The reason Katy Perry: Part Of Me is so effective is that, while pop singer Perry is its ostensible subject, it’s not really about her at all – it’s about you. It’s about you, the gawky young dreamer with a talent your family and friends don’t yet understand. It’s about you, who are so pretty and don’t even realise it. It’s about you, who will one day show them all. It’s about you, a firework just waiting to explode. Well, okay, maybe that’s not you specifically, but it’s certainly a large chunk of Perry’s young fanbase, and the target demographic for this very strange film. Part Of Me is part-3D concert film and part-documentary, but mostly, it’s an exercise in empowerment. It’s an hour-and-a-half-long affirmation that if you follow your dreams, you too can burn as brightly as Katy Perry.
