According to various media outlets, Taylor Swift sneakily involved herself in the Katy Perry vs. Sara Bareilles dispute over the songs ‘Brave’ and ‘Roar’. For those of you who don’t know, Katy Perry has recently come under a little fire about the similarities of her song ‘Roar’ to Sara Bareilles’ ‘Brave’. Swift performed in Los Angeles on Monday night with guest appearances from Cher and Bareilles. Prior to a duet with Bareilles, Swift spoke to the crowd. You tell me if this isn’t directed towards Katy Perry.
“Guys, there’s a song that came out a few months ago….This song is so beautifully written. It’s so original. It’s something I’ve listened to hundreds and hundreds of times by an artist who I absolutely adore.”
To see the entire quote from Swift prior to the duet you can hit this link. I think the wording in the statement is pretty much fired right at Katy Perry. Neither Perry nor Bareilles has commented on the song comparison. If you’ve heard them it’s easy to see why this has become a news story. And now Taylor Swift has thrown her hat into the ring. Perhaps Katy Perry liked the song so much she felt like she wanted to replicate it because she Tweeted how much she liked it back in May. Oh well, at the end of the day we aren’t losing sleep over this one.
