I’ve been noticing a slew of plagiarism stories lately and I’ve mostly been filing them away to think about later. I’m still recovering from finishing the dissertation! However, this one caught my eye because it has the potential to be so similar to the Taylor Swift plagiarism “scandal” I wrote about a few months back. (I’ve actually written a bit about Katy Perry before, too.) The question this time is whether a Katy Perry song, “Roar”, is too similar to Sara Bareilles song “Brave.” I first saw the story on Jezebel.
Once again, Tweets are evidence. Katy Perry said that she “liked” the song (Jezebel’s word) back when it came out:
It will be interesting to see how this develops.
