Leave it to Pop star Katy Perry to create one of the year’s most off-kilter music videos. Last week, she liberated a brand new clip for the single “Bon Appétit,” which features Atlanta Rap group Migos and sees her as the main course…literally.
In the visual (directed by Dent De Cuir), Perry follows the process of [insert your favorite restaurant dish here]: she’s taken out of the freezer by a group of male chefs, prepped and cooked — by Korean taco innovator Roy Choi, no less — before being served to guests in a nightclub (where her Hip-Hop collaborators are also present). Without giving away the ending, tables get turned in the most bizarre way possible.
It’s really quite brave… Sonically, it’s fun and dance-y and dark and light. It’s all of these things. It definitely is a change.
