Katy Perry ruins 5-year-old's birthday party dressed as clown in hidden camera prank for new video
Katy Perry ruined a five-year-old’s birthday party - all in the name of her new music video.
Witnesses told showbiz website TMZ that children at the event were left in tears after the stunt.
The pop star decided to disguise herself as 'five of the world’s worst birthday entertainers' as part of the music video for new single 'Birthday'.
She dressed up as a clown who’s on parole and not very good at his job, pranking a child’s real-life birthday celebrations at Knollwood Country Club outside LA.
The clown then pretends to have some sort of breakdown and following a brief battle with the piñata, Perry runs out into the street and causes a fake car-crash. H
The party goers were completely unaware they were part of the video - hidden cameras were used to film the action unfold.
The singer says that guests had no idea that the accident was a joke.
An upset child is overheard saying, “Mommy, I want to leave”, according to the website.
Perry says that he idea for the new video came because she was fed up dressing in skimpy revealing outfits for her videos.
“I was sick of making gorgeous music videos where I’m sexual,” said Perry on the Jimmy Kimmel Show this week.
“That can get boring sometimes and you ned to flip it on its head.”
While she's been busy becoming other people, Katy recently showed she doesn't know as much about herself as one of her fans does.
The Dark Horse singer agreed to a game of trivia about herself against a fan during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! - and lost.
Katy and superfan Emily were quizzed about the star's career in the game - titled Who Knows Katy? - and the singer wasn't quick enough at hitting the buzzer to beat her opponent.
Emily even answered more quickly than Katy when asked the name of the star's parents.
