Katy Perry Is A Space Oddity In Her “E.T.” Video

Someone at Team Katy Perry or Vevo must have flipped the switch early, because instead of the pop star’s “E.T.” video premiering tonight on MTV, it surfaced online this morning. Oops/yay! In the visually stunning clip for her fourth #1 hit off Teenage Dream, Alien Katy floats to an uninhibited planet (and last not one inhibited anytime in the last couple thousand of years) and falls for a man in a robot suit who turns out to be… well, it’s not Russell Brand. Watch below and find out! 

Katy Perry feat. Kanye West – “E.T.”

We have a feeling people will be comparing this one to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” vid – pop star as an other life form in a flowy dress floating through space – but thematically the videos are very different.

What do you think? One pointless Kanye West cameo aside, this clip (directed by Floria Sigismondi) is pretty cool, huh?
