Did Katy Perry rip off Sara Bareilles?

Rumor on the street has it that Katy Perry has ripped off Sara Bareilles. After Katy released her new single “Roar” on Saturday (below), many fans hit the web saying that Perry had ripped off Sara Bareilles‘ song, “Brave.” Furthering their proof, fans pointed out that Katy even gave Sara’s song a shout-out back in May (when she had to have been song-writing herself).

I’ve listened to both songs, and I don’t really see it. I mean sure – they’re similar – but I think it’s quite a stretch to say that Katy ripped her off. The Hollywood Reporter weighed in this morning:

Listening to the opening bars of Perry’s new tune is definite cause for déjà vu for anyone who’s heard the Bareilles track, an inspirational song co-written by Jack Antonoff of fun. that’s already being hailed as an LGBT anthem, though opinions differ sharply over how much more the tracks have in common after that. Still, one of the hotter web memes of the moment is a mash-up which has Perry’s new hit “layered over” Bareilles’ lesser known single, which peaked at No. 61 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 11 on the Adult Pop Songs chart.

One thing’s for sure, Sara definitely isn’t minding all the attention her song is getting. What’s funny is I had never even heard Sara’s song before this morning, and to be honest – I like “Brave” much better than “Roar!” What a great song! Here’s what Sara had to say on the matter:

Here’s Katy’s song, “Roar.” What do you think? Did Katy rip her off?
