Katy Perry: Me and John Mayer's Video Was A Response To Kanye's "Bound 2" (VIDEO)
(AllHipHop News) Kanye West just got some friendly competition from the most unlikely source. During a recent interview with her boyfriend John Mayer on The Ellen Degeneres Show, Katy Perry claimed the pair's new "Who You Love" video was "more authentic" than Kanye West's "Bound 2".
Pointing out Kim Kardashian's hair blowing in the wrong direction, Perry lamented hers and Mayer's "Who You Love" video as a response to Kanye's "Bound 2":
Yes. I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction, though.
During his The Breakfast Club interview, West spoke on intentionally making certain elements of his "Bound 2" video fake:
I wanted it to look as phony as possible. I wanted the clouds to go in one direction, the mountains to go in another, the horses to go over there, I wanted to show that this is the Hunger Games, this is the type of imagery that's being presented to all of us, the only difference is there's a black dude in the middle of it.
Perry and West collaborated in the past and even won the 2011 MTV Video Music Award for Best Collaboration for the video for their song "E.T."
Here is the original video with Mayer and Perry:
And here is their inspiration, Kanye's "Bound 2," which features Kim Kardashian.
