Katy Perry premieres her new video 'E.T.' featuring Kanye West

Katy Perry's new video for the song E.T., featuring Kanye West has finally premiered. It was directed by Floria Sigismondi, who is known for her unusual, out-of-this-world videos. Her previous work includes music videos for artists such as Bjork, Christina Aguilera, David Bowie, The Cure, The White Stripes, Marilyn Manson, Fiona Apple and Muse.

"Her trademark dilating, jittery camerawork, noticeable as early as her video for Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People", has been replicated by a great number of directors since. Her very innovative, but also very disturbing video works, located in sceneries she once described as "entropic underworlds inhabited by tortured souls and omnipotent beings", attracted a number of very prominent musicians." (IMDb)

Katy Perry's ivory couture gown in the video is by Viktor & Rolf.

Here's the much-hyped video:

I personally love it, it is weird but so very eye catching. I'm also a very big fan of Floria Sigismondi's way of filming, Manson's video being one of the first things I ever recorded on a VHS when I was a wee little girl and into that sort of music :)
