Today Katy Perry unveils the sugary sweet video for California Gurls. I admit, this track has been my guilty pleasure this summer. The official video features Perry traveling through a candy universe, where she says (in an interview) that everything is edible. She meets up with Snoop Dogg and his army of middle finger flying gummy bears. The key scene in the entire video is illustrated above. Seriously.
Here are a few remixes that have surfaced for California Gurls, nothing too amazing or different, but the Liam Keegan mix extends the album version quiet nicely + Tommy Sunshine changes the track up just a bit adding some drums + claps! - Matt
Ok, so I have a new guilty pleasure. I always knock people when they copy this chord progression in songs (you can hear it in Tik-Tok, Holiday, Get Together, etc) because it’s so over-used. I’m going to let this one go by, because I can’t get it out of my head. Katy Perry returns to the music scene with a song that sounds exactly like everything that’s out right now called California Gurls.
It’s featuring Snoop Dogg, my favorite rapper of the lot singing about icy popsicles and such all while a vocoded ‘California’ gets repeated over and over. It’s fun, it’s summer. I’ve always loved Katy’s performances and hated her music. I hope she comes out with something completely new and different, but it looks like she’s playing it safe for this album. - Matt
