It’s Katy Perry season.
The singer is officially back with a music video for “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Skip Marely, and don’t worry, it’s a lot different than the hamster lyric video she delivered earlier this month.
The elaborate video takes place in a futuristic, The Jestsons-esque town called Oblivia, where folks are launched over a wall, running on a giant hamster wheel and going through the colorful motions of life with a robotic elegance.
Some folks are comparing the video to Netflix’s science-fiction and technology focused show Black Mirror while others are finding political undertones in the pastel universe a reference Perry is clearly going for.
Katy wants to tell us through the video that we need to look around, wake up & educate ourselves bc it’s the only way to make a change.
