Teaser: Katy Perry – ‘Roar’ Video

Published: Monday 26th Aug 2013 by Sam

Katy Perry is currently queen of the charts thanks to new single ‘Roar’. It’s fairly fitting, then, that the cut’s accompanying video will see the singer appear as queen of the jungle.

See what we mean after the jump, where a freshly released teaser for the visual awaits..

Interesting. Definitely not what we envisioned, especially in light of the darker “vibe” Perry claims new album ‘Prism’ will boast. In any case, we’ll reserve full judgement until seeing the video in its entirety – which’ll likely be any day now.

‘Prism’ hits stores October 22nd.

    Looks Fun & Slapstick & Everything We Love About A Katy Perry Video! ROAR

    You queens are forever behind on your s***. Katy said months ago and recently tonight on the red carpet that this album isn’t going to be dark. She said when she went to write the album she thought it would be dark but instead of focusing on that she let light into her life, hence the title Prism. Keep up.

    Katy has always delivered quality videos and Roar will be no exception. This era is starting off perfectly!

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 26, 2013

      Well, This is the Only Explanation I will believe in.

      She Delivers Tight eras always too.

  5. jx August 26, 2013

    that VMA performance was NOT IT!!!!!!

  6. beyonceAFRICA August 26, 2013

    Americans are so stupid. Since when do elephants live in an Amazonian habitat. Elephants exist in AFRICA(and its not a country). Their habitat is not plush forest. So katy needs to get her books before she makes this ROAR music video.

    • JOHNVIDAL August 26, 2013

      I´m sure America has higher levels of ignorance than any country in Europe. That´s for sure. Not sure about the rest of the world. But I would say several countries in South America have higher levels of common knowledge too.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 26, 2013

      Dear, This looks more of “India” than anything Africa .

      INDIA has Forests too. LOL. 😀

      • POSH RIRI August 26, 2013


        By all means, it could very well be [Africa] – [Central/South-East Africa] probably,,,,,,,,

        And there are only forests in [Northern/Western & Eastern India],,,,,,,,

        ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,My Mother is Arab-Egyptian (Egypt) and my Father is Ugandan (South-African),,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 26, 2013

        Okay . 😀 #MAMAAFRICA #RESPECT

        But There is a chance it is in INDIA, Katy perry Loves the culture !!
        so there is no ” All Means” , we are just assuming……

        IDC , but the Tigers are what sealed it for me, Wasn’t that a “Bengali tiger” ? 😉 #INDIA

    • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 26, 2013

      I was about to like this teaser til you explained that. I never even thought of it that way…

  7. JOHNVIDAL August 26, 2013

    LMAO ok let me breath properly cos I can´t stop laughing.
    Do u guys imagine what these basic girls stans would be saying if Gaga was about to release a video like this? lol
    Plus this girl can´t sing. Miley and Katy´s performances were the worst as predicted. They are basic crap. Sorry. Thumb me down kids!

    • miao August 26, 2013

      This teaser is embarrassing! She is like 30 years old, acts like a 12yo kid. That performance.. Damn.

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 26, 2013

      This is all truth.

      When you compare Gaga to Miley & Katy, you are talking about two completely different levels of artistry. Watching the latter two last night was absolutely cringe worthy. i was thinking, THIS is what’s representing pop music? THIS is at the top of the charts? THIS???

    • Suicide Blonde August 26, 2013

      I agree about Miley and Katy performances but didn’t you said the other day that nowedays Justin can’t dance better than Gaga when there is no comparison, sometimes you are very delusional man, do you really believe your own words, lol, her performance was so boring and pathetic, her dancing terrible, and this was supposed to be in her own words ‘her best performance ever’, aren’t you enjoying her decline, it is interesting, don’t you think?, lol.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 26, 2013

