Katy Perry's 'Firework' an Inspiring New Single

Thank gosh Katy Perry chose to release something meaningful for her third single, not just a song about Daisy Dukes or losing your virginity. No, her current single, "Firework," is a very inspirational track that her fans really need to hear. It's a song all about believing in yourself and letting your personality shine.

She starts off the song singing, "Do you ever feel like a plastic bag drifting through the wind wanting to start again?...There's still a chance for you, 'cause there's a spark in you, you just got to ignite the light and let it shine." She's singing this song to everyone: all the misfits who might feel like they don't have a place in the world. Perry's message is that everyone has something meaningful, and everyone deserves to show it off to the world.

She continues, "You don't have to feel like a waste of space. You're original, cannot be replaced. If you only knew what the future holds, after a hurricane comes a rainbow." She's telling her fans, when times get hard, don't lose hope. Keep believing in yourself, and things will get better.

This is such a beautiful message out on pop radio today, because so many celebrities are manufactured, plastic people society so often looks up to. Perry is saying that everyone is beautiful, no matter what they look like on the outside.

What is even cooler than the lyrics themselves is that Perry is dedicating this track to the It Gets Better campaign, an effort to eliminate bullying of gay teens. Appropriately, the video features youth overcoming fears about coming out, as well as body image, terminal illness and domestic violence. It's a gorgeous tear jerker, and Perry is to be commended for featuring diversity in a video for such a beautiful song.
