Katy Perry Releases Dessert-Heavy ‘Birthday’ Lyric Video

If “Birthday” doesn’t make you want to be the object of Katy Perry’s affection, then you must not have much of a sweet tooth.

The pop star released a lyric video for her next single today and it’s all cakes and cupcakes and icing galore to match the song’s sticky-sweet lyrics. We even get a hint of Katy in this one, via the ladies’ nail art displayed as a pair of hands intermittently come on the screen to move things along. It’s a return to that Teenage Dream-era, lighter-than-air sugar kisses thing that Perry does so well, but apparently this time it’s all too real.
