Bon Appétit - Katy Perry ft. Migos




The Experience: I'm on the menu... Katy Perry presents herself and every other girl as food to be devoured - an object to be used...


Music video: A team of chefs walk in to Katy Perry's bedroom-like freezer (or freezer-like bedroom) and prepare her to be main course. She enjoys the manipulation and the attention, but when it's time for her to be eaten, she turns the tables on the guests and eats them instead. To the already sex-centered lyrics, the video adds a dog eat dog viciousness: they want to use and abuse you... so turn the tables and use them instead.

The Meaning of Bon Appétit: The song is a fast-paced dialogue (complete with a fast heart-racing beat) between Katy Perry who offers herself (and her body complete with details - cherry pie) and Migos, who are more than happy to take her up on the offer. She offers seduction and sex, and she's confident that's what every boy wants - you want what I'm cooking. Is it? Over and over, men are portrayed as wanting one thing and one thing only. That's not fair. It sells men short. They can cherish. They can commit. They can protect. They can love. 

Ask yourself: Girls - do you believe men are capable of more? Men - will you prove yourself better?

Album: Witness (2017)

LYRICS:

[Katy Perry]
'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon a, bon appétit, baby

Looks like you've been starving
You've got those hungry eyes
You could use some sugar
'Cause your levels ain't right
I'm a five-star Michelin
A Kobe flown in
You want what I'm cooking, boy

Let me take you
Under candle light
We can wine and dine
A table for two
And it's okay
If you take your time
Eat with your hands, fine
I'm on the menu

'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon a, bon appétit, baby

So you want some more
Well, I'm open 24
Wanna keep you satisfied
Customer's always right
Hope you've got some room
For the world's best cherry pie
Gonna hit that sweet tooth, boy

Let me take you
Under candle light
We can wine and dine
A table for two
And it's okay
If you take your time
Eat with your hands, fine
I'm on the menu

'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon a, bon appétit, baby

'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon a, bon appétit, baby

[Quavo]
Sweet potato pie
It'll change your mind
Got you running to back for seconds
Every single night

[Takeoff]
I'm the one they say can change your life
No waterfall, she drippin' wet, you like my ice? (blast)
She say she want a Migo night now I ask her, “What's the price?” (hold on)
If she do right told her get whatever you like

[Offset]
I grab her legs and now divide, I
Make her do a donut when she ride, I
Looking at the eyes of a dime, make you blind
In her spine, and my diamonds change the climate

[Quavo]
Sweet tooth, no tooth fairy
No whipped cream, no dairy
She got her hot light on screaming, “I'm ready”
But no horses, no carriage

[Katy Perry]
Go ahead

'Cause I'm all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin'
Bon a, bon appétit, baby

Under candle light
Bon appétit, baby
