Skylar Grey x Papa Roach – “Periscope” BtS | Alt Press ::
“….Alt Press: What was the original meaning behind the song, and how did you make that come to life in the music video?
Jacoby Shaddix: Periscope is inspired by love and being loved and the realization that sometimes you might not be worth being loved, and the struggle within that—how much work it takes to make things work.

As far as the music video, we’re super happy with and proud of the video. One part I think is really special is when Skylar and I are in the shot at the same time but we’re not engaging with each other—I think that represents the disconnection within the song.

AP: How was it working with Skylar Grey on the video set? What was that energy like?
JS: Skylar—she’s badass. She’s calm, cool, collected, and had a very direct vision of how she wanted to look in this video. We have the utmost respect for her as an artist, and she brings such an amazing element to this song and video….”
