The Two Big Reasons Katy Perry's "Firework" Video Makes Total Sense

I didn't really get why Katy Perry's label went with "Firework" as a third single of her latest album at first. Especially given that it was following up "Teenage Dream," a song that, despite my reservations about Katy herself, I'm still quite addicted to.

"Firework" just seemed to be missing something—the sense of urgency "Teenage Dream" possesses. Or the ability to stick around in your head after you've heard it. Or a certain Max Martin-ness.

But now, after seeing the song's music video, it all makes perfect sense. Katy Perry shoots fireworks out of her tits and saves dying children and makes fat girls go swimming and gay boys kiss.

She's like an ambassador of unity. Or at least her cans are. Stunning. And thank god she reminded us she has that pair. Because she doesn't rely on them to compensate for her vocals nearly enough in her career.

    I want Katy Perry to do a musical remake of the 1970s Wonder Woman TV show.

    Jon Hamm should play Steve Trevor.

    Russell Brand should play a Nazi villain.

    Adam Lambert should play Wonder Woman's gay little brother.

    It should be directed by John Waters.

    Maybe Kylie could do number as Wonder Woman's mother!

    How about a just a remake of Sweeney Todd, and she gets her head hacked off in the first act?

    Yes - nice cans - so sparkly and pretty. Still sounds like she's squeezing a cat when she opens her mouth.

    Is there anything Katy's cans CAN'T do?
