Katy Perry reveals how John Mayer (and Africa!) inspired her emotional new single 'Unconditionally' -- EXCLUSIVE

Pop superstar Katy Perry’s new album Prism comes out next Tuesday, Oct. 22 (you can stream the full album now at katyperry.com and read EW music critic Nick Catucci’s review here) but the singer has now officially released the second single, “Unconditionally.” An emotional, soaring ballad, the song is Perry’s favorite on the album and was actually inspired by Perry’s current love, John Mayer, and a recent trip she took. “‘Unconditionally’ was influenced by my boyfriend and also really influenced by Africa,” Perry reveals to EW. “I went to Madagascar and did a UNICEF trip that changed my life and gave me this song. It’s just a simple message about loving someone and accepting them and kind of driving at you don’t have to be so self-conscious, you don’t have to fear, because essentially, everybody has their stuff. Nobody comes stuff-free. Everybody has their things and you’re never going to be perfect, and accepting that and understanding that, especially in a relationship, it makes room for a real, genuine kind of love.”

The True Blood actor/poster child for Swedish genetics gets vaguely messianic (and wiggy) in the new video for Australian electro band Cut Copy’s “Free Your Mind.” Also, he takes his clothes off — as he do.

Miley Cyrus goes wild at school in Mike Will Made It's '23' video: Watch it here

The ’90s gave birth to Miley Cyrus, and now she’s returning the favor by paying homage to the decade of Cross Colors and Saved by the Bell.

In the new Mike Will Made It clip for “23,” Cyrus parades around a high school wearing “sexy” Chicago Bulls jerseys and  vintage Jordans while making references to Naughty By Nature and MC Hammer. She smokes cigarettes, graffitis the bathroom, and generally runs amok.

Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Zack Morris also join in on the shenanigans, all at the chagrin of the uptight school principal Mr. Belding. Just kidding! Partly.

It’s also reminiscent of another ’90s classic, Master P’s “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!” video. Take a look below: READ FULL STORY

The love-and-pugilism song comes behind “Take Back the Night” and, as expected, is a Timbaland-produced jam that runs around seven minutes. Give a listen below:
