Katy Perry Whips Up a Delicious Lyric Video for "Birthday"

Katy Perry may have cruised through Candyland in her "California Gurls" video, but the pop star is the one baking the sweets in her lyric video for new single "Birthday." While lyrics vids are usually just the simple way to say, "Hey, this is my new single, here are the word,s" this one is just as view-worthy—if not more—than most videos today.

Watch above as the Prism singer plays a baker and unveils a slew of desserts decorated with the lyrics to her funky new single. There's cupcakes, macarons, jars of candy and a handful of custom-made cakes—look out for the seven-layer rainbow cake—all to accompany the sugar-sweet hooks. 

With disco-fever beats, funk guitars and a carefree vibe, "Birthday" is most reminiscent of her work on Teenage Dream—the album that Perry earned five No. 1 singles. In other words, expect this one to be on radios alllll summer long and, likely, give Katy her 10th No. 1 hit following "Dark Horse" topping the charts in January
