VIDEO: New, scary, goth Katy Perry lights the old Katy Perry's hair on fire

Maybe you've heard of Katy Perry. She once kissed a girl and she liked it, but you're probably more familiar with her for her teenage dreams and for her affinity for July 4th celebratory traditions. Now, homegirl is back on our radar as she readies her latest effort, Roar, for its August 12th release.

On Friday, Perry and company released a 30-second teaser video to promote the ambiguous new offering. In it, a gothed-up version of the Katy Perry that your mom likes to listen to is shown standing in the dark holding a Zippo. She uses that Zippo to light that ridiculous blue wig she used to wear on fire. The new Katy Perry is scary. We think we like it.
