Katy Perry Gets Her Artpop on in “This Is How We Do” Music Video

The Ke-grade “This Is How We Do” is the weakest single from Katy Perry’s Prism album so far (we’re still waiting for “Walking on Air” to get a proper release), but the music video for the track, directed by Joel Kefali, offers up eye candy aplenty. Perry gets her artpop on in the new clip, inspired by the Dutch De Stijl art movement and mod fashion, including Yves Saint Laurent’s iconic color-blocked day dress from 1965, ’80s pastels, and nods to Michael Jordan, Aretha Franklin, and Mariah Carey, who appears in a pseudo-cameo via a not-so-flattering impersonator (Perry slyly shaded Mimi as a “throwback” in a recent interview). Elsewhere, Perry’s male dancers get their groove on donning Pee-wee Herman’s famous gray suit, outdone only by a twerking ice-cream cone. Watch the video below:
