My husband and I went to see Katy Perry: Part of Me in 3D on opening night and it was SO good I just had to blog about it. Being a concert enthusiast and fan of Katy Perry certainly added to my enjoyment of the film - it was like having an on-stage seat to her concert - but the takeaway message of perseverance, belief in yourself and staying strong despite life's obstacles, is something everyone can relate to.
I absolutely adore Katy Perry...her talent and energy just pop right off the screen. It's as if the 3D glasses let you glimpse her indomitable spirit. Singing along to all of my favorite songs was so much fun, but seeing Katy triumph over heartbreak was by far the best part of the movie for me.
And it definitely gives new meaning to the "Wide Awake" video above, especially the very end (you'll know when you see the movie). I cannot watch that video without crying at the scenes of her and her inner child now. Heart! Wrenching!
I hate how her kind heart was trampled on but am so happy to see her finding herself again. The Prince Charming scene at around minute 3:25 exemplifies that and I'm pretty sure every woman that's ever had her heart broken by someone feels that sense of victory along with her as she knocks him out cold.
If you're someone facing a tough time in life, are being held back from your dreams, or just need a positive, uplifting message, you should really go see this movie! I loved it so much I'm going to go see it again with my little girl (and I can't wait for her to soak in the message of love, faith and perseverance.)
And whenever Katy tours again in my area, I will move mountains to make sure I am there! It won't be the same as being right on stage with her as one is in this movie, but I know it will still completely rock!
