Katy Perry left children in tears at a recent birthday party when she dressed up like a clown and went insane, she confessed to Jimmy Kimmel in a recent interview.
All in the name of her "Birthday" music video shoot. Not just for kicks.
She wanted to go a dramatically different route on "Birthday", she told Kimmel, because she was tired of filming such wonderful, sexual music videos.
Seriously. Enough is enough with the over-the-top, sexy productions.
She said she wanted to dress in the most unappealing way possible.
Perry was serious about the change in tone, sabotaging a real party dressed like a clown, attacking a dude with a piñata stick, and staging a scary car accident.
The hidden camera gag was shot at Knollwood Country Club outside L.A. this month. While she revealed the stunt on Kimmel, she didn't mention the crazy fallout.
