Watch This: A Glorious Mashup Of Ripped Off Songs

Ripped Off Songs Mashup
Can You Tell The Difference Between These Tunes?

Katy Perry might have been the latest musician to, umm, borrow a melody from another song, but she’s far from the first. Comedian/musician Chad Neidt made this delightfully catchy one-minute mashup of 12 other songs that were pretty much note-for-note copies of the originals. From Sublime to One Direction to Nickelback (the only band in the bunch that ripped off a song from itself), this video has all the answers to the question, “Haven’t I heard this song before?” [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

This is the ensemble Katy Perry wore to “Good Morning America” this morning, to promote her impending album, Prism (I know it’s called Prism because there are literally 5,000 spray-painted advertisements for it on every street corner in Manhattan). She wore a dress featuring the Ubiquitous ’90s Daisy Print — you know, the one worn by Blossom and Kimmy Gibler, and practically every other ’90s sitcom teenager. To be honest, it’s giving me a little bit of ’90s PTSD. I remember owning a floppy “Blossom”-esque hat with that print, which I paired with a babydoll dress and my faux Docs (hey, real Dr. Martens are expensive). But even if I could get past the daisies, I cannot co-sign on the knee-high black socks thing. That was never cool. [Photo: INFDaily.com]

Roar?

Straight from the kitty’s mouth: Katy Perry told WWD back in July that her third fragrance, Killer Queen, drew inspiration from none other than Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. “[He] painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in … I feel like I’m falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted.” Several weeks later, the ad teaser for Katy’s newest beauty offering is out — and, you know, we kind of see where she’s coming from with this whole “queen” thing. But Queen, on the other hand? Not so much. [The Cut]

Oh hey, Katy Perry, what you got there? A crushed velvet red dress? Wait a second, that looks familiar … did you take a time machine back to 1993 and steal that out of my closet? Are you wearing the dress I wore to my eighth grade dance? Jesus, Katy Perry, I would have let you borrow it if you’d just asked!

Also, did you manage to drag those two kids standing behind you into the wayback machine, too? What else could explain Jean Vest Ensemble and Tiger Boobs Shirt? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Songs stuck in your head
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]

  • Katy Perry and John Mayer have recorded a duet together, “Who You Love,” which is kinda more eyeroll-worthy than sweet. It’s all about how neither of them expected to fall in love with each other. Yeah, okay, whatever. The song will appear on Mayer’s upcoming album, which debuts next week. [US Weekly]

Katy Perry Is Really Channeling Prince These Days

Katy Perry was snapped leaving a West Hollywood recording studio on Monday, in the above ensemble. Yeah, maybe she was working on her record. But we think it’s more likely, based on the frilly cravat she’s wearing, that she was simply jamming out to “Purple Rain.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

  • Katy Perry, in the new issue of Vogue, on her divorce from Russell Brand: “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me.” She also said Brand “didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour,” calling it “very controlling.” She said there is a “real truth” to why their relationship ended (um, cheating?), but she won’t disclose what it is. Oh dear, drama! [US Weekly]
  • Jon Gosselin ruined Ed Hardy’s tattoo-style clothing brand. Ruined it, I tell you! “That Jon Gosselin thing was the nail in the coffin,” Hardy said. “That’s what tanked it. Macy’s used to have a huge window display with Ed Hardy, and it filtered down and that’s why Macy’s dropped the brand.” Celebrities like Madonna used to wear Ed Hardy designs, but then Gosselin started wearing it and then the “Jersey Shore” douches and then … well … the rest is Douche History.

Man, they’ll really hand out these Vogue covers to just about anyone these days. It’s not like Anna Wintour hasn’t put an actual model on there in eons, or anything. Katy Perry is the latest pop star of dubious cultural significance to land the coveted spot, featuring what I feel like is a fairly awkward shot of her crouched on the grass in a Rodarte floral dress and bold red lip. It’s pretty, but, like, kind of BORING? They couldn’t think of anything better to do with a woman who has shot whipped cream out of her tits onstage than have her look wistful and Arthurian in a field? Weird. (Weirder: the headline in the bottom right corner.) [Fashionista] [Photo: VOGUE]

Russell Brand’s Marriage To Katy Perry Failed Because Of The Whole “Monogamy” Thing

Russell Brand spent 99 percent of his famous life as a notorious womanizer, but all bets were off when he met and fell in love with Katy Perry. Suddenly, the monogamous married life seemed as if it was calling his name and he exchanged some vows… only to get divorced a little over a year later. There’s been lots of talk about exactly what went wrong there, as Russell and Katy were just crazy enough of a couple to work. Turns out, a lot of the problem was just that Russell really, really likes having sex with the myriad of “options” in front of him. Oh, brother. Read more on Evil Beet Gossip…
