Katy Perry Heads Into the Jungle for 'Roar' (Video)

The pop star's music video makes its debut on the same day the single tops No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Katy Perry is going into the wild.

Making its official debut Sept. 5, the "Roar" music video takes Perry to the jungle where she is stranded with her safari-dressed boyfriend after their plane crashes. The pop star is left feeling even more vulnerable when her other half is mauled by a tiger when they try to navigate through the dense forest at night.

But in the spirit of "Roar," she manages to acclimate nicely in the wild as she swings across the trees like Jane from Tarzan, befriends a monkey named Ripley, which she shared in a teaser, and other wild animals.

Perry shows she's the queen of the jungle as she out-roars a wild tiger. The feline is later seen wearing a necklace that reads, "kitty purry."

With an eye of tiger, Perry's "Roar" also hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Thursday, making this her eighth single to top that list.

On Sept. 6, the "Teenage Dream" singer will appear on Good Morning America to reveal the cover for her upcoming album, PRISM, on the Times Square jumbotrons. Perry will also be making a special announcement during her appearance.
