No disrespect to my Cali readers but this song is awful. However, with Katy Perry’s swagger coach Snoop making a comedic cameo and Perry wearing edible items, the video is slightly tolerable.
I do find it laughable that Perry considers this a response to “Empire State of Mind.” Says Katy Perry: “It’s so great that “Empire State of Mind” is huge and that everyone has the New York song, but what the f***? What about LA? What about California?. It’s been a minute since we had a California song and especially from a girl’s perspective. We took the references of Prince, which is always a great reference, and some of the ’90s, almost house music references.”
Unmute the video at your own risk.
