It's Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away" Video

Am I getting sappy in my old age? Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away" video premiered today, and I swear I almost started bawling from the very opening scene.

The clip stars Katy, both in old-age form and in her current 27-year-old state, along with actor Diego Luna in his classiest role since Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.

Old Katy looks disgruntled at the onset, while living in her Hollywood Hills mansion with her husband. She then flashes back to her younger (and much poorer) days, when she was shacked up with an artist (Diego).

They did fun things together like paint, crash weddings and give each other tattoos — until one day they have a fight that tragically proves to be the last time time they ever see each other.

The other day I asked if people thought "The One That Got Away" would go to #1 and become Perry's sixth chart-topper in a row off her current album. But screw it — after this video, I say the song deserves to achieve that feat for getting me all choked up like a menstrual broad watching Days Of Our Lives all alone on a Monday afternoon.

The perfect way to end the Teenage Dream era.

    If "The One..." makes it to #1, do you think they'll try for a seventh? I think "Hummingbird Heartbeat" would make a great final single.

    If she gets another Number 1, this might not be the end of the era..............

    J.Me, I think that would be the last decent selection, anyway.

    Shaun, agreed!

    Joshua, ...and it'll NEVER be the end of her tits.
