It’s no surprise that Katy Perry’s new music video ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ has over 6 million views already – the miniature cooking is fascinating and the song is so catchy!
If you listen to the lyrics carefully you’ll hear a political undertone. The Los Angeles Times says, “You know America’s in a troubling spot when even Katy Perry is singing about the illusion of freedom.
That’s the subject of “Chained to the Rhythm,” the once-carefree pop star’s new single, which appeared online Thursday night amid a series of Perry tweets and retweets about revolution, George Orwell’s “1984” and the need to “question everything.”
“Are we crazy? / Living our lives through a lens,” she sings, “Trapped in our white picket fence / Like ornaments.” The song goes on to point out how comfortable we are “living in a bubble” where we “dance to the distortion.””
