tight and infinite love pops out. Try it.

    A small wedding is a good idea. Unity, even better.

    Joy to you, Rose.

    Honestly this is a very good song, and would sound silly on Rihanna’s Rated R(and sounds nothing like G4L). All artists experiment with sounds, so it’s not girly and upbeat, doesn’t mean it not Katy.

    Thak you, you’ve said exactly what I wanted to and this song should of been a hit but people these days are listening to crappy stuff like eminem and Drake.

  • Kesha

    all the things she said
