Katy Perry’s ‘Part of Me’ Video: Five Things We Want To See

Perry is set to premiere the clip on 'MTV First' tonight at 7:23 p.m. ET, followed by an MTV.com Q&A.

We’re just excited as you are about the premiere of Katy Perry’s “Part of Me” video tonight at 7:23 p.m. ET on MTV. But before Katy herself introduces the video and answers your questions on MTV.com following the debut, we have a wish list of five things we’d love to see in the visuals.

Directed by Ben Mor and filmed at the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base in Oceanside, California, in February, the clip promises to show Perry in full combat mode. So what do we want from the sure-to-be-feisty video?

Katy Perry Getting Tough
She’s always been pretty fierce, but seeing her crawl around in the dirt and maybe even shoot a gun? Well, that’s a side of the singer we have yet to see. But given how aggressive she is in the video teaser, we know she can live up to the challenge.

Katy Perry in Night Vision
Who hasn’t imagined what the California Gurl would look like in the green light of night vision? Based on the tease, it seems Katy Cats can see Perry in a whole new, um, light.

Katy Perry In Uniform
Of all the looks we’ve seen from Ms. Perry (which have even included a bra that shoots whipped cream ), getting a glimpse of Perry in a uniform would be a whole new style. And given that she usually looks impeccably feminine and super glossy, it could be fun to see this new, more lo-fi side of the star.

Katy Perry With Black Hair
Sure, we love Katy’s blue hair , but have we missed Katy in her signature jet-black hair? Yes! It’s her look, and we can’t imagine a video for a song as dark as this would include candy-colored locks.

Katy Perry Kissing Off a Former Lover
Given the fact that the song is all about saying “buh-bye” to a dude who doesn’t deserve you, we hope that story line pops up in the video somehow. How that ties into the Marine theme of the video? Well, that will remain a mystery until the premiere, but we can’t help thinking about the old adage about not messing with a woman scorned …

Following the premiere, the singer will talk all about her new projects, including Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, during a 30-minute interview with MTV News’ James Montgomery on MTV.com.

Don’t miss “MTV First: Katy Perry” tonight, when the pop star will debut her long-awaited video for “Part of Me” at 7:23 p.m. ET on MTV. Then head over to MTV.com for an exclusive 30-minute interview with Katy herself!
