Katy Perry Goes Sci-Fi With 'E.T.'


Katy Perry's latest hit "E.T." – the Number One single on Billboard's Hot 100 chart this week – may be named after Steven Spielberg's adorable Eighties space alien, but its video has more to do with grim modern sci-fi. In fact, the clip looks as though it could be the trailer for either a sequel to Avatar or a Katy Perry video game. It's a bold move away from Perry's usual silliness and sexuality, but the song itself is too – it sounds more like Evanescence's hard rock balladry than her cheerful radio hits "California Gurls" and "Teenage Dream."
