The music video for Katy Perry's E.T. featuring Kanye West has been released and premiered on MTV.com. A previous teaser trailer was released on March 21,2011 which showed a short clip of an unidentified flying object. The music video was directed by Floria Sigismondi, known for her dark feminine style with Christina Aguilera and Marilyn Manson in the list to have worked her before.
Katy is seen in various outlandish outfits with heavy cosmetics throughout the whole video and has been compared to Lady Gaga's look in her recent Born This Way music video. Other comparisons include fictional characters such as Lara Croft, Padme Amidala and Jadzai Dax. Kanye himself is dressed more conservatively in comparison to Katy and he does his verses in a floating space pod of some sort.
The plot for the video is rather simple on the surface with Katy as an alien drifting through outer space. She then lands on an abandoned planet covered in litter. Katy than comes across a broken down robot which turns into a naked male human after being kissed by her. Towards the end of the video, it is revealed that Katy's legs are that of a gazelle. Interspersed scenes of large felids hunting can be seen in the video as well.
