  1. Everyone’s like “omg this sons so sad omg it’s so true” while doing exactly what the people are doing in the videos. Also, if you haven’t thought about anything in this video at least once, you are the people this song is about.

  2. I love this meaningful bop sfm. Katy Perry really served a very underrated bop. Small Talk is also so underrated, but its MV is coming this Friday. Don't forget to watch it everyone!

  3. Long storey short , how I found this song was my friend he’s sister was obsessed with this song and he wound stop talking about it . Then my crush started talking bout it so I asked em what the song was called and they told me . Here I am in 2019 addicted to this song . Happy 2017 days❤️

  4. I'd say that all of the colour in this song is lament to be the distraction of what's really going on in this world

  5. This bouncy, tropical disco song was written by Katy Perry with her frequent collaborator Max Martin, his fellow Swede Ali Payami and Australian singer-songwriter Sia. Max Martin has helped craft all of Perry's #1 singles with the exception of "Firework."

    The sociopolitical lyrics are a rallying cry for society to stop living in a bubble and become more politically involved and less complacent. Perry suggests that most people are chained to insidious "rhythm" of conformity.

    Are we tone deaf?
    Keep sweeping it under the mat
    I thought we could do better than that, I hope we can

    Perry was a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US presidential election. The day after Donald Trump's inauguration, the singer joined various other female celebrities at the nationwide Women's March on Washington.

    The reggae-tinged song features a guest appearance on the bridge by Bob Marley's grandson Skip Marley.

    The song's release on February 10, 2017 followed a guerrilla marketing effort in which disco balls with headphone jacks were strategically placed in major cities across the globe.

    The result was a worldwide scavenger hunt in which fans hunted the disco balls down to listen to the track before its official debut.

    Perry performed this song for the first time at the Grammy Awards in 2017, where she was joined by Skip Marley. The set was a house that was made up of pieces held by humans, who weren't revealed until the end, when they reconfigured to form a wall emblazoned with script from the United States Constitution.

    This was the first song featuring a member of the Marley family to reach the Top 10 of the Hot 100. The previous most successful tune by a Marley was "Tomorrow People" by Bob's son Ziggy with his backing band the Melody Makers, which reached #39 in 1988. Surprisingly Bob Marley never had a Top 40 Hot 100 hit.

    Katy Perry shot the video over three days in January 2017 at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. The theme park hosts a world record 19 roller coasters and is often called "the thrill capital of the world".

    The visual was directed by Matthew Cullen (Jay-Z, Beck), who also helmed the Perry's clips for "California Gurls" and "Dark Horse."

    The candy-colored video is set in a fictional theme park called 'Oblivia', in which patrons queue hours on end to get flung through the air in the name of fun. It continues the single's theme of calling out sections of society who prefer to live in a bubble rather than waking up to the issues that really matter.

    Skip Marley came on board after Perry heard his debut single "Lions." He recalled to Billboard magazine:

    "My manager [Brandon Creed] called and told me that 'Lions,' which I made around election time, was being played at the studio in L.A. with Max Martin, and Katy heard it and said, 'I want him to be a part of the song.' She reached out in January, and I went to the studio and delivered the message that I had to deliver. I had free rein lyrically. Katy said, 'Just do you.'"

    The genesis of the song was something that Ali Payami played on a guitar during a writing session with Sia and Max Martin. "I don't know if I accidentally played a riff or if it were on purpose," Payami recalled to Billboard magazine. "But they liked it and we started writing on that. We spent a long time on the melody and lyrics and when that was done, we spent an even longer time on the production."

    So that’s the meaning and facts about this song

  6. Okay idk if anyone thinks the same however at 2:33 u will c katy konda looking around to see what the others were doing and she was doing the same thing for example as soon as they all start movkn tgeir heads u can see katy looking around and trynna do the same thing as them i think this means something about trends and how when someone does something and it blows uo everyone else is doing the exact thing and it just shows how blinded we are by these trends and so oppsest of how we look that we are actually not focusing on the problems for example the movie that they are watching shows what i think is a toxic family of the perfect wife who cleans and the husband who sits watches the tv and reads and a child drawing but its all a cover up

  7. Las prendas me parecen de los más alucinante..una mezcla entre los años 50 con el futurismo!!!!! que locooooo… Me encantaaaaaaa!!!!

  8. “Consumers aren’t listening to actual important things and that’s bad, anyway buy my albums and merch”

  9. Are we crazy?
    Livin' our lives through a lens
    Trapped in our white picket fence
    Like ornaments
    So comfortable, we're livin' in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble
    Aren't you lonely
    Up there in utopia
    Where nothing will ever be enough?
    Happily numb
    So comfortable, we're livin' in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble
    Ah, so good
    Your rose-colored glasses on
    And party on (woo)
    Turn it up, it's your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm
    Turn it up, it's your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm
    Are we tone deaf?
    Keep sweepin' it under the mat
    Thought we could do better than that
    I hope we can
    So comfortable, we're livin' in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble
    Aha, so good (so good)
    Your rose-colored glasses on
    And party on (woo)
    Turn it up, it's your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm
    Turn it up, it's your favorite song (oh)
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm (woah)
    It is my desire
    Break down the walls to connect, inspire
    Ay, up in your high place, liars
    Time is ticking for the empire
    The truth they feed is feeble
    As so many times before
    The greed over the people
    They stumblin' and fumblin' and we're about to riot
    They woke up, they woke up the lions (woah)
    Turn it up, it's your favorite song (hey)
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up (turn it up), keep it on repeat
    Stumbling around like a wasted zombie (like a wasted zombie)
    Yeah, we think we're free (ah)
    Drink, this one's on me (ah)
    We're all chained to the rhythm (we're all)
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm (we're all chained to the rhythm)
    It goes on, and on, and on
    It goes on, and on, and on (turn it up, it goes on and on and on and on)
    It goes on, and on, and on (on and on and on it goes)
    'Cause we're all chained to the rhythm
