Katy Perry's 'Roar' Video Sees Singer As Queen Of The Jungle

Katy Perry is one with the jungle in the new video for her song "Roar," which made its debut on Thursday. The singer brings the song's chorus to life in a pretty literal fashion, channeling the "eye of the tiger" as she carouses with creatures of all sizes in the wake of a plane crash that leaves her stranded (glamour still intact, of course). Don't worry, she survives -- in fact, she thrives, thanks to her new elephant and monkey friends. Oh, and that crocodile she bathes with helps out, too.

"Roar" marks the first single from Perry's upcoming third album, "Prism." The song is currently enjoying a run at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, where it dethroned Robin Thicke's 12-week victory for "Blurred Lines."

Check out a behind-the-scenes featurette for the video:
