Pink’s new music video for “Raise Your Glass” is all about gay rights and now [artist id="3274550"]Katy Perry[/artist] wants to do her part with her “Firework” clip . The singer announced on her Twitter page that she’s dedicating the splashy video to the recently launched “It Gets Better” campaign , which lends support to young gay people who have been bullied.
“Who’s ready to see #FIREWORK!!! I’ve got it for you, I’m so proud to present …” the newlywed tweeted. “I am officially dedicating my new video to #itgetsbetter, because everyone has the spark to be a FIREWORK.”
While Perry didn’t say when the clip will officially drop, she did hint that its release seems to be right around the corner. “It’s coming soon, I will update you as soon as I can!” she shared. “Meanwhile, let’s put a #FIREWORK on trending topics! Tell me what it means to u.”
Earlier this month, Perry issued a trailer for the video, which was filmed in Budapest, Hungary. “CHECK THIS OUT: a TEASER for my new music video, ‘Firework!’ ” she shared on Twitter. “Can’t WAIT to present the whole thing soon!” In the preview, the singer first appears on a balcony in a lavender gown and then is seen belting out the song’s chorus in a cobblestone square with revelers dancing around her.
“I guess I’m looking forward to making music videos on this new album … and I’m really excited about incorporating the look and the idea of some of the songs on tour and making a massive production of it,” Perry recently told MTV News . “I’m gonna want a lot of visuals. I want it to be 10 times better than when I was on tour last.”
Perry also has picked “Firework” as her favorite track from her latest album, Teenage Dream. “People are coming back and almost adopting it as their own anthem, and it’s hard, I think, to write an anthem that’s not cheesy,” she explained. “And I hope that this could be something in that category. I hope this could be one of those things where it’s like, ‘Yeah, I want to put my fist up and feel proud and feel strong.’
“I think ‘Firework’ … would be like the opus or my one song — if I had to pick a song to play,” she reiterated. “‘Cause it has a great beat. But it also has a fantastic message.”
