Katy must be going trough Rihanna’s Idea Book because from what we can see in the trailer for The One That Got Away, it looks a lot like Rihanna’s We Found Love.
The music video appears to tell the story of a troubled relationship with a voiceover that fails at being poetic and instead ends up being corny. Isn’t Katy Perry happily married? Why is she sad, lonely and sulking in expensive dresses in all her music videos (see: Thinking of You).
This is Katy’s sixth single off her album Teenage Dream to get a music video. Her last video, T.G.I.F., was an original, quirky video and it was great to see the singer acting and looking silly while having fun. I have a feeling The One That Got Away is the complete opposite.
Watch the music video trailer below.
