Having just returned from a gorgeous five mile run with the iPhone on shuffle, I wanted to find the video for Katy Perry’s Not Like the Movies, which I’d heard half way through my sweaty excursion.
As happens every time I hear the song, the words hit me in the softest part of my heart. In my humble opinion it’s her most beautiful work yet; surprising that it hasn’t been on the radio as much as the others.
Some people say that the song is about a girl not finding her prince. I think it’s the opposite. I think it’s about knowing that he is out there somewhere and that love should be like it is in the movies! In that, there is hope.
How do you interpret it? Do you think it’s as pretty as I do?
