Katy Perry Crashes Kids' Parties As an Androgynous Clown in "Birthday" Video

Yesterday, Katy Perry teased her upcoming video for "Birthday" with this (hilarious? horrifying?) trailer and stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss her intentions. "I was sick of making gorgeous music videos, where I'm, like, sexual," she told Kimmel. "I just felt like that can get boring sometimes." 

To spice things up, Perry has dons five different birthday entertainer costumes and visits real kids' birthday parties in her new video. And by "visits" we actually mean "ruins."

In the clip above, you can see her as Kriss the Klown, a drunken "androgynous" clown "on parole." Watch her swing wildly at a pinata, drift into the street and cause a truck to smash into a parked car while guests look on in horror. We promise you will, too. 

Perry is currently gearing up for her Prismatic world tour which begins on June 22 at Raleigh's PNC Arena. Recently, she recorded an upcoming episode of CMT Crossroads with Kacey Musgraves and also tried her hand at being a weather reporter
