There will probably be many good times to watch Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” video, though Perry herself has one particularly interesting suggestion.
“It’s definitely something to watch when you have the munchies. … It’s all edible,” she told MTV News. “[Plus,] Snoop is in it.”
She’s right too. Judging by the sneak peek we saw a few weeks back, Snoop most definitely is in the “California Gurls” clip — along with marshmallows, candy canes and a whole lot of confectionaries too (most of which are used to cover up Perry and her backup dancers). All in all, it looks like it’s going to be a pretty sweet affair, though, to be honest, there’s not a whole lot about the video that reminds us of California. But, according to Perry, that was sort of the plan all along.
“We named it ‘Candyfornia’ instead of ‘California,’ so it’s a different world,” she said. “It’s not just like, ‘Oh, let’s go to the beach and throw a party and then shoot a music video!’ It’s more like, ‘Let’s put us California Gurls in a whole different world!’ ”
In keeping with that spirit, even though the song big-ups the beautiful ladies from the West Coast, Perry isn’t about to let her East Coast girls go unloved. In fact, the way she sees it, “California Gurls” can be a bicoastal anthem — you just have to wait for the weather to change in the East.
“The boys always dream about dating a California Gurl … just because we’ve got the sun shining 365 days a year,” Perry laughed. “And I love New York girls. I think they’re hot, and I think they have a lot of attitude. But I’m telling you, when it comes wintertime, they’re all gonna be singing ‘California Gurls.’ ”
