Katy Perry’s Roar roared up the charts to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list, bumping Robin Thicke to the number two position. Roar is Perry’s eighth song to hit number one. Will Roar and Perry’s upcoming album, Prism, cause people looking back at the MTV VMAs next year to think of more than suggestive sexual acts done with foam fingers?
On October 22, her new album, Prism, will be out in the stores.
The beginning of Katy’s video shows the pop songstress’s airplane crashing in a jungle. Her boyfriend quickly becomes Tiger Chow, and Perry has to try to survive on her own.
She not only survives, she thrives. Who needs the modern conveniences of a shower, when the nearest elephant will be only too glad to give you a shower with his trunk?
Katy has on a leopard-spotted bikini top (did she kill the leopard herself?) and a skirt made from leaves.
Roar, after being number two on the charts, has bumped off the reigning champ, Blurred Lines. Robin Thicke’s summer smash had been number one for twelve weeks.
In its first week alone, Roar sold over a half a million copies (557,000, to be exact). Week two was a bit slower, with Roar selling 392,000, but remaining at the number two position. Roarthis week had its best week yet, selling more than a million copies, an increase of 14 percent.
