Katy Perry has never shied away from theatrics, and the singer obviously loves to go all out for her music videos, but in the clip for her new single "Birthday" Katy takes things to a new level by portraying five of the worst party entertainers that ever lived.

Don't be surprised to see Katy transitioning into feature films soon, as she demonstrates seriously impressive comedic acting chops playing: Goldie, Yosef Shulum, Kriss the Clown, Ace the Animal Trainer, and Princess Mandee, whose Twitter handle is way too long to reproduce here.

Yesterday's preview prepared us for Katy dressing as a clown and causing car accidents, but we never would've expected an 8-minute epic of a music video in which the singer performs a striptease for the elderly, eats a mouse, and describes herself as a "sh!t cake."

Yes, it really has to be seen to be believed.

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.

Watch out! Katy Perry is ROARing about a social media phenomenon taking over the world. Oh yes, we're talking about the selfie.

Katy Perry says selfies are a disease and refused to take one for a fan this weekend at Coachella. She relented, but only after the fan agreed to be in the photo with Perry, and not without tweeting out a message to her KatyCats.

Katy Perry Selfies

A study recently found that selfie-taking is linked to increased narcissism and mental illness. In her mind, refusing to take the selfie and sharing a warning with her fans was probably a public service announcement, but we kind of think more pictures of Katy Perry in the world does just as much good.

It's true that a glance at Katy Perry's Instagram feed shows only a few selfies, but that doesn't stop her from being photographed while all glammed up and nearly naked for various magazines and music videos.

Katy Perry's just released video for "Dark Horse" is what a trip through what Ancient Egypt might have looked like... if you were on acid.

"Memphis, Egypt: a crazy long time ago..." reads the title card. Crazy is right.

It's like all her extras wandered off the set of the next Hunger Games movie. Katy must be representing whatever district handles naked snake wrangling. And pole dancing.

Which part is better: When she gets super mad over what appear to be crunchy Cheetos or when she turns the dude into sand so she can steal his bejeweled grill?

Or maybe Jiff the Pomeranian's cameo? Because nothing says "ancient Egypt" like a fluffy dog famous on the internet.

"Dark Horse," which features Academy Award winner Juicy J, is the third single of Katy's album Prism.

The video is quite a change from her goth-inspired Grammy performance earlier this year, though both are equally bizarre...

Five decades after changing the music scene forever, The Beatles brought artists from a variety of genres together last night.

Exactly 50 years to the date after John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr debuted on The Ed Sullivan Show, CBS aired "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles."

It featured such acts as Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry, all paying tribute to the legendary band via covers of their greatest hits.

And the event concluded with the group's two surviving members, McCartney and Starr, singing a duet of "Hey Jude."

We have no idea why Justin Bieber wasn't invited to participate, but take in a number of memorable performances from the evening now:

Katy Perry and John Mayer sort of dissed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres today.

The cute couple joked with Ellen about how their own cheesy music video for "Who You Love" stacks up with Kimye's much-parodied love-fest.

"Was it your response to Kim and Kanye's 'Bound 2?'" she asked.

"Yes. I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction, though," Katy Perry joked of the video.

"She was facing backwards, right? So her hair should have been [blowing the other direction]," DeGeneres added of Kim straddling her baby daddy.

In the "Who You Love" video, Perry, Mayer and other couples ride a mechanical bull together. A metaphor for rocky relationships, perhaps? Sounds like it.

John Mayer, Katy Perry and a mechanical bull star in the new music video for "Who You Love, the third single off of the singer-songwriter's Paradise Valley album.

Premiering today on Good Morning America, the video features Mayer, Perry and other couples riding a mechanical bull before shooting off confetti cannons.

"We set a casting call up for real couples. It's just so authentic ... they were having a great time," Mayer, 36, says of the collaboration with his girlfriend.

"There's nothing scripted except putting the bull in the middle of the desert."

Katy adds, "Relationships are kind of like riding a bull  ... you hold on for dear life. Sometimes you get a little a little buck here and there, but you get back on."

She was up for the collaboration ... both personally and professionally.

"[John]'s just a fantastic partner," she added. "I've been a fan of his for such a long time. He's got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It's a rad, mature relationship."

Check out the video we posted earlier Tuesday of Katy Perry lip-syncing live, then watch an interview with Mayer and his girlfriend after the jump ...
