Katy Perry debuts politically charged video for 'Chained to the Rhythm'

Adjust Comment Print

Katy Perry rolled out her brand new single "Chained To The Rhythm" via disco ball listening stations all over the world, and then gave it a fiery, political performance at the Grammys.

In the four-minute video, the 32-year-old singer dons a Judy Jetson-esque white dress and rocks cotton candy pink hair as she heads to a futuristic, escapist theme park named Oblivia.

In her new song's music video, out today, we see our fave pop-rock crooner happily skipping through a utopian (later, dystopian) '50s amusement park titled, in Orwellian fashion, "Oblivia".

And to top it all off, Krispy Kreme says the coffee was created to be the flawless complement to its Original Glazed doughnuts. The two new blends will be Smooth which is described as subtle and easy drinking or Rich for a more bold experience.

The 32-year-old gave her first live performance of the new single at the Grammys on February 12 and she's taking to London to perform at the BRITs, making it her first United Kingdom performance in three years. The new music video for the track is notably less pointed, offered up with more than a spoonful of the sugary, colorful imagery we've come to expect from Perry.

"Chained To The Rhythm" is the first track to be released from Perry's upcoming album, whose title and release date have yet to be announced.

When thinking about the song's lyrics, the accompanying video makes plenty of sense.
