While there's no mention of Russell in the under two minute snippet, we get a good look at Katy's rise from evangelical Christian singer to the campy, technicolor pop star we know and love today.

"There was a lot of the word "no" being sent my way and I just never accepted that," she told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week. "It was overcoming a lot of people in the industry telling me it wasn't going to work."
