Wanna star in Katy Perry's new movie? Now you can
Katy Perry is taking a page out of the Justin Bieber playbook with her upcoming 3D concert movie Katy Perry: Part of Me, out this July. Perry's giving fans a chance to be the film. Want to join? Read on to find out how.
The movie will follow her on her recent California Dreams tour and give fans a backstage look at her life that will "reveal the highs and lows, and nuts of bolts of this extraordinary ride. I promise you, after seeing this film, you will truly know me," she said.
Sound familiar? Well, directors Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth did the same thing last year with Justin Bieber's 3D concert movie Never Say Never. The film cost $13 million to produce and racked up $100 million at the box office.
Will it be as successful as Bieber's film? We'll see — Perry's fans are intense, but not as driven as the Biebs'. However, she's setting her movie apart with a special contest that will give one fan the opportunity to have a role in the film.
"Here's your opportunity to be a part of Katy's movie!" reads a statement. Interested? Visit the official website to submit a video of yourself describing how she inspires you or a photo of you at one of her recent concerts. Got a singing voice? You can opt to submit a video of yourself singing her hit song "Firework."
Perry didn't elaborate on how the winning fan will be in the film, but we're going to assume it's in some sort of montage about Perry's life and work.
And how does the blue-haired singer feel about her fans?
"Thank you so much for believing in my weirdness," she tells fans in the film trailer. You're welcome, Katy.
