It’s the lyric video you didn’t ask for but the one “the internet needs,” at least according to Katy Perry who dropped the visuals for her song “Swish Swish” on Monday.
The vibrant music video features Brazilian popstar turned GIF icon, Gretchen, known in her home country as “Rainha do Bumbum” (“Queen of Butt”). Living up to her namesake, the Meme Queen delivers some serious booty-shaking in the new video.
