Katy Perry Dethrones Robin Thicke On Billboard Hot 100
September 6th, 2013 10:30am EDT
Well done KatyCats and Kitty Purry for replaying “Roar” over and over. The fans and the radio stations across the nation have placed Katy Perry’s single "Roar” at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
As everyone should already know, "Blurred Lines" was the summer jam. The single held the top place on the Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks. I mean, Robin Thicke’s voice just makes any day better. Am I right, or am I right?
But, everyone’s time on the throne must come to an end, and Perry has nudged Thicke aside.
This record breaker puts Katy Perry at 8 Hot 100 No. 1 singles. As a gift to her KatyCats, I assume but most likely was pre-planned, Perry has released the official music video to “Roar.” The video is as fierce as the girl empowerment lyrics. Perry is shown surviving a plane crash and fearlessly fighting jungle creatures. While doing so, Perry looks ravishing in minimal clothing, the usual, with prints that imitate the life of George (from the jungle) who is stranded on a Hawaiian island.
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Perry said the song is “about speaking up for yourself …Sometimes you can feel burdened by people or a thing or a relationship and it causes you to go inside yourself versus say 'Hey! No, this isn't okay.'"
Intrigued? Watch the video below to understand what Perry is trying to portray through "Roar."
