From "I Kissed a Girl" to "California Gurls," Katy Perry's music videos are known for their bright colors, upbeat dance scenes and obvious sexuality. But while the colors and dance beats return in her "Firework" video, the sexy singer flaunts an inspirational message instead of her cupcake-clad chest.
The music video for the third single on the newlywed's Teenage Dream album (which premiered Oct. 28) is all about learning to love yourself. In the chorus, a covered-up Perry sings: "Baby, you're a firework. Come on, show 'em what you're worth!" She drives home the point by featuring young people -- a cancer patient, an overweight teen, a closeted gay man -- struggling to let themselves shine.
In a YouTube interview, the singer explains the message. "Everybody can be a firework. It’s just all about you igniting the spark inside of you," Perry says. "This song would probably be my favorite song on the record."
