Katy Perry has been accused of plagiarising both the melody and the video for her new single, Roar. Pop fans have drawn similarities between Perry's recent releases and works by Sara Bareilles and Dillon Francis. Bright and propulsive, Roar was released yesterday — the lead single for Perry's forthcoming album, Prism. But about four months ago, the American singer Sara Bareilles released her own bright and propulsive single, a track called Brave. That song, which reached No 61 in the US, has a lot in common with Roar: several enterprising listeners have mashed the songs together , highlighting the similarities. The matter is even more controversial because Perry herself tweeted about Brave , saying in May that she "hearts" Bareilles. Meanwhile, as the Daily Swarm observed , moombahton DJ Dillon Francis has begun clamouring about the resemblance between Roar's lyric video and his own clip for the track Messages.

Title: Katy Perry: Roar Video After a plane crash in the Amazon, Katy Perry befriends the animals and out-roars a tiger to become Queen of the Jungle. Katy Perry is transformed from little wallflower in the shadow of her overbearing husband to Queen of the Jungle in this delightful jungle epic shot in for her song ROAR. After the tiger gets rid of the domineering male influence, she scampers off into the jungle, with torn clothing, and has a confrontation with a crocodile's big jaws snapping shut as she tries sipping water from a pool. Things look hectic, especially with all those eyes peering out at her in the dark, but she manages to survive. She swings from jungle vines, befriends the animals, and must have conquered a leopard for she wears his skin.
