E.T. VS Born This Way – Music Video Battle

Katy Perry has given Lady Gaga a run for her money with her latest music video. With some help from Kanye West, Katy brings an other-worldly dimension to the 5-minute long masterpiece for her it of Teenage Dream, “E.T.” Gaga is usually the queen of special effects and over-the-top short-films, but Katy may take the cake with her latest clip.

The video premiered today on MTV.com and shows Katy as “the titular alien: a swirling, shifting, otherworldly being who crashes to earth to resurrect a long-dormant love and, in the process, perhaps reboot the human race,” according to MTV.

Katy recently told MTV that the makeup process for the video was very intensive.

“It was, like, five and six hours, each makeup look,” she shared, adding it was difficult for her to remain patient during the process.

“It was hard for me! It was really a patience thing for me on this video,” she continued. “But, you know, it’s like when you’re doing a film. Sometimes you have to do prosthetics, and you have to get really old or turn into an animal or a monster — and that’s kind of what this process was.”

Katy’s extra-long fake nails and style seem to be Gaga-esque or maybe like an Avatar? Both “Born This Way” and “E.T.” have also received a lot of hype!

Do you think Katy drew inspiration from Gaga?

  1. no contest gagas btw video: masterpiece
    katy perry: random video and an obvious attempt to try to copy gagas “creative” video

  2. Katy’s video’s visual effects are way more impressive and her song is better. I like that she switches things up in her videos. Lady Gaga’s video looks dated (and come on: Katy rips off Gaga? Clearly Gaga rips of Madonna). Her whole “shock” thing is so tiring that it just looses any surprise anymore. The Born this Way album was so mediocre and disappointing.
