Katy Perry as ‘Goldie,’ a retired Vegas dancer, in her ‘Birthday’ teaser video.

Hopefully this is not what Katy Perry will look like in 40 years.

The "Unconditionally" singer, 29, transforms into a boozy retired Vegas dancer named Goldie for her newest music video.

"Have you ever heard that song 'The Lady is a Tramp'? That might be about me," she says as Goldie in the teaser clip for "Birthday."

While the full-length music video debuts Thursday, Perry introduces several characters — all her in heavy disguise — in a minute-long clip that debuted online Monday.

The "Wide Awake" singer also becomes a Jewish MC named "Yosef Shulem," a seedy Craigslist clown, an animal trainer named Ace and a social-media-savvy princess named Mandee.

Together they are supposed to be the world's worst birthday party entertainers.

Perry, who says the new video will be her "most insane" one yet, has previously dressed up or gone undercover for many of her videos, including "Last Friday Night (TGIF)" and "E.T."