        Hmm you are twisting my words as always. How the hell can you say to me I´m delusional (cos of something I didn´t say) when in the same comment you say all those repetitive and false things about anything related to Gaga? lol I said from what we saw this year to date, Gaga dances better than Justin, cos we had not seen him dance at all this year (pretty bland era he just had). If he danced last night then great (cos his voice is not his biggest talent lol) but I don´t know cos I´ve not been able to see that video still. Relax and move on. At least you are starting to see the light again when it comes to Katy Perry lol

      • Suicide Blonde August 26, 2013

        You say Justin cannot dance nowadays like GAGA, even if you don’t see him dancing on this era, do you really f****** think that she dances better than him, like what the f***!!!!….i could care less about his voice, do you think Gaga sounds that good when in that song her voice sounds a hot ass mess, her worst song ever, like what the hell she was thinking and yet you have the song on repeat, honey!!… accept it you will even enjoy a song made ​​of burping by her, you refuse to see the reality but i guess time will tell, as of now everything seems to be as i predicted, you will believe me, one day I GUESS, as for Katy i never like her, i said i kind of like her new song, anyway, i haven’t given the song more than 2 spins, so you know how much i like that song.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 27, 2013

        Damn you are turning into a desperate hater. It´s sad, cos I didn´t think you were like that. Again, I didn´t say she was a better dancer than him, only that from what we saw this year anybody could think he wasn´t, cos he has been truly lazy with the dancing and didn´t show anything this year until now.

  8. sassy August 26, 2013

    I see………….. she trying to compete with Jorge from Jorge of the Jungle

  9. lady gaga and beyonce on my telephone August 26, 2013

    congratz katy though i would usually have something mean to say today miley haz shamed me so much i has swallowed all my pride.miley why!

  10. Rosie August 26, 2013

    Was I the only one who actually like her performance? I mean of course it was basic and predictable and there was no point in her performing at the bridge but it was kinda cute.
    Anyways I thought my fave was gonna plummet on iTunes after the VMAs, she’s still top 9 combined. This had a even lower impact on the charts than I expected (the show, not Roar). The songs that really benefited we’re on the commercials.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 26, 2013

      No, i liked it too fully knowing her capabilities.

      I think the “Bridge” thing has something to do With The original “Tarzan” Story. 😉

  11. mark jones August 26, 2013

    New Queen of Pop.

  12. CIARA FAN August 26, 2013

    everything about this chick is basic..She’s the queen of basicness.. n y the f** did she perform under a bridge dressed like a boxer.
    the BET Awards 2013>>>>>>>>> VMA 2013…

    Body party audio+video+BET performance >>>>>>>>> Roar

  13. Patrick August 26, 2013

    LMAO! This has to be a joke? This is not a good idea for this song at all. It looks like a parody or someone making fun of her, its so bad.

  14. Patrick August 26, 2013

    In all honesty, I dont like the song and its a big step down from anything on Teenage dream. Im not feeling this era at all.

  15. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 26, 2013

    It Looks Fun, I’m Super XD.

  16. Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 26, 2013

    I liked her performance last night. Pretty unique. The George of the jungle seems a little cartoonish tho…but I will still watch.

  17. Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

    Cannot wait.

  18. JER August 26, 2013

    They have been suppressing this video for dear life hoping the song will shoot to #1 that week. It’s risky but could pay off. These days songs come out of f****** nowhere so hopefully it will pay off because it didn’t for Kesha and “Die Young” when “Diamonds” came in and snatched that #1 BYEEeee

  19. truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 26, 2013

    ah hooooNEA!!!

  20. Felecia August 26, 2013

    Katy knows her lane and I respect her for that. I am not a fan, but she’s doing her thing. Gaga on the other hand is just too much for the average person.

  21. molly August 26, 2013


  22. Suicide Blonde August 26, 2013

    I am a champion.

  23. ~The Arcade~ August 26, 2013

    her videos (and music)are SOOOO literal! *sighs*

  24. FAF August 26, 2013

    What in the HELL? Please tell me she’s not doing Jane & Tarzan? Anyway, Katy did better than expected but overall everything was pretty basic this yr. Gaga did a lot but the live performance was too much in too little time, much like the video.. She tries to cram too much in such a short time span, IMO
