Katy Perry is a sexy Egyptian Queen on a stripper pole in new Dark Horse video

There's no denying that she likes to go to town with her big-budget, glossy music videos.

And Katy Perry's latest offering is no different as she dances around a stripper pole dressed as an Egyptian Queen.

The pop star's new vid for single Dark Horse sees her dressed as a sultry Cleopatra, sorry 'Katy-Patra', who roams around a hip-hop version of ancient Egypt, killing men.

Clearly trying to deliver some kind of feminist message, the 29-year-old spends a lot of the time being waited on by men, before dusting off some of her more provocative dance moves.

The star, who recently said she would be leaving the risque dancing to the likes of Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, seemed to be going back on her word as she certainly seemed to be trying to give them a run for her money.

Joined by rapper Juicy J, the star gyrates up and down a pole flanked by backing dancers and proves her flexibility by doing the splits - which is pretty darn impressive.

And it seems that KP certainly splashed the cash on the glossy new video - which looks like it has a seriously high production value.

In one scene, the singer even goes completely nude as and is painted head-to-toe in silver with a gold snake wrapped around her body.

Katy was heavily promoting the new video on Twitter ahead of the release, writing: "Are you ready for, ready for...the #DARKHORSEVIDEO?!? The countdown is ON! 2 hours till you meet KATY-PATRA!"

She added: "One more hour until a perfect storm...#DARKHORSEVIDEO.''

The night before the video release, Katy was letting her hair down at the Brit Awards in London, where we spotted her partying until late at the Warner afterparty.
