Katy Perry Gets Artsy With ‘Unconditionally’ Lyric Video

She is singing passionately to a distressed-looking young chap — also naked and resembling the pouty-lipped offspring of Lorde and Leonardo DiCaprio. He is clearly unhappy and unsettled. They are never in the same frame. Until the very end, of course … when you realize it’s two women!
Overall, it feels like an actual music video. It’s simple, but it’s powerful. The two actresses — actually, these two unfairly pretty and genetically blessed creatures are probably models — convey a lot of emotion in their eyes and body language throughout the course of the video.
Perry’s words are profound — she’s singing about letting go and learning to love again, despite the risks — and this clip allows them to be the focus.
