    Singer Sara Bareilles isn't mad at Katy Perry after critics claimed that "ROAR" sounded way too much like Bareilles' own "Brave." Haters even accused Perry of stealing the melody. Bareilles doesn't mind, though. The association with Perry's monster hit helped increase "Brave" sales.

    "I was stoked," Bareilles said. "I was like, 'Great.' I was like, 'You guys want to go get (mad) about something and buy my music? That's great.' I don't feel like anything was taken from me artistically. I wasn't the one having any problems with it. I've known Katy a long time. We are friends and she and I spoke about it. I look at it as two female artists who are releasing a message of empowerment."

    What a class act Sara B. is!

    Bareilles was more mad at fans for being aggro and attacking Perry as a thief, via online comments. "To be totally honest, I was sort of disappointed in how aggressive fans were being about it. I don't promote drama in my life and competition and stuff like that," Bareilles said.





    Do you prefer "ROAR" or "Brave?" Or do you love both?
