Even Katy Perry Is Obsessed With Emojis

Stars: They're just like us. As evidenced by the lyric video for her awesome new song.

Earlier today Katy Perry released a lyric video for her latest single, "Roar," from her forthcoming album, Prism.

This is the first we've seen from her since her two album teasers. The first showed Perry setting fire to her blue "California Gurls" wig, and the second depicted a funeral for her Teenage Dream era, complete with a bright pink casket. A new Katy Perry is on her way!

Here's the video:

What makes the video for "Roar" especially interesting is that it's done entirely with emojis and images of Perry texting in mundane, everyday situations... just like you and me!

She texts as soon as she wakes up, while still in bed.

She texts while riding in a car...

...and while exercising.

She literally texts everywhere, even while ON THE TOILET.

Everyone uses their smartphones on the toilet. I mean everyone. Don't front.

Perhaps she drew inspiration from Aziz Ansari's "Emojis in Paris (N****s in Paris Remix)"?

Either way, it's AWESOME.
