Katy Perry - Teenage Dream



Like her, love her, consider her meh. You can't deny the fact that the future Mrs. Russell Brand has a definite pull that most pop stars don't. In the video for her second single and title track of her sophomore release, Katy explores the topic of young love and how it feels for that moment when every thing is super sexy and new and you never want it to change. When you take into account who her demographic is, this song is everything that it needs to be. Every girl on the face of the planet at some point in her life is going to experience everything this song says.

We drove to Cali
And got drunk on the beach
Got a motel and
Built a fort out of sheets
I finally found you
My missing puzzle piece
I'm complete

I mean come on, I realize the lyrics aren't Pulitzer Prize quality but how dreamy is that verse. The video itself is absolutely perfect for the song, something her people have an amazing knack of figuring out. The grainy quality of the film and the overall feeling is the treatment the video needs and when she channels her best Zooey Deschanel she nails it.

I love Ms. Perry and think she is doing a valuable service to the pop community by delivering her special brand of music

I give this a dreamy 4.5/5.00
