FINALLY. After a little less than a week of teasing it, Katy Perry's highly anticipated music video for "Part Of Me" is HERE! We gave you a sneak peek at her camouflage beauty look late last week, but now we're finally able to see how the crypsis look fits into director Ben Mor's greater vision for the soundtrack-driven short. Katy starts off the video with dark shoulder-length hair and face-framing bangs. Her face is tastefully made up—soft grays around her baby blues, a peachy flush, and just bitten lips. Certain *achem* events are witnessed, which sends KP into a blind rage. And her luscious raven locks were the victim (seen mid-massacre below).

The kiss-off anthem is appropriately illustrated against Katy's entrance into the Marines after she spies what is evidently a very effective bumper sticker. She doesn't go full on G.I. Jane, but the impromptu pixie cut is definitely a stark change. It's coarse and haphazard and a great physical representation of the scorn and ANGST pumping through her veins. KP strips off all the makeup, pulls on some pixelated fatigues, and storms boot camp with the rest of the troops. Watch the full video below, and let us know which of Katy's looks you like best. (We were definitely won over by the military uniform when she sings "I'm sparkling" while carrying a battle rifle. #HARD)
