Katy Perry’s new single “Roar” went up for pre-order on UK iTunes this afternoon, giving the world its first look at the song’s official artwork. And it’s hilarious. Framed in purple tiger print, Katy looks over her shoulder, really allowing us to appreciate the giant roaring tiger decal on the back of her track jacket. What words does the picture bring to mind? Regal. SUBTLE. Tasteful. EXPENSIVE.
Just kidding, the single cover looks cheaper than free and it’s impossible to take Katy seriously in that tacky getup…but I can’t help but love it. True, Katy’s sending a bit of a mixed message – is this her more mature era, or are we still playing dress-up? But I don’t really care. Honestly, I just like that Katy’s still having fun.
What do you think of Katy’s “Roar” cover art?
