Now that I see this edit without Kanye, I wonder why they even added him on at all in the first place? The song and the video are just as strong-if not stronger-without him. At the end of the day, this video is great! It may not have the strongest story line, but it is visually stunning. With this era, Katy has really made her mark as a real artist and she's here to stay. Take notes Ke$ha!
