Katy Perry goes undercover in her new music video

'Kimmel': Katy Perry Reveals Prank-Inspired New Music Video

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' Katy Perry revealed the theme and even a clip from her new music video for "Birthday." Turns out she went undercover to film it. Perry said, "I was sick of making gorgeous videos where I'm like, sexual..."

So, Perry dressed up as different fake birthday entertainers. Yes, this is her in costume, and she worked realbirthday parties. It was all filmed.

We have seen Perry play comedic characters before - like in her video for "Last Friday Night." But looks like in "Birthday," she takes on multiple personalities.

She told Kimmel this time she was inspired to go undercover by his prank video featuring a girl allegedly catching fire while Twerking. It went viral.

Perry prefaced the real vid with a much sweeter, literally, lyric video - one that focused on birthday cakes. According to the singer's Twitter, looks like we'll be able to see the whole video Thursday.

Katy - you are a talented artist - I love all that you do with your gift! Wish I could get tickets when you come to Portland Oregon - not easy to find them.

Oh my, I thought that was Britney Spears! I was going to say "her hair looked a little more bleached than usual."

We don't look like that when we reach that age. Just like when we were in grammer school. Everyone looks like they do now. Don't worry about aging. You have your age of people to feel comfortable around.

Well it will give Katy a taste of what she will look like when she gets older and sad or not that is exactly what happens to us.

I really thought this was Miley before she put her make on. No I'm wrong, no young striking out. Miley thinks if her young is out ,she will get something to lick .icecream maybe ,
