American singer, songwriter and actress Katy Perry (Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson) has released the music video for her latest single, Wide Awake, from the re-release of her third studio album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.
The music video for Wide Awake was directed by Tony T. Datis and will be used as a tie-in promotion for her 2012 3D documentary-concert film, Katy Perry: Part of Me, as part of her deal with soft drink giants, Pepsi.
It can be said that the music video is like a fantasy inspired journey of Katy Perry’s rise to stardom. Each scene in the music video has a reference to her past, from being hounded by hellish paparazzi to the prince charming who crosses his fingers before the Kiss. Definitely a nice closure to the whole Teenage Dream journey.
