In her latest visual creation, Katy Perry takes fans to outer space as an alien looking for her lover in “E.T.” The pop princess dons crazy makeup and several artfully designed costumes as she cascades to another planet to meet her fallen love. Her real-life love, Russell Brand, revealed his favorite look to MTV News.
“I like it when she’s that weird one in the beginning all made out of plastic,” he said at CinemaCon in Las Vegas about Perry’s flashy, spacey Floria Sigismondi-directed video , which dropped Thursday.
Stylist Carol Beadle explained to MTV News what she had in mind when she was thinking up looks for the trippy clip. “I was looking at jelly fishes and amoebas; those words were constantly used, and we wanted it to look like a flash of an amoeba and then it coming to life,” she said.
Brand’s alien love certainly doesn’t begin and end with Perry’s video. The “Arthur” star is an avid believer in all things extraterrestrial. “I happen to believe there is such a thing as extraterrestrials, and that needn’t necessarily make me a crackpot,” he confessed. “There probably are [aliens]. The universe is infinite: There’s bound to be some extraterrestrials. Let’s not worry about it.”
In fact, Brand and his lady love aliens so much, they have a romantic trip planned to visit outer space . “I’m so into extraterrestrial stuff,” Perry explained.
“It’s very difficult for me to look up into the sky in the middle of the night and not think that our planet is one of … a bajillion. It’s really, really small. And Russell and I are interested in anything extraterrestrial. I mean, we’re going to space!”
