Katy Perry  E.T. Featuring Kanye West | Music Video

Even before its official debut, plenty of critics have paired Katy Perry‘s new “E.T.” music video as another “Lady Gaga wannabe”, quite unfairly. While the extra-terrestrial theme, along with trans-mutational subjects, are quite similar to Lady Gaga‘s own space odyssey in “Born This Way“. The music itself is on a slower, less edgy tempo. Which begs the question, do people even listen to the music while watching music videos? On the side note, can anyone guess what Kanye West is wearing during his cameo?

It's kind of hard not to listen to the music while watching unless the video is on mute. Secondly, art will always, by nature, reference other art, either contemporary or in the past. I don't see this as a Lady Gaga copycat at all. It's a music video with detailed costumes, special effects, and an extraterrestrial theme... referencing the lyrics of the song as much as anything else.
