WATCH! Katy Perry, Your 'California Gurls' Video Has NOTHING To Do With California! What Were You Thinking?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of Candyland… but that’s NOT what your song is about!

Katy Perry, you said your summer smash “California Gurls” was supposed to be a rebuttal to Jay-Z‘s “Empire State of Mind,” an anthem for the great state of California. And it totally is! So why the heck would you make a music video with NO traces of Cali in it whatsoever? The video is fun, but I was hoping for better.

Seriously, now. Gingerbread men? Candy cane snakes? Blue hair and bunny ears? None of these things bring images of California to mind. My associate (and actual California girl) Kirstin Benson is simply appalled by all of this. For me, the worst moment was when “we freak in my Jeep” was synched up to you saving some random chick from being trapped in Jello. What’s THAT about?

Your video suffers from a little thing I like to call “the Lady Gaga syndrome.” You’ve got a great, fun, catchy song… but somehow it totally loses its meaning when you make the music video. (Seriously, WHAT does “Telephone” have to do with prison or mayonnaise?)

You throw the beach in there about halfway through, but it’s too little too late. I said it before and I’ll say it again: it’s a good video — but you totally WASTED it on this song.
