Kate Perry, "ET" (2011)



Italian Version Here

When the upcoming of 2012, mass media see an explosion of alien and hermetic themes. This "E.T." (2011) of Kate Perry is no exception, as we can see from the cover of the album here above, and from the video that could be easily found on Youtube.

The text of the song of the video is also filled of extra-terrestrial symbolism. In fact, Kate Perry seems to speak of her lover with a metaphorical comparison with an Alien: but we can also read the text as a sort of "alien profecy". And Kate shows a certain knowledge of ufological beliefs.

You're so hypnotizing
 Could you be the devil
Could you be an angel
Your touch magnetizing
 Feels like I am floating
Leaves my body glowing
They say be afraid
You're not like the others
Futuristic lover
Different DNA 

Here te singer is clearly speaking of an abduction: the "Other" is hypnotizing her, he can be an Angel or a Devil (both are aliens in the ufological traditions), she feels floating, leaves her body, and her "futuristic lover" has a different DNA.

They don't understand you
Your from a whole other world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I'm ready to go
Lead me into the light
Kiss me, ki-ki-kiss me
Infect me with your love
and Fill me with your poison
 Take me, ta-ta-take me
Wanna be a victim
Ready for abduction

In this second part the term abduction is explicit, and even Kate sings her love for the alien that "leads her into the light", his love is a venomous poison.

Boy, you're an alien
Your touch are foreign
It's supernatural
Extraterrestrial
Your so supersonic
Wanna feel your powers
Stun me with your lasers
Your kiss is cosmic
Every move is magic


There is this transcendental
On another level Boy,
 you're my lucky star
 I wanna walk on your wave length
 And be there when you vibrate
For you I'll risk it all.


The last part does not add much more ("walk on your wave lenghth" may be an allusion to brain control). The interesting thing is the continuous double level, "metaphorical alien" and "real alien", which the songs mantains: an "Odi et Amo" like Catullo in the first case, the allusion to evil aliens in the second.
