(USA TODAY) Katy Perry's going full-on ancient Egypt in the new video for Dark Horse.
In the very Perry-esque video, the pop singer is the queen of "Memphis, Egypt, a crazy long time ago," surrounded by dancing court performers and bright hues. Men present gifts to Her Highness, none of which are particularly satisfactory.
The costume and set designers must have had fun with this one, presenting a world full of colorful, intricate looks (similar to the aesthetic and theme of Perry's BRIT Awards performance Tuesday). There's also some supernatural stuff that goes on, and eventually Perry shows off her pole-dancing skills.
Spoiler alert: A very cute puppy makes an appearance during Juicy J's verse, but Queen Katy's not having any of that.
