Katy Perry Keeps Calm in an Exploding World in 'Unconditionally': VIDEO


Katy Perry's video for "Unconditionally" debuted this morning.

It's a visual dynamo about trusting the one you love, complete with snow, fire, flower petals, owls, and undersea car accidents. It also gives a moment to this intensely engaged couple who seem to have found each other about halfway through the clip.

RoadArchaeologists unearth pre-Viking age monuments in Sweden: "As archaeologists dug in preparation for a new railway line, they found traces of two rows of wooden pillars in Old Uppsala, an ancient pagan religious center. One stretched about 1,000 yards (1 kilometer) and the other was half as long. Archaeologist Lena Beronius-Jorpeland said the colonnades were likely from the 5th century but their purpose is unclear. She called it Sweden's largest Iron Age construction and said the geometrical structure is unique. Old Uppsala is known as a center for Norse religion, where believers gathered to sacrifice animals to gods such as Odin and Thor. The colonnades were found near a famous burial site where the three Iron Age kings Aun, Egil and Adils are believed to be buried."

Gay Army Ranger Asks Katy Perry To The Ball: VIDEO

Openly gay United States Army Ranger Ken Yasger took to YouTube last week to ask Katy Perry to be his date for the Ranger Ball. Yasger is not the first to ask Perry to be his plus one for a military ball. As The Daily Mail points out, Perry was asked out to the Navy Ball in 2012 by fighter pilot Lieutenant Clayton Heyward. However, Yasger, who is a devout Katy Perry fan, made a personal appeal to Perry, discussing how much her music has meant to him as he serves abroad and as the first openly gay ranger in his unit. The International Business Times reports:

KenAccording to Yasger, Perry’s three studio albums and film “Part of Me” have been his solace while serving overseas, telling the singer that her music speaks to him in a way no other artists does. “Katy you’re inspiration to me in a lot of ways and this is what this video is for. This is the reason I'm inviting you and no other celebrity,” he said, adding his struggles with being an openly gay ranger have been nullified through listening to her singles, specifically the 2012 hit song, “Wide Awake.” “Your music really helped me get through it. I had family, friends, they helped me also but I’d wake up in the morning and I’d been feeling really down… I’d listen to it while I got ready in the morning. No matter how down I felt I would listen to that song and It would really help me get started for the day," he said.

Yasger follows in the footsteps of many other members of the armed forces who have used YouTube to ask celebrities to attend military balls as their dates. In 2011 Cpl. Kelsey De Santis successfully persuaded Justin Timberlake to attend the Marine Corps Ball with her. That same year Mila Kunis attended the Marine Corps Ball as the date of Sgt. Scott Moore. Both celebrities were wooed by their respective dates' online appeals.
