The nearly 21-minute feature offers interviews with Katy, as well as her co-stars and director, Floria Sigismondi. "I had written a treatment for the video and sent it out to a few people, and then Floria, who I had worked with on 'E.T.' before, she actually sent me a treatment completely revised from the idea," the singer says.
The video concept, which Floria explains is about "pride getting in the way" of love, also tells the story of a woman whose "stakes are higher than just love lost."
In addition to watching Katy goof around on set, fans get to see how she was transformed into an older version of herself with expertly applied makeup. Check out the behind-the-scenes clip below to get an in-depth look at the video shoot.
