Katy Perry shows us exactly how falling in love feels and apparently, it’s just like getting hit by a car. Seriously. The star released the music video for “Unconditionally” and unlike many of her other videos that are fun, bright and tell a story, this one is simple, but beautiful.
“Unconditionally” is filled with beautiful shots, effects and Katy singing longly into the camera. While the video may seem kind of boring compared to her others videos, like “Roar” and “California Gurls,” it’s clear that she was going for a metaphor storyline that’s visually beautiful.

Katy spoke to MTV, who premiered the video, about the concept, saying, “It doesn’t have a complete narrative. I do that all the time; I usually have quite a big story line…. This time I wanted to give a lot of gorgeous, beautiful looks, which I don’t usually go for,” said Perry “But it’s mostly just a beautiful video that is supposed to evoke this power of love.”
“Unconditionally” is Katy’s second single off Prism and she revealed to Entertainment Weekly that the song is partially inspired by her boyfriend John Mayer, as well as a trip to Africa she took last year with UNICEF. “It's just a simple message about loving someone and accepting them and kind of driving at you don't have to be so self-conscious, you don't have to fear, because essentially, everybody has their stuff. Nobody comes stuff-free,” she said.
She added, "Everybody has their things and you're never going to be perfect, and accepting that and understanding that, especially in a relationship, it makes room for a real, genuine kind of love."
