Katy Perry Premieres "Dark Horse" Music Video—Watch Now! – E! Online

Katy Perry‘s new name is clearly Katy-Patra.

The 29-year-old pop star just premiered her highly anticipated music video “Dark Horse,” the third single off of her Prism album and it’s quite a magical spectacle.

The Egyptian-themed clip begins with the message “Memphis, Egypt…a crazy long time ago.” The singing sensation is Cleopatra, clad in a platinum blond bob wig with blue hieroglyph detail, and she is floating down the Nile on a dazzling boat.

Perry sports several colorful looks as the aforementioned famed pharaoh, including some intricate headdresses with some bright wigs, one awesome bejeweled grill and some bold neon ensembles. The whimsical music video even features a plate of Twinkies built into a pyramid.
