Not only is Katy Perry jumping on the bandwagon of artists who endlessly tease their upcoming videos before finally delivering the goods, she’s also joined Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and Lykke Li in the recent trend of pop divas spacing out in front of the camera. (Though, to be fair, the California dreamgirl with excellent taste is the only one of these ladies whose lyrics actually suggest the intergalactic theme.) The just-released official “E.T.” trailer actually focuses more heavily on Katy’s co-pilot Kanye West as he raps while floating through the cosmos, something the fallen phoenix of “Runaway” should already be pretty familiar with. Watch it below.
This video is a bit moodier and less flashy (so far) than we’ve been expecting, with a surprisingly drab color scheme. (Photos we posted previously suggested otherwise.) But as usual, we will reserve judgment until we see the finished product on March 31.
