Get ready to see a new side of Katy Perry.
The Prism singer released the official music video for her John Mayer-inspired single "Unconditionally," and there's not one whipped cream-shooting brassiere or bright blue wig in sight. Steering away from her usual colorful, campy and high-energy videos which produce laughs, Perry's latest seems to focus more on the track while also being artistic.
Katy told MTV News that she wanted to center this video on "beauty and glamour," and that's exactly what the pop singer did.
Touching on all the different elements, fans will see beautiful Perry in a number of different settings while always emotionally singing into the camera.
Whether she's dressed all in white and standing outside in the snow, laying on a bed of colorful flowers, jumping into a pool while dressed in a gown or squeezed into a girdle while dancers parade around her, the "Unconditionally" music video provides plenty of artistic imagery.
And no, Mayer did not make a cameo.
"I went to Madagascar and did a UNICEF trip that changed my life and gave me this song. It's just a simple message about loving someone and accepting them and kind of driving at you don't have to be so self-conscious, you don't have to fear, because essentially, everybody has their stuff. Nobody comes stuff-free."
She added, "Everybody has their things and you're never going to be perfect, and accepting that and understanding that, especially in a relationship, it makes room for a real, genuine kind of love."
