Last year, when Katy Perry released her smash hit "Roar," Sara Bareilles fans went nuts, saying that Perry ripped off "Brave," which is Bareilles' anthem of support for those who are coming out.
Bareilles has gone on record many times to say that she doesn't think Perry "stole" her melody and that all that press among the fans and the media chatter about the two songs actually helped propel Bareilles' song to even greater notoriety and recognition.
"I can't say that I think that they don't sound similar," Bareilles said, hinting that maybe she does hear a similarity. But she's not mad about it. "I've known Katy a really long time, and we're friends." She also said that the media gossip about the songs sounding slightly alike is "only really good for my song. So, thank you, Katy Perry, for that."
So they sound alike but it ended up helping Bareilles' song. End. Of. Story.
Okay, let's stoke the fires again. Do you think Katy Perry's "Roar" sounds too much like Sara Bareilles' "Brave?"
