Clean, upbeat song hampered by blatant product placement in video
While this is a good song for young Katy Perry fans to listen to because there's virtually no inappropriate content of any kind, even if "California Gurls", "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)", and even "Dark Horse" are about a million times catchier in my opinion (though definitely not appropriate for the same audience), there's BLATANT product placement in the music video that makes me want to throw my computer out the window in anger. It goes like this: Towards the end of the video, Katy Perry, who is now some kind of a jungle queen or something after taming a tiger in the most utterly RIDICULUOUS way possible (you'll have to see it for yourselves), is shown taking some selfies of her and her pet monkey on her Nokia phone (the logo is clearly visible), which they both laugh at. That whole sequence lasts exactly five seconds (I literally counted), but it's still ludicrous. Besides the glaring fact that cell phones didn't even EXIST in the time period in which this video is supposed to be taking place (and even if they did, she would be using it for something one HECK of a lot more important than taking SELFIES), it's just stupid beyond words that they would blatantly promote something in an artist's music video. There's also a scene in the music video where said tiger attacks somebody off-screen, but besides that, there's virtually nothing scary or offensive to worry about, so if you want to let your little kid watch a Katy Perry music video (and you don't mind them inevitably bugging the crap out of you about buying a Nokia phone "because Katy Perry has one!"), by all means, let them watch this one.
