Katy Perry Goes to a Bizarre Ball in 'Unconditionally' Video

Katy Perry has debuted the luxe video for her lungful Prism power-balled "Unconditionally." Befitting the album's very adult vibes, this clip takes us to a far more grown-up locale than the fantastical jungle of "Roar." Instead we find our hostess in peals and lace, first in a barren and snowy environment, then transported to a Renaissance-era ballroom surrounded by fancy dancers. At one point she catches fire. At another, she shatters an entire car. Various living tableaus writhe around her as we take an aural trip to Florence + the Machine's wind-swept-mountainous-vista lane, quite successfully. The video cannot be played via embed until November 20, so for now, watch it over at MTV.
