On her new single “E.T.,” Katy Perry coos about an extraterrestrial lover with cosmic kisses (and, apparently, lasers) who transports her to otherworldly levels of pleasure. So it’s somewhat fitting that, on a brand-new remix of the song, Kanye West contributes a pair of galactically suggestive verses.
The reworked version of the song — which began making the rounds Wednesday (February 16) — features West proclaiming, “I got a dirty mind/ I got filthy ways” and boasting “They callin’ me an alien/ A big-headed astronaut/ Maybe it’s because your boy Yeezy gets ass a lot.”
Indeed. West also expresses his desire to “bathe … in your milky way,” and later in the remix, he claims to “know a bar out in Mars where they driving spaceships instead of cars.” Then, he drops the real piece-de-résistance: “Rockets on deck/ Tell me what’s next/ Alien sex!” he raps. “I’mma disrobe you then I’mma probe you/ See, I abducted you so I tell you what to do.”
Perry’s label, Capitol Records, confirmed to MTV News that Katy and Kanye’s collabo is an official remix, releasing a photo of both stars on what appeared to be the “E.T.” video set . The clip was shot by “The Runaways” director Floria Sigismondi , who has helmed eye-catching vids for the likes of Christina Aguilera, Marilyn Manson and the White Stripes.
