Well, this was never going to end well. Katy Perry has gone full-on Egyptian for for the ‘Dark Horse’ video, which is a shame, because I rather preferred the whole witches’ coven/The Craft vibe she had going during her performance of this track at the Grammys, to be honest.
It’s still a great song and will do really well, no doubt, but it’s a bit strange and I’m sure the cultural appropriation police will be ringing their bells anytime now (especially after the whole geisha thing). I like it, generally speaking, and as far as videos go, it could be a lot worse.
What do you think?
