Katy Perry Shares New Song and Video for ‘365’ With Zedd
Katy Perry and Zedd dropped their new track “365” and the song’s accompanying video Thursday.
After teasing the release on social media all morning, Katy Perry and Zedd finally shared the new video for the song, directed by Warren Fu. The video features an AI version of Perry who attempts to seduce Zedd.
The new music follows a tumultuous few days for Perry, who fans criticized for a shoe design that resembled blackface.
Dillard’s, Walmart and other retailers who sold the shoes, have pulled them from shelves.
Perry has also apologized for the controversy, saying the designs were meant to “channel modern art and surrealism.”
In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, Perry said:
“The Rue and The Ora were part of a collection that was released last summer in 9 different colorways (black, blue, gold, graphite, lead, nude, pink, red, silver) and envisioned as a nod to modern art and surrealism. I was saddened when it was brought to my attention that it was being compared to painful images reminiscent of blackface. Our intention was never to inflict any pain. We have immediately removed them from katyperrycollections.com.”
