Well, this may get all the Egyptologists (and illuminati enthusiasts) in a tizzy! But don’t take what you’re about to see too seriously; Katy Perry teased the video for her single “Dark Horse” over the weekend, in which her Cleopatra–inspired character “Katy Patra” rocked a bejeweled grill, so just know the full clip expounds on the silliness.
As the teaser expained, "Every eclipse, kings would travel from Brooklyn to Babylon to win her heart. If she fell in love, you’d be top dawg. If she didn’t, her wrath would leave you whimpering." Katy Patra sits as ruler on her throne, approached by many men trying to woo her with gifts such as a gargantuan diamond, Twinkies and hot Cheetos, to a pimped-out chariot complete with spinners and hydraulics.
The suitors vying for her hand coincide with the lyrics which “warn this man not to fall in love with me, and if you do, know I'm going to be your last," Perry told MTV last summer.
