New Video: Katy Perry's "California Gurls"

Katy Perry
California Gurls feat. Snoop Dogg [Video Premiere]
Director: Matthew Cullen

Serving the lead single from her upcoming Teenage Dream album, the number #1 hit California Gurls is accompanied by a Candyland themed video inspired by Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The song, produced by Max Martin, Dr. Luke, and Benny Blanco, is described by Katy Perry as an answer to Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind.

She is quoted as saying the following to Rolling Stone:
"It's so great that "Empire State of Mind" is huge and that everyone has the New York song, but what the f***? What about LA? What about California? It's been a minute since we had a California song and especially from a girl's perspective. We took the references of Prince, which is always a great reference, and some of the '90s, almost house music references."'

Love the song. The video is quite stupid.
