Katy Perry is taking the whole firework metaphor to the extreme as her new concert movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me hits theaters July 4 weekend. In the first trailer for the much-anticipated 3-D concert documentary, we see Perry (and the various shades of her technicolor hair) backstage, on stage, and through all of her hits on the path to superstardom over the past few years, including her divorce from comedian Russell Brand. She tells a crowd in the clip below, “Thank you so much for believing in my weirdness.” Fair enough, Katy. Check out the trailer below:
So will Part of Me be this generation’s Truth or Dare? More likely it will be closer in kin to the Justin Bieber documentary, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, as it is directed by the same team (Magical Elves’ Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth). Named for her latest single, “Part of Me,” which hit number one on the charts in February, the film follows Perry’s 124-stop California Dreams tour last year.
If you’re hoping to be BFF with Perry, this could be your chance. “I want to take you behind the cotton candy clouds and reveal the highs and lows and nuts of bolts of this extraordinary ride. I promise you, after seeing this film, you will truly know me,” she said in a statement.
