Katy Perry’s latest release, ‘Chained to the Rhythm,’ has not exactly proven itself to be the sizable hit a number of its predecessors were, but that hasn’t stopped the songstress from plugging it at every stop and corner.
After dominating awards season with live performances of the politically charged tune, now – nearly two months after its inaugural unveiling – Perry and team release a behind-the-scenes look at its accompanying music video. Dishing on the inspiration behind the clip, shot at Six Flag’s Magic Mountain in California, Perry and Possum Hill (the video’s director) give insight to the song’s hidden meaning and the decision-making processes behind some of the costumes, props, and other aspects of the visual’s treatment.
