Coming out a mere week after her marriage to Russell Brand, Katy Perry's 'Firework' video might be the closest to her real persona as we've seen from the pop star. The video was a collaboration between Perry and director Dave Meyers, who immediately noticed the personal tone in the song. "I felt 'Firework' was very personal, and I was very drawn to that," Meyers explained to MTV. "We wanted to articulate the meaning of that song: what it means to be an underdog and have the courage, if you're on the outskirts of society, to be your own person."
The video was not only personal for Perry, but also for the 250 Katy Perry fans who won the opportunity to be featured in the video. Shot in Budapest, the 'Firework' video also features real people -- as in, not actors -- from Hungary, in an attempt to make the video as far removed from Hollywood as possible.
