Just days after “Roar” leaked online, plagiarism allegations have already surfaced. Critics of Katy Perry’s latest accuse it of sounding very similar to Sara Bareille’s “Brave.”
Whether intentional or just coincidental, Bareilles doesn’t seem bothered by the supposed plagiarism. She squashed any ill feelings by tweeting her followers over the weekend with, “All love, everybody. All love.” Personally, I can hear the similarity in the beat, but that happens quite often nowadays
It begins with a woman (probably Katy) picking up a phone and then proceeds to text friends. Instead of gossip, the conversation entails texting the song lyrics, substituting some words for Emojis. She maybe out of her Teenage Dream days, but she’s still a teen at heart with this clip. Check out the lyric video below
