Katy Perry Sets Her Old Self on Fire in Preview Clip for ‘Roar’

Her new single’s out on the 12th; giant trucks traversing the globe have announced that her new album, Prism, will be out on October 22; and today a short video has revealed that we should all be gearing up for a “new Katy.” Burning the blue wig from her past, the Katy whose “California Gurls” had her frolicking through a field of gumdrops and infamously spraying whipped cream from her bra will now be more “Wide Awake” than “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).” Are we ready to accept the darker side of the pop princess? Adjust your playlists accordingly.
