Katy Perry and Pokémon? It’s the “Teenage Dream” we didn’t expect to happen. In an article released on People.com, the singer was briefly interviewed on her new partnership, involving a music program for the franchise’s 25th anniversary. An (originally unlisted) trailer video was included with the article; you can view it below.
“I love being a part of anything that is playful and is good storytelling and has really good messages to share with the world,” Perry tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Now having a child myself, I understand that it’s so important to play. This is a continued extension of who I am.”
Katy Perry also said:
Growing up, Perry says she always related most to Pikachu. “I’m really attached to the hero. I know there are others in the game, but I just found Pikachu to be really cute,” she says.
“I understand the story of Pikachu. On the surface, you might just think I’m just cute, have a couple of cute songs,” she adds. “But if you dig deeper, you’ll realize ‘Chained to the Rhythm‘ is not just a fun little song!”
Are you looking forward to seeing how Katy works with The Pokémon Company?
