If you were told that Katy Perry
was releasing a single called 'Waking Up In Vegas', what would you expect? A cheeky tale of drunken debauchery and a video featuring loads of poker, Perry in a showgirl outfit and... erm... an actual elephant? Yup, that's pretty much exactly what she's given us.
But even though 'Vegas' feels a little obvious, it's still hard not to sucked in. Opening with the sound of slot machines, this is a giddy pop-rock romp featuring an ace sing-along chorus and lines like "Did we get hitched last night? Dressed up like Elvis?" Proof that when she's not trying too hard to be outrageous, Perry can be lots of fun.> Click here to read our review of Katy Perry's album
