Katy Perry – Hey Hey Hey

After teasing a Marie Antoinette-inspired look yesterday, Katy Perry has released her video for “Hey Hey Hey”.

Perry posted a clip on her Instagram, with the caption: “After a year of peaks and valleys (remember, it’s all a journey), I wanted to end 2017 with a fun, triumphant piece of pop candy. Just think of it as a glam little stocking stuffer from me to you. “Hey Hey Hey” is one of my favorite songs from “Witness” and for me, it embodies the fighting spirit I always want you to be able to find within yourself, and to see in me.”

The video features a dolled-up Perry, wearing a giant wig and going through the motions as an 18th century royal. She daydreams of being her own Joan of Arc and slaying the evil men in her life while the lyrics “You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me” echo in the background.

Lyrics:

A big beautiful brain with a pretty face, yeah
A babydoll with a briefcase, yeah
A hot little hurricane, ha
‘Cause I’m feminine and soft, but I’m still a boss, yeah
Red lipstick but still so raw, yeah
Marilyn Monroe in a monster truck

‘Cause I can be zen, and I can be the storm, yeah
Smell like a rose, and I pierce like a thorn, yeah
Karate chopping the clichés and norms all in a dress

Hey, hey, hey
You think that I’m a little baby
You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
No, no way
No, no way
No, no way
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me (break me)

Yeah, I bounce back like a pro ’cause I’m so resilient
L-o-l at all your limits
Keep your penny thoughts, I’m making a mint

‘Cause I can be zen, and I can be the storm, yeah
Smell like a rose, and I pierce like a thorn, yeah
Karate chopping the clichés and norms all in a dress

Hey, hey, hey
You think that I’m a little baby
You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
No, no way
No, no way
No, no way
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me (break me)

I ain’t got no strings (no strings, no strings, no strings)
I’m no one’s little puppet
Got my own cha ching in my chubby little wallet
And secretly you love it (you fucking love it)
And secretly you love it

Hey, hey, hey
You think that I’m a little baby
You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
No
Hey, hey, hey
You think that I’m a little baby
You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
No, no way (no)
No, no way (no way)
No, no way (uh-uh)
Oh, you think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
