Did Katy Perry Totally Rip Off Sara Bareilles On Her New Song, “Roar”?

Did Katy Perry Totally Rip Off Sara Bareilles On Her New Song, "Roar"?
Imitation Is The Highest Form Of Flattery Or Something!

Apparently they're called earworms, and they're the worst. Read More »

One of the most talked about songs to hit the airwaves in recent weeks is Katy Perry’s latest, “Roar.” While I’m not a Katy fan, I must admit the tune is catchy, the kind of melody and beat that could very easily get stuck in your brain for days on end. Perhaps it’s that earworm-y quality that explains why “Roar” sounds really, really similar to another recent song from a female pop singer — Sara Bareilles’ “Brave.” Bareilles released “Brave” four months ago and Perry was among its fans, tweeting her approval at Bareilles herself. She liked it so much, she basically rerecorded it with different lyrics! Above, portions of the two songs, back to back. Katy, explain yourself! [Flavorwire]

“Total Eclipse Of The Heart” By One Woman With 19 Voices

Christina Bianco Diva Impressions
Cher! Judy Garland! Edith Piaf! Bette Midler! Alanis!

How would it sound if Celine Dion sang “Total Eclipse of the Heart”? What if she sang it and then passed the song off to Adele, who then passed it off to Barbra Streisand, Christina Aguilera and Shakira? Singer Christina Bianco has a show called “Diva Impressions,” and during a recent performance she sang the classic Bonnie Tyler hit as 19 different famous singers. Her Zooey Deschanel is so spot on. The whole thing is pitch perfect. [YouTube]

Robin Thicke Says “Blurred Lines” Is A “Feminist Movement”

Robin Thicke Says "Blurred Lines" Is A "Feminist Movement"
"It's actually a feminist movement in itself..."

Robin Thicke’s new album, Blurred Lines, is out today and to promote it, he performed on “The Today Show” this morning. When he was done makin’ it rain, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie asked him about the controversy surrounding the song “Blurred Lines”, namely that some critics think the lyrics are a bit, well, rapey. I happen to disagree — I love the song and think the lyrics are being misconstrued — but Robin Thicke really didn’t win any additional points with me with his asinine response to whether the song objectifies women. “…if you listen to the lyrics it says, ‘That man is not your maker.’ … It’s actually a feminist movement in itself. It’s saying that women and men are equals as animals and as power — you know, in power, and that we’re all supposed to just — it doesn’t matter whether you’re a good girl or a bad girl. You can still have a good time.” Yeah, yeah, that’s all fine and good, but “Blurred Lines” is a “feminist movement”? Thicke, please. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
