Katy Perry is a pop-singing sensation and a successful host on the ‘American Idol’ reboot. She has solidified herself as one of the biggest recording stars of the 2000s. Her hit record ‘Teenage Dream’ propelled her to even more fame in 2010.
The energetic performance video, remastered in 4k, features Katy wearing sunglasses as her boyfriend drives her around in a beautiful convertible. She dances and sings inside the car while being playful with the driver.
When people pass by her in other cars, they cheer for her, and she waves back at them. Many teenagers are having fun at the beach while Katy walks with her boyfriend along the water.
Katy sings the lyrics, ‘You make me feel like I’m living a teenage dream. The way you turn me on, I can’t sleep. Let’s run away and don’t ever look back, don’t ever look back.’
The excitement builds to a huge block party with a cheering crowd. Katy sings, and at the end of the tune, she jumps in the pool with her boyfriend, and they share a kiss.
‘Teenage Dream’ is also the name of the album the song appears on. Katy Perry co-wrote the album and scored hits with songs like ‘California Gurls,’ ‘Firework,’ and ‘E.T.’ The album is only the second in history to land five number 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. The last to do it was Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad.’ The album has been certified 9 times Platinum.
