Katy Perry's 'California Gurls' Video a Little Too Sweet

Katy Perry's video for "California Gurls" premiered yesterday on MTV.com (click link to view) and let's just say if you watch it too many times, you may get a toothache. The song is just as catchy as any other tune we've come to expect from the radio-friendly pop princess, but the campy Candyland theme complete with a cupcake-clad Snoop Dogg may send you into a sugar coma.

Some of the highlights (low-lights?) from the video include: bird-flipping/militant dancing Gummi bears, Katy Perry, uh, naked (?) on a cloud of cotton candy, cupcake bras, and did we mention a cupcake-clad Snoop Dogg? (We did.)

Perry amps up the class in the final with her bra that shoots whipped cream. Did she have any right to blast Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" video last week? Because it seems like she's going for some cheap thrills of her own.

I will say, though: I'm digging the candy button dress.
