Premiere: Katy Perry takes over Egypt as Katy Patra in 'Dark Horse' music video

Pop singer Katy Perry premiered the music video for her single "Dark Horse" on Thursday. As the comical Katy Patra, she searches for a suitor in the sands of Egypt.

"Dark Horse" is the third single from Perry's latest album "Prism." Her trap-tastic pop tune with rapper Juicy J hit no. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart earlier this month. It follows fellow no. 1 hit "Roar" and the heartfelt ballad "Unconditionally."

Perry is never one to skimp on a good music video. "Dark Horse" is another extravagant yet kooky clip in her arsenal. As the urban queen Katy Patra, she tries to find a suitor in Egypt with hilarious results. All the men that approach Katy's throne come with various offerings like jewelery and Hot Cheetohs. It's never enough though and she turns the rejects into sand. Juicy J later appears in a cool cameo where he comes out of a sarcophagus.

Perry's "Prism" album was released last year in October and it peaked at no. 1 on Billboard's albums chart.
