As Katy Perry continues her chart-topping dominance with her sophomore album Teenage Dream, today she releases the new video for “Firework”, her third single from the album.

As an avid supporter of the It Gets Better movement against the bullying of gay teens, Perry tweeted to Perez Hilton last night that the video is dedicated to the cause because, “everyone has the spark to be a firework.”

“People are coming back and almost adopting it as their own anthem, and it’s hard, I think, to write an anthem that’s not cheesy,” she told MTV News. “And I hope that this could be something in that category. I hope this could be one of those things where it’s like, ‘Yeah, I want to put my fist up and feel proud and feel strong.'”
