Should Katy's "Birthday" video have been the official video?

Recommended Posts

After the release of "Dark Horse", "Birthday" began a string of Katy Perry flops/underperformances as none of her hits afterwards made top 70 year end

 

It peaked at #17 and ranked #80 on the 2014 year end chart.

 

The music video was - to put it simply - TRAGIC; the fact that she made it 8 minutes long too :rip:

 

The lyric video has more views than the original official version:

 

Birthday (Official Video): 73M Views

BIrthday (Lyric Video): 283M views

 

I actually think a video of Katy Perry just making sweets & cakes would be soo cute, especially with her ability to serve such good visuals

Yes, the official video was one of the biggest missteps of her entire career.

The fact that she had the audacity to follow that excellent and loved lyric video up with a terrible and panned music video :rip: sometimes less is truly more.

She was trying something different bless her to improve her artistry and have her MVs more like how Gaga had them but it just didn't work :fan:

The way maroon 5 ripped of everything about that song including the music video is almost bizarre looking back. I wonder why she didn't sue

the lyric video is too iconic to release another mv trying to outshine that

It's sad, because Maroon 5's Sugar sounds like Birthday, and even its MV used the same concept as Birthday MV, but one was a smash hit, and one was done so badly it was one of the artist's career mistakes.
